hōkēñ

hookeenj

hōkēñ

We’re on this sentence of the 15th Conlang Relay Text:

ñaxxa jāŋŋeren nā ā majjārien ānen ankēwīke pē hōkēñ;

hōkēñ is a combination of the prefix hō and the mood marker kēñ. kēñ has been blogged before as the mood marker governing questions. Being prefixed with hō makes the question a “how” question. So, “How do the dancers make much beauty with little effort?”. This sentence is unchanged from the original.

Tomorrow, the final sentence!
