Line 7 of the KÄ“len Jabberwocky:

il jīla þō ñi macāppacāe matāλisse rā xō rā jamēþena jaxēla kiē;

anÄ«la is “time”. The singular jÄ«la is “a piece of time” or a “moment”. il jÄ«la þō is “during that piece of time” or “at that moment”. ñi macāppacāe matāλisse rā xō is “mercurial/impatient macāppacāe came/went to there”. rā jamēþena jaxÄ“la kiÄ“ I will discuss tomorrow.

In the afternoon, the circular lizards did gyre and gimble around the shadow-stick.
The easily-annoyed thin-winged bird-spiders were annoyed.
     The lost chicken-pigs make cough-cries!

Beware macāppacāe, its biting teeth, its many catching claws,
the frumious makīmaþālen, the macūcū bird
     Be away from them.

For 1/8th of a day, he searched for his enemy, a deadly blade in his hand.
Therefore, leaning and still, he thought under the jasātsātena.

At that moment, mercurial macāppacāe came to there…
