"Hkeem tus em farip pooexi ne-sehiimxak xuu em ooxem
yoor es tum hkumim nuroom pusitamuri!"
If you call me not right in my head again
then I eat your other eye.
tu-s 2nd person pronoun, primary case
e-m 1st person pronoun, oblique case
pooex-i name (vt) simple aspect
oox-em head, oblique case
e-s 1st person pronoun, primary case
tu-m 2nd person pronoun, oblique case
nuroo-m eye, oblique case
pusitamur-i eat, simple case
A note on orthography:
Because basic ASCII doesnt have eth or thorn chars, i use x for /T/ and /D/.
Doubled vowels indicate length.
H marks aspiration on consonents.
Wow -- finally I have enough vocab to do some basic translating... :)
