  3. Use form three when there are many instances of <thing> present, and you want to spit on one of them in particular.
  4. Use forms four through eight to add a modifier, typically an intensifying adverb, to the verb.

As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Spit searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "spit box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "spit 2.box" for the latter.

Spit can be modified with an arbitrary word of your choice. Usually you'll use an intensifying adverb as shown in the examples above. Note that Spit does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Spit displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "spit derisively", "spit sarcastically,", and so on. You can also "spit 18373649" or "spit toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
