"to" should be left off verbs; it is not part of the lexical form. {xairgau} 
is not intransitive; even plain {xrani} is transitive. I think "cause injury" 
is a better gloss than "injure", but "cause injury" could also be a gloss for 
{xainri'a}, so maybe {xairgau} should be disambiguated with "agentive".
