IPA- vs PA- -IN verbs...
 
I've noticed a number of verbs where people there will be both an IPA- version and a PA- -IN version.
 
For example:
ipairal and pairalin
 
In the examples in the Text Search tool from newspaper articles, both of the above verbs seem to be used in the same way. Maybe there is a subtle meaning difference? Or maybe not? The UP Dictionary lists both verbs as existing, but doesn't indicate the difference (if one exists)...

"it's just that with pa- -in, you're the one actively making the dog eat? You're feeding the dog
But with ipa-, you're kinda just letting the dog eat"
 
"Pakainin mo sa aso ang karne.
Pakainin mo ang aso ng karne.
Ipakain mo sa aso ang karne.
Ipakain mo ang aso ng karne."
 
Jerry the linguist @mr_gerbear on twitter, responded. He said it was curious that pa- -in is missing from his reference grammar.
