uti ha ki noa iyomeo kurikosa a I PAST have 2 PL-week vacation STATEMENT.
> 2. ocean
> I went to the ocean.
uti ha ira ma sani a. I PAST go to ocean STATEMENT. (Wow!!! I had all these words already!!!)
> > 3. rain
> It rained a lot and was very cold.
roha ha noku siri ti ha tu noku hamu a. it PAST much rain and PAST be very cold STATEMENT. Does it make sense if I have one word that means "much, many, very", depending what it's modifying? That's what |noku| is currently, anyways.

> I vomited profusely.
uti ha noku houko a. I PAST much vomit STATEMENT.

Skipping just because.

uti ha tuko siore hinaru. I PAST must walk back.

Skipping just because.
