Although, to be fair, some of the bloat was of a kind that there'd be a high probability of a later translator cutting back out!
Popping in to say that my translation actually ended up a bit shorter than yours! It’s 122 words in total.

The Bokisig text that I received had 75 words, and my English translation of it had 138 words. The Ronc Tyu text I sent on had 190 words, and my English translation of it had 217 words. So it seems I alone added 80 words, or more than 50% of the length of the previous text. However...

Part of the increase is because I did not translate very literally, but adapted the text to make sense within my conculture, which included a small amount of semantic elaboration. But the larger part is probably due to the fact that Ronc Tyu uses lots of serial verb constructions (SVC), so in order to get an idiomatic Ronc Tyu sentence, you basically always have to add a few words even if the rest of the sentence may turn out structurally similar to English. And my English back-translation reflects that. (Many of these SVC could be suitably translated as a single English verb in the next round, reducing the wordcount again, but for that you need to translate rather loosely, and apparently that's not what happened here.)

By the way, if you count syllables, the Bokisig text (220) is actually longer than the Ronc Tyu text (199)!
(But not if you count segments, admittedly: 489 vs. 553)

@Frislander Just want to let you know in advance that I will definitely be behind schedule by at least a couple of days. Right now I'm trying to make sense of the Dánıdoo text and get it parsed into English. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Just another update, I am done with the grammar and am doing the dictionary as I go along in my translation of the text, which is about halfway done. I am almost there [:D]

No problem! There's two options really: You can join Ring 2 by asking Linguifex to forward you their torch or join Ring 1 and wait for it to get to you :)

Ok, will do!

Linguifex, can you forward your torch to Dzeta (and your English to me)?

Also just a heads-up Jackk that Atruozan has two a's and no e in the name.

No worries—I always forget you can tag people by quoting them. [:D]

Oh, also Linguifex can you now send me your English, given that you're no longer the last in your ring?

Whatever it may be, I hope you get well soon. [<3]

I’ve sent the torch but the English will have to wait until I get back from the doctor. I’m using mobile currently so I have no access to the English.

Very late to the game, but I'd like to join if there is still space? I will use Common Dilmunidic, my latest conlang which I have been sketching and could do with some impetus to flesh it out. Thanks!

Just realised I haven't posted that I've received the torch, so yes, I have received the torch.

Absolutely! [:D] In the interest of time, do you mind being added to Ring 2?
