In the first part of this passage Enkidu is addressed as "jan soweli Enkitu". Then, when they start unpa, he's "mije Enkitu". Next, during days and nights of unpa, he and Samhat are "ona". After this he turned his attention to his animals, but now he's already "jan Enkitu". Through these days and nights with the woman, jan soweli Enkitu became jan Enkitu. Earlier his body was human, but his behaviour and mind were of animal. Animal can pilin=feel, but cannot pilin=think like humans do. Now Enkidu realizes he's actually a human being. His mind has broadened. While tokiponian 'pilin' can mean something like unaware perceiving, more "feeling" than "thinking", only a man can pilin about his possibilities and about understanding. In this experience Enkidu's "pilin" becomes awareness, understanding and thinking: jan Enkitu li pilin e ni: ona li ken sona. He feels-thinks that he can understand/know/be wise. This way, in this very "pilin" he started to think.janKipo wrote:What it says is clear but not what it means "Enkidu thinks he can know/understand/be wise."
To make it more clear:
jan Enkitu li pilin e ni: ona li ken sona. jan Enkitu li pilin e ni: "mi ken sona. mi pilin. mi jan". ona li kama tawa jan Sanka li lukin e sinpin ona li kute.
