I feel so loved~
But that's why I was saying to think of Japanese there. That structure is pretty much the exact same as 'valha, '. Subject is what it's about, object is what it's being done to. Val ran to the river. Val subject, ran verb, river object. And while I admit that val may structurally be just an interjection, I still say that it's the subject. Otherwise you wouldn't even bother with that bit.
