What a coincidence, because Vya:a:h does something
similiar; but at the moment, I've only deciphered the
present (default) and the past (_rrhaux_ prefix to
verbs as well as nouns, ie. _voa_ day --> _rrhauxvoa_
yesterday; _yyigkja:_ he performs a dance -->
_rrhaux'yyigkja:_ he performed a dance).

Irina, I like those words _tylan_ and _hyn_. How is
it that y is pronounced in Ilaini/Valdyan?
