Vocab #3

Okay, here is a very late partial vocab 3.

The names are pretty garbled, since Ikanirae Seru has such an insanely
limited phonological inventory.  I'm only going to do the easy
sentences for now, since I have to make up most of the vocabulary even
for them.

> 1. to steal
> Jean Valjean stole a loaf.
Yani Hariyani ha tareko nemai a. Jean Valjean PAST steal loaf STATEMENT
> 2. to arrest
> He was arrested.
ha hemoku eki a. PAST arrest him STATEMENT.
>3. prison
momoyakasi (lit. punish-house)
>In prison, Javert disliked Valjean.
kata momoyakasi, Yaheti ha kotosi Hariyani a. In prison, Javert PAST dislike Valjean STATEMENT.
> 8. to chase
> Javert chased Valjean to his [Valjean's] new hiding place.
Yaheti ha oakari Hariyani ke oru enaimekano ro eki a. Javert PAST chase Valjean to new hidingplace of him STATEMENT.
> 10. suicide
mikoru ini "kill oneself"
> Valjean's kindness made Javert commit suicide.
Hariyani tu rehini ha rokiya Yaheti mikoru ini a. Valjean be kind PAST rokiya Javert kill self STATEMENT. Intentional obvious English influence: "make" meaning "cause" and "make" meaning "create" are both "rokiya" in Ikanirae Seru.
