Kros Sam-loivjarhe yuu Cohmpuun Fuec slothate

Well, the story of Big Man Sam's journey to the roof of the world is now
complete, and can be found on my website at:

At over 170 clauses, it is by far the longest text written in Gevey. The
website includes a full interlinear cross-referenced with the text, and a pdf
document of the story in the native Gevey script (with pictures).

Composing the story has had it's problems, as I had to stop and review a
number of times: firstly to completely overhaul the modifier system, then to
re-invent the Gevey numbering system. Aargh! But at least now I *know* the
language works exactly as I intended it to work.

I won't post the whole story here (for the sake of people's bandwidths), but
here follow the first 5 paragraphs of the story.

Rik, knee deep

Shlepiete yuu pololhg deth yuu huuw shizglaa sede sekanti. Laes fuhstuush
ta'sedue thuzdendou, pits numpuush suun al pouzluush suuñ gvedue, edest
sastrhuush yuuzh bray sedue nuwanti khuulman. Pits oe'heelezh di'gratee:
montse iscuu rhabgied zhej jozgesh namawizhezh vde fosal ok trhadotee; edezd

Al yesh shlepietadh boh seduu zvejanti rha pretateh pletuu telaa.

"¡Jaakehr-daesa!" ta'zavbate Sam-loivjarhe. "Pok shlepiete tem boh ta'se

Osucuu zhmekhizhuu loifen moghlutluu sekatuu, al druu jesam iscuu goeg kitlate

oj boh grote.
