Numbers are a little funny. 3 cats is txagnáuka and 3rd cat is nákanatxag.
Constructions like 'there is' are usually just done by adding the possessed suffix '-at.'
Because is will usually be 'txúraliha' "with reason." Just as 'why' is usually 'zartxúral.'

So 'I can't sleep because...' is 'Txím yamarbálitam txúraliha ir ...... ax.'
I went with -am here because I'm focusing on my desire to fall asleep rather than the act of sleeping.

And this is probably an odd thing to ask, but am I using the grammar correctly here? "Txím [write]ana [dictionary]iyah la [grammarsketch]iyah txúraliha ir zar[amount] ir [know]ana ah xin[see]ana ah." > I'm writing without a dictionary and without a grammar sketch because I want to see how much I know. Off the top of my head. (Yes, I do this with every language I learn unless its grammar is sufficiently boring and European.)

Hmm I'd probably go with:
Txím [write]ana [dictionary]iyah la [grammarsketch]iyah txúraliha ir txír [find/see]am zar[amount]au[know]at ah
(ir txír dáminam zarkíulausúsikat ah)

OR

Txím [write]ana [dictionary]iyah la [grammarsketch]iyah txúraliha ir txír [find/see]am ir zar[amount]au[know]at txír ah

I don't think that there is anything ungrammatical about your version. But it would definitely need some pronouns.

Nested clauses (or whatever they're called) do happen occasionally. If it does happen like this:
<ir blah blah <ir blah ah> ah>
You only need the one 'ah'

lol pítsa :D
And I think you can safely conclude that Inyauk is a euroclone. :wink:
