All the elements are there ;) Just the grammar that’s a bit off.

Normally, the modal (tsun) comes first, the dependent verb (fta si) comes after. Also, modals require the ‹iv› infix in the following verbs.

     Oe tsun (ay)fta sivi. / Tsun oe (ay)fta sivi.

Are both possible.

So ayfta si is possible? (I wondered about that ay+ in this verb)

I was wondering that myself, ma Toliman :-\ but since we can attribute nouns in si-verb constructions (kem si > tsakem si > kem leyewla rä'ä si etc.), I think, why not? ;)

If you are able to tie more than one knot … :P

I would say: Tsaw sleyku futa oe 'efu hiyìk nìtxan.

(I am not sure but it should work...)

I would say: Tsaw sleyku futa oe 'efu hiyìk nìtxan.

Not quite …

Tsal (= tsa’ul) / Fì’ul sleyku/’eykefu oeti hiyìk nìtxan.
If ‘it’ is a thing.

Tsakemìl/fìkemìl sleyku/’eykefu oeti hiyìk nìtxan.
If ‘it’ is an action.
