to have, to own = ufalu = "verb owned abstraction" horse = ykepebo = "noun strong warm animal" to buy = ujeti = "verb gained trade" I have found all these words in the dictionary: Ygyde dictionary: There are more words in the main file: and grammar file: The words "another and other" are pronouns, and yet they are not in the grammar file. This is clearly an omission. I have just added them to the grammar file - I hope Patrick Hassel-Zein will approve it. imu = another, imi = other The verb "become" is also missing in the dictionary. I have just invented it: to become = ucolu = "verb changing abstraction" By the way, I am not happy with the existing translation texts. I believe they should be much longer and pertaining to the modern world.
