>(9/25) English: A willful beast must go his own way. Kash: (lit.) kulawu cashendek yatinjeto peñánitu
k. ca-shendek ya-tinje-to peña-ni-tu
animal ACCID-strong.willed 3s-choose-FUT
"A stubborn animal will choose his own path."
The Kash may have little experience with willful _beasts_, so they might
want to generalize this to include people: haniu cashendek yatinjeto
peñanitu "A stubborn spirit/soul/mind ...... In either version, you could
also insert _netu_ 3sDAT-REFL 'for himself' before yatinjeto.
