Re: jan Kikamesi. jan lawa pi ma tomo Uluku

jan Kikamesi li lukin e pale. ? I thought you had my finger problem and meant "lape' but now I am not sure. Gilgamesh looked at/saw sleep or, 'pali', activity? or 'lukin lape' "tried to sleep"? (I take it 'lukin' is a helping verb like 'wile' that takes a whole predication as a comple...

Re: jan Kikamesi. jan lawa pi ma tomo Uluku

tenpo ala LA ona li lukin e pan e telo nasa

jan lawa soweli li lape la jan Enkitu li pale ala Again the contrast of "when. while" with "if" is lost (but is it needed?), I assume 'pale' is 'lape' as I would type it.

taso soweli LI pilin ike tawa ona

Thanks for the clarification, it is a nice point (in both senses of the word, hence some of the difficulty).

Re: Disyllabic Names

Hell, I couldn't figure out mine if I didn't know it. But I do admit to being curious, since I can't think of a name that gives that (Bush? nah!).

Re: jan Kikamesi. jan lawa pi ma tomo Uluku

Good, 'kama' is out of the 'tawa' class. And now we have "after several days" to add to 'for several days" and "several days ago". The pre-'la' area, at least with 'tenpo' needs some work. I'm not used to 'alasa' yet either and it may not survive, but if we don't use it, it ...
