In Kélen: héja wa Tó ánén anróñi; hí hija jáo hí ñarra anróñi ho anhári; good+future.aspect LA:negative this-here with eyes; if LA:possible+future this then Ñ eyes instrument-case water; Syntax: LA (thing-that-exists) Syntax: ÑI+agent (thing-acted-upon) Or, in simple(r) English: It would be a good thing that this not be with eyes. If this maybe is then you act on the eyes with water.

And: é heja anhénár hí ilnaren pa anhóhíki jánne ancílre; and LA:good+future properness if always PA things-cooked(n.collective) beginning(n.singular) freezing-ness(n.stative); Syntax: PA (whole (part (part))) So, Properness will happen if always the frozen-state is (part of) the beginning of the cooked-things. -- Sylvia Sotomayor The Kélen language can be found at: This post may contain the following characters: á (a-acute); é (e-acute); í (i-acute); ó (o-acute); ú (u-acute); ñ (n-tilde);
