:chn: Mandarin

如果他们想知道我死亡了怎么样,就告诉他们:《还生气了》。
Rúguǒ tāmen xiǎng zhīdào wǒ sǐwángle zěnmeyàng, jìu gàosu tāmen: “Hái shēngqì le”.
if 3PL want know 1SG die-PERF how, then tell 3PL: "still angry PART"
If they want to know how I died, tell them: "still angry"

This is a little clumsy, maybe someone can come up with a more elegant solution.

:deu: German

Wenn sie fragen, wie ich gestorben bin, dann sag ihnen: "Immer noch wütend"
[vɛn ziː ˈfʁaːgn̩, viː ʔɪç gəˈʃtɔɐ̯bən bɪn, dan zaːk ˈʔiːnən: "ˈʔɪmɐ nɔχ ˈvyːtʰənt]
when 3PL.NOM ask-3PL, how 1SG.NOM die-PP AUX.PST.1SG, then tell-IMP.2SG 3PL.DAT: "still still angry"
If they want to know how I died, tell them: "still angry"

Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

Vigo barci otéi yòilkai, cenʻit bicas: sipuyǽndegas.

if ask-3PL how PST-die-1SG, 3PL.OBL tell-JUS.2SG: still-angry
If they ask how I died, tell them: still angry.

Note that this sentence is ungrammatical in descriptive grammar: A classifier like "ándegas" (furious) cannot stand alone. However, as this is a spoken sentence it's fine, albeit a little odd.
