Test Sentences, 15

Continuing with Gary’s list, and still experimenting with a one-a-day format:

  1. Lovely flowers are growing everywhere.

OK, “growing”. Remember back in post #3 of this series when I said that olaya and tadya were not going to be prefixable, and then I made an exception for tadya + tɨŋi when it came to rain in post #6 of this series. Well, here we are in post #15, and I am going to make another exception. olaya can be prefixed to tɨŋi in order to describe plants growing (going up out of the ground). But not for sunrises or children getting taller, ok?
