The simple tense is formed from the infinitive form of a verb by using the present tense preverbal temporal article 'DI'.
* I do not eat the meal = Ez nan y NA xuom The interrogative of form of the verb is formed by either emphasising the questioning tone of the speech or by changing the position of the subject of the verb immediately to follow it, preceding the direct object.
For the passive voice of the verb, the simple present tense is formed by conjugating the verb 'to come = Hatin' followed by the complement article 'E', preceding the infinitive form of the transitive verb in active voice.

I believe strongly that, in the interests of user predictability, any multi-argument min() or max() function should return a (quiet) NaN if ANY of its arguments are NaN.
Now, it is true that a common, but naive, implementation of min() and max() may have what I call undesirable behavior because of the faulty assumption that there are only two outcomes of comparison, rather than the three of IEEE 754: float max(float x, float y) { return ((x > y) ?
NaN min(1.00, NaN) -> NaN max(NaN, 1.00) -> NaN min(NaN, 1.00) -> NaN max(NaN, NaN) -> NaN min(NaN, NaN) -> NaN C and C++ lack min() and max() functions, so they are not good candidates for testing existing practice.
