earlier PST-think-1SG that DEF.CONC=correlation COND-imply-COND.3SG.INAN DEF.CONC=causality
I used to think correlation implied causation.

but_then PST-do-1SG course DEF.GEN=statistics | DEM 1SG.OBL not_anymore-think-INV.1SG
But then I took a statistics class. This is not thought by me anymore.

DEF.INAN=course EVID.INDR-CONT-help-3SG | maybe
Sounds like the class helped. - Maybe...

New words for this challenge:
Spoiler:
leʻicîyidal [leːʔɨkɨˈɕiːdɐl] - correlation
Etymology: leʻi "same, equal" + cîyidal "development"

arámasé [ɐˌɾaːmɐˈseː] - causality, causation
Etymology: arámas "being the reason of; fundamental" + concept suffix -sé
Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

Sounds like the class helped.

Well, maybe.

Notes
The translation of "Now I don't" literally means "Now I don't believe that", where "that" replaces a subordinate clause. In Silvish, to replace a subordinate clause or another non-noun in a nominal role, use the locative pronoun i. Besides subordinates, this applies to infinitives: Jho veu jhuiyê "I want to play" → Jh' i veulyo "I want to".

One way to express how something seems, or what it resembles, is on diryó "one would say". It can be followed by a subordinate clause like in the fourth sentence of this translation. ("One would say that the class helped.") Another option is to follow it with a noun phrase in the nominative case: On diryó Veronika = "One would say Veronica" = "That looks like Veronica".

What does "Y"mean here?
ω - near-close near-back unrounded vowel.
