Ooh, I like this! In Carashan: Lo conto era in caimeilo ao jovaico muilato della cosea. the count was in infatuation to the youth muscled of-the kitchen. Three interesting points: I already had a phrase "to be infatuated with"- esser in caimallo a, "to be in infatuation to". "Caimeilo" is from the Ardos word caiemacula, a diminutive of caiema "love" Muilato "muscled" is from muila "muscle", from Aredos muscula, literally meaning "little mouse"- a direct calque from the Latin phrase. Cosea "kitchen" is from the VL word cocina. I have so many Latin loans in Carashan!
