Re: KLBC - Focusing on Verb problems

How come I always receive Gina's mails as an attachment?

OVS always stays in the same order OVS. When you have more than one verb, there is always a "main" verb 
and a "helping" verb which takes a suffix (perhaps someone else can explain this more exactly).
You should read section 6. "Syntax" of TKD, there is everything explained concerning more verbs.

But for know I cannot answer to your question more deeply, maybe you give an example so I can see what 
you mean. There are too many different cases to give a general answer.
