I did these for Gladilatian back then. This is for Seezzitonian.

Note: There's an understood "pobib" ("at the place") here. "The threshold
is (at the place) at which is the door." I took advantage of Seezzitonian's
loose word order to make the sentence nicely symmetric.

Personal pronouns are indicated by the person number followed by case data,
e.g. 1XS-ASS-1F for "boyu", meaning "my"
NEG is the abbreviation for a negative form.
Adjectival cases can be distinguished from the corresponding adverbal cases
because the latter will be followed by gender and number and the latter by
tense and mood.
