We’re on sentence 7 (the final sentence) of the LCC2 Relay Text, concerning the talking rock.
ilwae sele jarÅ«na wÄ mo lerÅÃ±a to jakÄ«Ã¾a jatÄ“nnÄ jÄ“ nÄ;
jarÅ«na means “another sight or glimpse of something” and denotes that one has seen the thing before and is now seeing it again.
sele jarÅ«na “To me: another sight”. ilwae sele jarÅ«na wÄ is “Never to me another sight”. mo lerÅÃ±a to my eyes, renaming the beneficiary here. And to jakÄ«Ã¾a jatÄ“nnÄ the source of the sight, the talking rock. And look, it’s got inanimate inflection. No more personhood for that mean ol’ talking rock.
“I never had another sight of the talking rock…”
Tomorrow jÄ“ nÄ and the end of this relay text.
