Ultra-correct Kash: yan ipakransa, ombi re yakayasa yunoni ya-n i-pakran-sa om-ni re ya-kaya-sa yuno-ni 3s/acc 3pl-kill-past reason-its that 3s-know-past all-its i.e., because he knew all about a certain matter, presumably known from previous context. Odd, or a case of extreme jealousy: yan ipakransa, ombi re yakayasa yunoç -- where yunoç is plural, 'all things, everything', i.e. he was omniscient.
