...sigh... Ngandan has it: Mi'oi'tiem odayl'e fiqinu'as lom shiray'rasen'a In-no-times proper-(SUBJ) Tickle-(INFIN) (Lit: To give a little kiss/caress) a dragon-sleeping-(IND). Sadly, I have been translating Harry Potter into my conlang. Horrors. BTW, "Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone" translates as: Arhi Qiln'adi ei lon Lithen Fusg'u Fated (Harry) Clay-(GENDER - person) and the Stone Marvelous-(ADJ. MARKER)
