two words in use: 'e'al and kangay si
« on: November 18, 2012, 04:28:40 pm »
I've slowly been collecting my own dictionary which has examples along with the words.  Some day, I hope for this work to be rolled into a new and improved community dictionary system.

In any case, I was completely unable to find a single example of 'e'al worst in use.  So I asked Pawl if it occurred in some dialog that didn't make it into the film.  It had —

Quote from: Pawl
GRACE
Please – this will only confirm their worst fears about you –
Rutxe—ayngari fìkem feyä ’e’ala topur kangay sìyi nì’aw.
please about-you this their worst fears valid will-make only

So, here we have 'e'al in action, and a heretofore unseen verb, kangay si validate, confirm.

(He may reconfirm kangay si in a blog post soon.)

And possibly make clear how to put infixes to this verb....

It is taking a while.  Hunting down examples and sifting them is quite tedious.

I have not.  I'll see if I can extract one (gently) from Paul.
