> 1. to think
narethanaal has three different words meaning "to think": denka: to think (but not know) thare _____ [possessive pronoun of your choice] dedenka: to think (opinion)[this is a construction meaning that "_____" whatever "_____" is (the opinion) owns whomever's thought... it gets really complicated if the possessive pronoun is anything other than "my" because those possessives are formed using "thare" as well] finally, there is the word i would use to translate the sentence below: rain: to think/to ponder
> I think about many things.
mefora gobera preend muetos rain myo... some-pl things about constant think i

thiwe: to plan/intend

> 7. to snap
i'm not sure how i want to handle this so i'm going to skip it for now...

> My ears are freezing.
dkai lijevevelona frent yest idorep myo... my ears* present be frozen i *lit: brain tunnel (eyes are the window to the soul and ears are the tunnel to the brain.. <defenseively>it makes sense</defensively> sorta...)
