In Jadúno... ("spanish" orthography, û is a long-duration u, accent marks do not indicate stress accent) "Rulla sûrabs." I-acc Answer-fut. (Myself will answer) [I do intend to get all of these eventually, though I'll probably not post them all to the list...]

"Ruc chorebtjai crere jémdes." I-nom Town-ess-ad West-adj Dwell-pres ("I make my home at a western town.")

"Ruc diftreldes, jaba ruc inglese pufdoanabs." I-nom vol-Learn-pres, reason I-nom English-adj abil-speak-future. (I would learn, so that I may speak English.) Using 'inglese' here because I'm not sure if the native form (*dlese by then) should survive to this generation of mencherso. Yup, Jadúno is a descendant of Kaðuhhan; conculturally modern-day and somewhere near Spain. (Not Portugal, which is what they'd want you to believe.) *Muke!
