Herewith the Babel text in Jases Lalal, the language the Rihana-ye folk (who
are unfriendly neighbors) call Hemana-ye. Doing this has pushed the Jases
vocabulary to 511, breaking the 500 barrier. However, the language has
recently undergone and is still undergoing a major revision, so this must be
considered tentative. There are still significant Rihana-ye elements I (or officially
the priests of the rather fanatically xenophobic local religion) are trying
to purge. All the prepositions and verbs have recently been revised, and
sentence word order is subject to furtrther change.
