Bahasa Indonesia: Kalau kamu sebut saya gila sekali lagi, akan makan matamu yang lain! Non-native, of course; but not too bookish I think. Follows the English word order quite closely. Of note: se-kali 'one-time', lagi 'more, again'; pronoun 'I' unnecessary in the 2nd clause; akan 'future tense marker', mata-mu 'eye-your', yang 'relative marker', lain 'other'. (kamu and -mu are familiar forms; the {e}'s in this case are all [@] )
