Test Sentences, 102

Continuing with Gary’s list:

  1. Aha! I have caught you!

Aside from the whole issue with interjections, there is the issue with “catch”. “I” might be the agent, but “you” are the subject of the sentence–the entity that is moving. “I” am also the destination. So, we will use a reflexive form there, and a form of tɨŋi prefixed by eya to denote less volitionality in the subject (that’s “you”).

Oh, and we’ll make that interjection he!

133. he! lenada Å‹idi eyotni.
