I would imagine, with the limited vocabulary we have at the moment, you'd have to say something like...

Zìsìt-yä sngä'ikrr a-le-fpom ngaru leiu!
Year-GEN beginning ATTR-ADJ-well.being you-DAT be<LAUD>!
Lit: Year's beginning of well-being toward you be! (Yay!).
Happy beginning of the year to you! Cheesy

But, since the "to you" part is unsaid and understood in the English "Happy New Year!" I suppose you could just say:

Zìsìtyä sngä'ikrr alefpom!

Irayo, smukan!

I think I cried a tear of joy after reading that. I was thinking a more simple version:
Sngä'i zìsìt nìsìltsan
Begin year well.

Great work! Now trying to say that is a different accomplishment.

Very nice translation!

Could you just explain a-le-fpom (ATTR-ADJ-well.being) to me?

sngä'ikrr a-le-fpom

Adding le before a noun makes it an adjective therefore fpom (well being) becomes an adjective le-fpom almost an "of well being"
Adding a to an adjective shows the noun it modifies, it always goes on the side closest the noun. a-le-fpom means it is modifying the word before it sngä'ikrr.
Beginning time of well bell being.

- I hope I helped, took me some time to decipher it myself.

Sngä'i zìsìt nìsìltsan!
Happy New Year to everyone!

At this time, I want to thank Cameron, to make all this possible. He is the king of his world he created. And I give the scepter to him.
I take my hat off to you, James!

Now I'm off, see you in 2010! Wink
