A excerpt from a silly love song.
Fuke gyutokij kyufulo
I gyutokij dnyamu
Ez junamal bwalkiithi kapiq
Luzi lilye luzi kdumlo
I na runiij kdumlo
Ebl tslaks dbanyam llol sa
Ebl tpe tslakl i frtfj
I na gyutokij dnyamuthi
Izfath lo yomlo
Haipijl thij lo be
I runiij tpe tslakk lilye sta
Chorus: Junama! Poama dom thailutheka yubam!
Sunama! Poama sutii stam!
Kwizku, gwaba, inyu
Au nektar, sunama
Bananu yism stas
Ala ma haocrda debl tslaq dgyutoq sleism.
Through the orchard I was walking happily,
In the orchard of grandmother
When an apple fell on my head
I dreamed a most beautiful dream
In this garden I dreamed
I was picking up all the fruit
All the types of fruit that was there
In this orchard of my grandmother.
Then I turned around
And saw before me
The most beautiful fruit of all in the garden.
Chorus: Apple! How red your cheeks glow!
Pear! How sweet you are!
Orange, maraculla (marakulla????)
Grape, guava, pineapple
Bananas are gold
and apricots are soft
But you are the most delicious fruit of them all.
There is a script for this language, or rather, many
of them. Hieroglyphic, demotic and an adapted greek
script. I am thinking about inventing one that uses a
brush-ink medium, instead of pen and crayon. Id love
to post these scripts and more on a websight, or some
other way for people to see them, but sadly lack to
know-how. Any helps????
Thank you all. This list has been a great inspiration
to me, and many of your comments have helped and
encouraged me. Celebrating the 1,001 word of Bakoyu:
Mani = peanut butter.
Again, munzye, munzye, munzye,
Yubwainku i laiwiiyepec dgweimatli bakoyu yubwai sa,
