I've sent in a 30 second impromptu translation to English, but as if a speaker with Taruven as L1 had made it. As you'll see, in Taruven poetry[*], rhythm is all. I'll try translating it into Taruven proper when the lexicon cathes up with yours. I mean, a word for *tusks* already? :) I'll work on one into Norwegian as well, but that'll take longer as my vocabulary is smaller (and yes, it's my L1!) [*] The types I've worked with so far anyway. t.
