Spanish term or phrase: subordinador de propósito
Compárese esto con las preguntas con kuna.ru.sa ‘¿a qué?’ (3.21.12), que se
contestan con un verbo nominalizado con el **subordinador de propósito** –iri2, y
con las preguntas con kuna.t.sa ‘¿de qué?’ (3.21.22 y 3.21.23). Otros ejemplos
de preguntas con –taki:
================
Compárese el último con el **subordinador de propósito** –iri2 (2.12.12) en
Yati.q.iri.w jut.ta. ‘Vine a aprender’.
=================
El sufijo –ña puede usarse para expresar
obligación. La combinación de –ña más el sufijo beneficiario –taki (3.21.3)
actúa como un **subordinador de propósito**
==================
En su esencia –ña.taki es una construcción
nominal y por lo tanto puede mostrar las cuatro personas nominales; –iri
como **subordinador de propósito** no muestra persona

etc.

It seems to fit the context best.
