Verimak in Nedm

From:Joe Mondello <rugpretzel@...>

Here's the Nedm translation of Verimak.  I used the modal verb j "to not do"=20
and the suffix =F3yon "from now on" (normally tenses are modal prefixes and=20
aspects are modal aspects, but in this case I wasn't sure which one "from no=
on" is.  Help, please?) to translate the word verimak
Also, I was wondering what the names of Nedm vowel sounds are.  They go as=20
a=09as in at
=E1=09as in buy
e=09as in get
=E9=09as in pay
i=09as in in
y=09as in be
o=09as in on
=F3=09as in go
u=09as in but
=FA=09as in too
=FC=09as in good
au=09as in how
aw=09as in awful

and the interlinear:

heat of-the sun no longer fear-imp. j=F3yon m=FAxy gev voxy=20 present.don't.from-now-on fear heat sun.genitive=20 fear, "m=FAxy" comes from "xwy m=FA", literally "stare below." I am present= ly=20 attempting to shift more towards verbs created from prepositions and verbs=20 with more metaphorical meanings.

"dy" also=20 indicates the expression of a feeling. By unintentional coincidence, the=20 plural ending -y is identical to the genitive singular ending -y, similar to=20 the English-s/-'s.
