It took a while since it was long, and although I enjoyed the sample
sentences very much, I did not find the time to translate them, too.
Too many new words.  Anyway, here's my word list:

apple            mjöl                     < *melum < malum
                                            (was -e- in melum really short?
                                            Italian has 'melo', indicating
                                            long -e- instead, and -a- in
                                            malum was also long.)
