Pilovese sentences

Here are some simple Pilovese (changed the name from Pilovian) sentences.

1. Birds sing.
     Lis avelhis cantan.
     [lis av.' 'can.tan]

2. Children play.
     Lis aouris joucen.
     [lis 'aw.4is 'Zu.tsEn]
          aour is the singular form of aouris. As every Romance language
seems to have a different root for child, aour is derived from a Basque word
for child: haur

3. Dogs bark.
     Lis cinis glaten.
     [lis 'tsi.nis 'gla.tEn]

4. Bees hum.
     Las aveclas boumblan.
     [las  a.'vEc.las 'bum.blan]
          (I have just fallen in love with the verb boumblar!)

5. Baby laughed.
      (Li) Bebe ria.
      [' 'ri.ja]
           (verb is in imperfect tense)

These sentences are from a list of 1 200 sentences that were published on
the list quite some time ago.
