Daas:
Ŝisai le se'kou lu te'tif li pu Oo'di
/ʂisai le seʔkou: lu teʔtix' li pu: o:ʔdi/
priest S pen.PST NOMI paper INANIM for king
(I kind of do my own version of glossing, if that's okay. I hadn't heard of it and developed it on my own unknowingly... Is it still understandable?)

The priest wrote a letter for the king.
Or
The priest penned a paper for the king.

The Daas people have little experience with a mailing system outside of what they've heard of from travelers, so no word for "letter" has arrived yet.
Also, that /ʂisai/ is a Japanese loanword from "司祭", /shisaiʔ/.
he/him, they/them
Forgive me if I seem uneducated or disorganized, I am new to the community and vocab.
