1. forest = câtos

The forest is in that direction.
 câtos tórþim êsa.
forest thither is

2. mushroom (edible) = süômbos

I like mushrooms very much!
 ¡musë süômbon méÿu méÿu pîîra!
I-epen mushrooms very much like

3. to look for something = pêµa

I often go searching for mushrooms in the forest.
mus câtom éna süômbin péru pêµa
I forest in mushroms often search-for

4. To find something after searching for it = dêêsa (Is this meant
to be different than finding something that one wasn't looking for?)

She kept the mushroom that I tripped over.
nus, mus nimë sxêli, süômbom per arca.
she, I it-epen trip-over, mushroom past-ptc. keep

In answer to the question I just posed, I wonder if "tripped over"
shouldn't be "stumbled upon."  I can't imagine anyone clumsy enough
to trip over a mushroom!)

5. base, bottom = nitêros

At the base of which tree did you find that mushroom?
tus cüi dorîsïo níterôsïo süômbom nim per dêêsar.

There is no moss on the base of that tree.
mûûsis dorîsïo nîsïo níterôsïo éna vûûla ne.
moss of-tree that base on there-is not

7. basket = cüâsïos (bag = mâcos)

Put the mushroom in the basket.
tus cüâsïom éna süômbomë stîîve.
you basket in mushroom-epen put

8. pine needles, leaves of a conifer = várësxüôjos (vâris = conifer
+ sxüôjos = needle)

These baskets, the handles of which are made of pine needles, are
cüasïôes dôes, num amlôes várësxüojïôes êsi, noðrôes êsa.
baskets these, of-them handles made-of-pine-needles are, useful are

9. each = sênïis

That is the woman to whom I give each of the mushrooms.
nus, mus num o süombôm sênïom dôôni, güênus êsa.
that, I her to of-mushrooms each give, woman is

10. always = sólum

I always go looking for mushrooms in the forest through which we
walked today.
mus, µus nom tércüe dámrëvi per têrpi, catâsïo éna süômbon sólum
I,  we it through today past-ptc. walk, forest in mushrooms always
