Extra points for catching my typo. Sorry 'bout that!
Visitön means to visit. p-[/p] is the passive voice marker, and [i]a- is the present tense marker. -om is the feminine affix.
Pavisitom: He is visiting.
Cil pavisitom jul - The child, (he) is visiting school.
The word for throat is gug.
V Reflexive Pronoun, Reciprocative Pronoun, Root structure
The reflexive pronoun in Volapük is ok. Here are some examples for how it is used:
Mütob oki lärnon - I make myself learn.
Flapom oki - He hits himself.
Flifükof ofi - She refreshes herself.
The reciprocative pronoun is od. Examples:
Löfofs odis - They love each other.
Logoms odis - They see each other.
Every Volapük root starts and ends with a consonant. Always. No exceptions. Volapük rigik ("Classical" Volapük, Schleyer's original language lit. Language of-world original) progressed without his consent in some ways. A few roots beginning with vowels crept in, Ägüptän (Egypt) is one of quite a few examples. Arie de Jong converted these words to fit Volapük's original rules. (Ägüptän was changed to Lägüptän).
The other rule of Volapük roots is that they should be around one syllable long. They can be longer, but Schleyer preferred to keep the roots to just one syllable. Especially with verbs. Who wants to conjugate a four mile long verb with all of those roots. It would be very complicated!
Any root can be a noun, verb, adjective, or adverb. I can't really think of one that would fit in all the categories, but many fit in one or two. For example:
Pükön: to talk
Pükiko: The adverb form of talkative.
Neither Pükik or pükiko are actually used in real life, but they are possible.
Sudel - Sunday
Mudel - Monday
Tudel - Tuesday
