Cet homme (ou "ce mec") court plus vite que moi.
Whether you use "homme" or "mec" depends on how close in register you want to get. "Mec" is more on par with "guy" in terms of formality.

Including pas in the second sentence gives it a contrastive sound, as if someone had just said "Jane runs faster than you," and the speaker was contradicting them. Pas is used in this contrastive sense when another negative adverb/pronoun (like deün) appears. In plain negative sentences, though, pas is obligatory.

Note that "me" is NOM if quam is used, otherwise it's ABL
Also, I don't really know how to gloss the suffix "-dam", which turns quis,quid "somebody" into quidam,quaedam,quiddam "a guy". My book says it's a demonstrative suffix, but I don't really trust it [xD]

bradaço/bradaçe nmc/nfc - guy/gal (borrowing from various Northern Italian forms; cf. It. bardassa, Ligurian bardàscia)

The most widespread Silvish words for "guy" are tipo and bradaço. The former is used across the Silvophonie, while bradaço becomes more common as you get closer to Italy. Not sure if I want to keep chave, which you can see in my 2016 post; if I did decide to use it, its current form would be tchavo.

Thank you! you can see the non-bubble version in this post. The coat of arms it's based on is in the next post up.

Yeah … I don't like it [xD] It's either <k> for /k/ and <qu> for a certain reflex of Latin /kʷ/; or <c> and <qu> for /k/ and <qù> for that /kʷ/ reflex. The latter certainly looks prettier, but it's also more complicated.

Don't forget the Spanish option: (c) or (qu) for /k/ and (cu) for /kʷ/. Though that doesn't work if you need to distinguish /kʷa/ and /ku.a/.

There is that. I feel like <cu> is too suggestive of the wrong pronunciation. This reflex of Latin /kʷ/ (specifically /kʷ/ before /a/) is not /kʷ/ in Silvish; it can be /ʃ/ or /tʃ/ or /f/, depending on the dialect. <qu/qù> is also unorthodox for those sounds, but, in my view, it's more malleable than <cu>.
