Verbs are built by taking the verb stem and adding prefixes to indicate the subject, tense and sometimes an object. Some prefixes will themselves be prefixed so we refer to "infixes" (essentially prefixes in the middle of a word). The subject prefixes (for persons) are ni- (I), u- (you sing.), a- (s/he), tu- (we), m- (you pl.), wa- (they) . The basic tense infixes are -me- (perfect), -li- (past), -a- and -na- (simple present and present), -ta- (future) . The object infixes (for persons) are -ni- (me), -ku- (you sing.), -m- (him/her), -tu- (us), -wa- (you pl.), -wa- (them) . The object infixes meaning it/them for other non-person classes are: M/MI = -u/i- , KI/VI = -ki/vi- , N = -i/zi- . Personal pronouns are mimi (I), wewe (you sing.), yeye (s/he), sisi (we), ninyi (you pl.), wao (they).
Clement of Alexandria (-) was an early proponent of apophatic theology.   According to . Baker, in Clement's writings the term theoria develops further from a mere intellectual "seeing" toward a spirutal form of contemplation.  Clement's apophatic theology or philosophy is closely related to this kind of theoria and the "mystic vision of the soul."  For Clement, God is transcendent and immanent.  According to Baker, Clement's apophaticism is mainly driven by Biblical texts, but by the Platonic tradition.  His conception of an ineffable God is a synthesis of Plato and Philo, as seen from a Biblical perspective.  According to Osborne, it is a synthesis in a Biblical framework; according to Baker, while the Platonic tradition accounts for the negative approach, the Biblical tradition accounts for the positive approach.  Theoria and abstraction is the means to conceive of this ineffable God; it is preceded by dispassion.
