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

Why is it so cold today?

Silvish uses the same "pro/per quid" derivation for "why" as a lot of Romance languages (parcoû). The Silvish term is partly fossilized because the "quid" reflex has dropped out of use as a stand-alone word. Still, most speakers can parse parcoû after a fashion through exposure to French and/or Italian.

(The verb egon, of which dago is a conjugated form, corresponds more or less to Spanish estar.)

Pazmat uses a comparative adjective in the athematic singular definite locative--that is, it says "why (is it) at very-cold-ness?".

PL~wind  why    today INF-be_cold-CVB PL-3INAN-ABST-blow
Effectively, "The winds, why today coldly do they blow?" Less formally, the verb -dona "blow" might be omitted and -vehad "be cold" raised to matrix position, giving:


Image Atili: Urusim buro dyo wozvehad?

Code: Select all

ur~usim  buro  dyo   w-o-z-vehad?

This is more like "The winds, why today are they cold?"
