Vissard:

Porkai ke ele fage si fraide jounedeui?
/puˈkɛ k el faʒ si ˈfrɛd ʒunˈdɥi/
why that 3SG.FEM do.3SG.SUBJ so cold-FEM today
Spoiler:
The subjunctive form of fakre "to do/make" is fage, reflecting a common pattern of inserting /ʒ/ into subjunctive forms; e.g. tenge "hold", saige "be", vouge "want", age "have".

Expressions of weather have feminine subjects for obscure reasons; compare éle neuke "it's snowing", éle fa bien "it's nice out".

jounedeui "today" comes from joune de ui "day of today"; this makes use of the oblique in joune so that no preposition is required; compare French aujourd'hui.
