Pwitio poršo, wa pwitopepo požabo.

A bit clumsy but often I like to translate into Poswa by changing more than is absolutely necessary. I could have done this without saying "toilet paper" twice, but doing it this way fits the rhythm I like for the language. Poswa has no words for "have", "any (of that)", etc. but the /pwitopepo/ word could have still been something like wafepo "i control what you'll get".
I'll take the theses, and you can have the thoses.

I have all the toilet paper and (from that) you can't have any.

New word for this challenge:

decelborat [Southern Standard] - toilet paper
decelesme [Northern Standard] - toilet paper

Etymology I: decel "toilet" + borat "paper; sheet of paper"
Etymology II: decel "toilet" + esme "sheet of paper"
Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

I have all the toilet paper and you can’t have any. (Lit. I have “all” of the cloth, it can’t be taken.)

Gondolan society, and it's daughter cultures, don't have toilet paper. So I figured I'd just substitute it for cloth.

Also I'm kinda surprised at how short this sentence is compared to English, tbh. Usually Gondolan is kind of unwieldly.
  • :con: Gondolan, the pride of the Gondolan empire.
  • :con: Tsodanian, a tri-cons language with heavy armenian influence.
  • :con: Yaponese, an isolated language in Japan.
  • :con: Mothaukan, crazy tonal language.
