Done! I wasted my whole day on it, but I got it finished in time. Good for me. Go team quark!

Looks tasty... I'll try speeding up the link and do it tomorrow, or Sunday at the latest.

Done and relayed. Considerable mangling involved, but that's probably the point.

Done and relayed too. Having a nice short text like this one is definitely a good idea; I wouldn't have had the time for much more, but with this text it's been a lot of fun...

Might as well warn you now that I'll be visiting friends in York from Wednesday to Friday and I don't think I'm going to take my laptop with me. So Risla, either hurry up and finish it like tomorrow, or take your sweet time.

Weirder? I honestly felt like that second sentence was pure gibberish when trying to decipher and then retranslate it -_-

I'm finally to the point where I can look at this. Should be done tomorrow or Saturday.

Just wondering, why do some members of team II get more time?

It was partially because Nortaneous couldn't go right away, and partially because someone dropped out, and partially because one person's turn overlaps Christmas.

Haha! Yeah, it's completely weird. I ended up messing things up and thinking of various translations.

Just got it. I'll have to see if I can do it while I have a spare moment this weekend, so it might be tomorrow, it might be next week, we'll see.

Received and sending final translation to English.

Conlingual telephone results are now up.

Post subject:  Re: Conlingual Telephone VI

I should recheck, but as far as I know, neither South Eresian nor Sentalian distinguish singular and plural, so it's natural that we should essentially take a stab in the dark as to which of "god" or "gods" it should be. In Sentalian, "adm" would normally be translated as "moons", too, since there's two, although I didn't really put that into the translation guide.

Post subject:  Re: Conlingual Telephone VI

South Eresian does distinguish plurality, but the plural marking in Doayâu was small enough (just a tone change on the final syllable) that I managed to completely miss it. :P It would have been yeyéjan instead of yéjan.

I guess it didn't come up in the rest of the passage, then... :P

Post subject:  Re: Conlingual Telephone VI

Well, nice. I don't really understand the commentary on my translation... Did I miss a future tense marker? :oops:

The light in the sky indicated that the sun will rise in the west like it always does.

Post subject:  Re: Conlingual Telephone VI

Well, my gloss was this:
Forever do like here west after-that-climb sun.OBL sky in indicate light.

Pretty similar, except I interpreted <civ> as "after" and thought <zig> was an oblique case marker. Well, that's the nature of Conlingual Telephones.
