The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog

Stolen from ZBB. I'm not interpreting "jumps" as a frequentative, but you can do that if you want.

Pseudo-Vanga using some English roots modified for use in this TC…

Pąvvohsa tohkȧıppopa kattonaṣu.
pawn-wuhs-H tuh+kajpp-up-H kat-tun-H-ṣ-uw
The brownfox quickly jumps over the dog, who cannot bother.
brown-fox-3 dog+move_quickly_above-PER-3 bother-POT-3-NEG-REL
[ˈpɑ̃w̃ːɔxs̻ɐ ˈt̠ɔxˌkɑɪpːɔbɐ ˈkɑt̠ːɔ̃ːʂʊː]

The translation cannot bother, and the gloss bother, are false alarms of anglicism here. I merely used these translations for convenience. In fact, the proper translation of the verb root used here is that of Swedish orka/tya/palla, Danish gide, Icelandic nenna or Finnish jaksaa, which cover meanings such as 'be able to be bothered' and 'have enough strength'.

Thus this Vanga verb here, without the POTENTIAL suffix (i.e. bother-3-NEG) would mean 'he cannot be bothered', while the addition of the POTENTIAL suffix quite literally would mean 'he cannot be able to be bothered' or 'he is not able to gather enough strength/care/bother', which effectively means 'he is lazy'.

:con: Nooníí kiskn
t=ani skíín noja i-kʔáns i-ʔa j-on ski=sónánka stnka
DEF.PROX=fox quick brown/red SG3-jump SG3-go SG3-go.over DEF.DIST=dog lazy

(Pronunciation practically as it's written, no need to invent complicated orthographies for non-written languages. Acutes mark high tone, double vowels long ones and the /n/ in stnka is syllabic.)

Some points about the gloss:

The language has two definite articles t(a)= and ski= which attach to NPs as proclitics. They are formally termed the proximal and distal definite articles but in practice work equally well for pragmatic distance as for physical distance and are systematically used to differentiate between definite referents. The proximal article is the default one but only rarely appears more than once within a sentence.

The colour kʔáns refers to all browns as well as darker reds and oranges. There's a colour boundary between this colour and yellows and more golden oranges.

The sentence is given in frequentative. To get to the punctual version, just omit the frequentative auxiliary -ʔa.

The last verb -on of the serial verb complex specifies the location of the subject with respect to the object. It's strictly speaking unspecified for movement but defaults to a dynamic meaning. Thus understanding this sentence as the fox jumping on top of the dog would be strange, especially since the sentence already uses movement verbs.

One more freqentative with some added affection (switching derivation from -i- to -ele-):

Nopea ruskea kettu hyppelee laiskan koiran yli.
