Sentence 1, part 3

Tena ni aɬudan ni loho tɛŋɛteya dusena ŋɛha—da daɬo ɛnnavi baŋi tɛndɛ kɨtlɛ na dɛmɛ—na dona nɛn lude kyala dantɨŋe.

An argument is being had by the north wind and the sun with each other—it is which of the two is stronger—when a traveler with a warm cloak came along.

And now for the last clause in Sentence 1. It is introduced by the clausal conjunction na when, not to be confused with the modifier na. Conjunction na denotes that the conjoined clauses are taking place at the same time.

The verb in this clause is dantɨŋi, again in the imperfect with reported evidentiality. Dantɨŋi is a modified form of the verb tɨŋi ((S) A → D). The prefix dan– disallows anything in the S and D roles.

We have two new nouns in this clause: dona traveler, a class 1 noun, and lude cloak, a class 3 noun. The adjective kyala warm modifies lude.

That leaves nɛn, a preposition [prep] that defines the relationship between the main noun dona and the secondary noun phrase lude kyala. Nɛn marks a comitative association along with, with, and.
