New Pazmat!

From this you can really see the massive differences between the old Pazmat and the new one, yet there are some minor vocab similarities.

Incidentally, dāvāt ("because [of that]", lit. "from/of this") is not needed, but it strengthens the sense of "because". You could also use a participle (ceberā jatarerāba).

New words for this challenge:

praykēname - to sell
Etymology: from kēname "to buy" + prefix pray- "to, front, fronting, getting away"

pertecī - cook
Etymology: from perteme "to cook" + rare person suffix -cī

Because our cook isn't here, we can't sell the food that we wanted to sell.


Deriving new words for this, I was particularly fond of the monstrosity that is chgribgregrg "food/to eat" [ˈhʀɪbʀɑːɡ].
