Haliānam.
/hæli'janæm/

hali-ānam
sleep-observe.1sg.

Verb Boundary Rules:
1. If a 1st/2nd root verb joins to a 2nd root verb, the root ~a of the former verb becomes ~e (unstressed) so to mark boundary distinction.
2. If ~e meets a vowel, it changes to ~i /i/.

In this case:
to observe/sense: āna
to sleep: hala
to dream:hala+āna --> hale+āna --> hali+āna
Sikatāyām kaṇam lokasya darśasi, svargam phale vanye ca.
See a world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wild flower.
Ānantam tava karatalena darasi, nityatām ghaṇṭabhyantare ca.
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

:isl: Icelandic is interesting here. It's impersonal, and not with dative, but with accusative.

Mig dreymir.
1PS.ACC dream-3PS

In English terms, me dreams (me not as a result of bad first person subject grammar, but because it really is an object – dreams not as a result of bad first person grammar, but because it really is the third person).

It is influenced by Finnish, but there is a priori vocabulary and conjugations. I came up with havakípa just for this translation.

Worked on this today.

The concepts of dreaming and sleeping are interweaved into a higher animate entity, overlapping in meaning. One's sleep or dream is considered to be governed by this higher animate, and thus the inflection is passive.

The verb is slightly irregular tho it does follow the pattern of the similarly working one for the passing of time, so I am not sure entirely of the root shape, but I have a temporary one so far. At least I know the outcome of its actual inflected forms.

aviyas
s/he is sleeping/dreaming[ here/now]
a-w<i>ʲwh-s
CONT-dream<PROX>.V-3-PASS


This animate may be expressed nominally in order to form more poëtic ways of expression:

avıunolluoh
s/he is sleeping/dreaming (≈ s/he is back with Viu*)
a-[w<ə>ʲw-u]-na-ːl<u>-əh
CONT-[dream<NEUT>.V-REL]-LOC-foot<DIST>.V-3
CONT-[viu]-LOC-be<DIST>-3


* The nominalisation is vıu and thus the name of this higher entity.

I prefer to not be referred to with masculine pronouns and nouns such as “he/him/his”.
