Since the 18th conlang relay is not yet finished, (It ran into some delays. All relays run into some delays.) I will cover my text for the 17th Conlang Relay aka “The Unfinished Relay”, because it is still delayed.

The title of the 17th Conlang Relay Text is:

xiēn jē jakērþe japīña;

which I translate as “Concerning the Bad Horse.” jakērþe isn’t exactly “horse” but it does refer to a domesticated animal that can be ridden like a horse, so close enough.

The first sentence in this story introduces us to the main participants in the story:

se macūma; se jakērþe;

The man, the horse.
