Flaidish question and a typo

Questions or discussions about Almea or Verduria-- also the Incatena. Also good for postings in Almean languages.

Flaidish question and a typo

Post by So Haleza Grise »

Not sure if I should have added this on to an older thread instead of starting a new one.

I think the example sentence Flaiden techyse sidrau should have an accusative sidraut instead? Unless I am missing something.

There's an example sentence Se ze ʔyd sammen fichet teen ʔollyd? translated as Where were you on the night of the 1ʔth? which I think is a substitution error for 17th.

How would Flaidish handle a construction like I bought a coat for winter? Would you just make winter the topic (but what if you wanted to make the coat the topic?)

Right on both counts.

I think I'd use the preposition for. (You could probably get away with the topic construction too.)
