Almost right, only one thing to fix: not Oeyä but Oeru

So Oer/Oeru sunu... :)

Tsoklìtìri irayo (seiyi ngaru)
Thanks for the chocolate!

Uses the topical ending -ìri, which highlights the context of the verb, what is being thanked for.

I know "ngaru" is a form of "you"; "seiyi"???

Toliman:
Irayo si = thank, give thanks
Irayo seiyi = Irayo s-eyi-i = "irayo si" with infix for expresion that you are happy about that

Tsoklìtìri irayo seiyi ngaru = Thanks for the chocolate (and I am happy about this)

but you can to say just "Tsoklìtìri irayo!"
