The distinction between wanting (DESIDERATIVE) and needing (OBLIGATIVE) is slightly blurred and somewhat different from English in Vanga, and has much to do with the nature, or importance, of the goal for which something is wanted/needed.

In the case of the sentences of this TC, the first two may or may not both be covered by the desiderative. Consider the following:

alıuqanzı
I need / must have money (it is very important or I might be screwed in some regard)
a-l<i>ʷk-ъ-anət-ʲə
CONT-money<PROX>.V-NVL-OBL-1


alıuqılzı
I want / need money (not as important)
a-l<i>ʷk-ъ-ələt-ʲə
CONT-money<PROX>.V-NVL-DES-1


The first one might be used when one really needs money, for example to pay the rents lest one wishes to be thrown out on the street. The latter is for less imperative things; perhaps one would really like money for a new car, but it's not so much important for one's well-being as an itching desire to get a little present for oneself.

The last one is simple:

alıuqımı
I do not have money
a -l<i>ʷk-ъ-ʲə=m=Ø-ʲə
CONT-money<PROX>.V-NVL-1=NEG=AUX-1
