Txím súsikana ínyaukaya.
Quote:
I know people.


La txím kúmatxana ínyaukahi.
Quote:
And I speak Inyauk.


Txínaimip ir fír nífinaaáyarikat ínyaukahi ah.
Quote:
I am glad that you want to learn Inyauk.


Quote:
kúmatx - to speak
nífin - desire
áyarik - to learn/meet
ímip - glad


-----

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this yet but inyauk literally means people.
So the first sentence would translate as 'I know people.' and the second would be 'I speak Inyauk.'

Don't worry if you don't understand what's going on yet. You will soon enough.

EDIT: Damn why don't you guys have a spoiler tag?

Question: If an Inyauk toddler encountered an object that they didn't yet know the word for and wanted someone else to tell them, what would they ask?

(Is this thread only for conversation, or also small questions?)

Zarní? - /θaɾ'ni/ - 'What is it'
Zarníat? - /θaɾ'niʔat/ - 'What is this (that I am holding)?
Zartsáag? - /θaɾ'ʦaʔag/ -'What is this thing?'

Txím yasúsikana.
But it seems reasonable to ask questions as well.

Sweet! Okay, selfish requests that need only apply to me:

- Where natural, please use complete sentences (whatever that means for Inyauk)
- If you can tell what I'm trying to say but I'm not saying it right, or even not quite naturally, please give me the correct thing to say instead
- Please avoid translating or explaining in English like the plague :)

Yeehaw! And deixis to boot!

Hmm...there's something going on with "Nínahansar", "Zarníhansar?", and "Nahaánsar" I haven't pegged yet--probably some morphophonemic tweaking. It'll come.

And now for more mad experimentation!
