I would go for something like:

Rutxe sl<eyk>u oe-yä (ay+)keyey-ti eyawr. (I'm a bit rusty on the causative, I may have failed at case endings there)

He corrects my mistakes would be

Po-l sl<eyk>u oe-yä (ay+)keyey-ti eyawr.

hmm i was thinking either

tìyawr si (kinda made up)
make/do correctness
or
tìyawr-it tìng (two legit words with a twisted use)
to give correctness

i guess if you're gonna use the caus, it would be kinda what you said.
(po-l) eyawr sl<eyk>u oe-yä (ay+)keyey-it
he causes my mistakes to become correct

tho can we really say ANY of this for sure??

EDIT: added dashes and brackets....OH and bold and italics....

I like "tìyawrit tìng" I would just say something like "oeru tivìng tìyawrit rutxe" My 2 cents.

I am not as experient as you ma Tirea, but I would say:

"Txo nga tse'a keyey, rutxe piveng fì'ut oer" - Please correct me.

As for the others, I'm not sure :(

tìyawr-it tìng (two legit words with a twisted use)
to give correctness
Would this be "oeru tìyawr tìng" or "keyeyur tìyawr tìng"? I kinda prefer the latter, but I don't have a logical reason for that :P

This is my personal favorite, but si isn't productive so I'd be careful with that...

but tìng is transitive...unless you wanna go the "tìng mikyun" route...which is probably as Frommerian as Toruk Makto...

some would argue to use eyk in that last one. tho I agree: si the si's you si in the dictionary. :p we do have the phrase ngaru tìyawr, oeru tìkxey. some people go far as to say oeru tìyawr sleyku. im not really settled on any of these...

Perhaps a more generic: kxeyeyìri oeyä rutxe oeru srung sivi. Help me with my mistakes. but that totally dodges the question: How do we say "CORRECT my mistakes"...

keystyokx.. There's an invisible -it on my tìyawrs there ::) And I somehow don't think tìng mikyun fits here...

I was referencing tìng mikyun for structure's sake. you basically suggested "tìng tìyawr" i therefore compared it to tìng mikyun structurewise. and then made that next statement.

Yeah, I got that, and I meant that the "tìng mikyun" structure doesn't seem to fit. At least it seems that way to me. And I'm sorry, I should've been more clear.

A good suggestion, but the first part should actually be "Txo ngal tse'a keyeyit" Don't forget that "tse'a" is transitive :)
