'Be kind and he may share his knowledge'

From the /r/conlangs CDN, someone said that and it was commented upon that it'd make for a good example sentence.

New words for this challenge:
Spoiler:
mēdime - to share, to split, to put in the middle
Etymology: from PIE *médʰyos "in between", compare Latin medius "middle, half", Sanskrit मध्य • (mádhya) "middle" or English "middle".

fudha - knowledge
Etymology: from Sanskrit बोध bodha "knowledge", ultimately from PIE *bʰewdʰ- "to be awake, aware", cognate to English "to forbid"

Image Silvish:

Se jhentî/jhentilye e î se peu k' î partajhï son savê.
[se.ʒɛ̃ˈtiː/ʒɛ̃ˈti.ʎˑə ʔe.iː.se.pø.kiː.pɑˈta.ʒi sɔ̃n.saˈvɛː]
be.IMP.2 kind-M.N/kind-F.N and 3S.M.NOM 3.REFL SBRD 3S.M.NOM share-PRS_SBJV.3S 3S-POSS.M.C knowledge

Be kind and he may share his knowledge.


 Jhentî is for a male addressee, while jhentilye is for a female addressee.

Watch out for se when reading Silvish. It can mean "be [IMP]", "be [SBJV]", "if" or "him/herself". Consider Se k' î se se seçhé, se sek. "If he has dried himself off, be curt."
