Re: KLBG beginner's %#!%*!!

ja' pI'lo:

The verb {baj} means "earn".  Its object is the thing aquired because of the
work.  The "work for" meaning is more like "work in order to get".  You can
use the verb {vum} "toil", and say {tachvaD jIvum}, or you can get a little
more figurative with the verb {toy'} "serve" and say {tach vItoy'}. :-)
