~~~Sì·Uḷìmtumraıá kamut zaḷá·zḷam!~~~
25 days to Halloween!

Kǔulàmàx htuǔlum?
Do y'all have any spooky plans?

Á·Mrızmı·mrıızkǐmı skalı.
It's always been my favorite holiday.

Mızuhìtıu·mırımı kıús ak·tmímazk·amtırraıḳmàma ak·hıḳaxı amìràkk : maras.
I sort of grew up romanticizing the American suburban trick-or-treating experience.

∴Màktasàx kıs : ḷí·s ıs·Kǎtulà KàkàTA·Lumak∴
(I did not experience this as a kid but I did see it in ET: The Extra-Terrestrial.)

Oh! A delightful coincidence. The abbreviation rules applied to the 'star-traveler' compound KATLUMAK2 produce KTAL2. (So 'ET' as a name would be translated as 'Ktala'). KTAL1 happens to mean 'home'. As in 'ET phone...'

'Serial killer' as ḳamlamaḳmàma [ˈŋɐmɬǝmǝŋˌmɑm] is quite fun to say - I should create a tongue-twister with it.
