And here we have our first tanru. Remember, the green text isn't part of lojbanic grammar, it's just here to make it a little easier!

I do not think “go'i” is a good response to a command. The “ko” refers to alis but it alo makes the bridi to a command. So does this mean alis commands herself to give bob the key? Or does the command-element of “ko” magically go away after using “go'i”? In the latter case, alis would have said “I give the car key to you.”.
The Reference Grammar doesn’t tell what happens to a “ko” when it has been “go'i”’d. So I consider the semantics of “go'i” in situations like this to be undefined. That’s certainly not good and should be avoided.

Luckily, this is not a real issue here, because Lojban has a much better response to that: “vi'o”. It’s an attitudinal and means “I undertood what you said and will comply.”. :-)
