Hmm... ['me too']
Hafta borrow a word for 'flute' (not sure if Kaðuhanne use 'falut' or
"faludcaffy zikhawappades; hama hi zikmifaluddades."
falud-ca- fy zik- hawap- a- des
hama hi zik- mi- falud-a- des
That NEG INDEF.AGT.Flute.VB.PRES
[LNK=linker (word separator) INDEF=indefinite pronoun, AGT=agent marker (is
that the name for it? like Eng. -er or -ist?)]
Roughly "One has a flute; that does not make him a flutist."
