Continuing with Gary’s list:
- You must write more neatly.
Oh my. Writing. I am not sure if the people who speak sodna-lÉ›ni even have writing. If they do, it is a specialist skill. And since this sentence is especially about the physical skill of forming letters, I think I will use mÉ›h-aŋi as the verb for turning ink into letters, or writing.
So, ink. That’d be a class III, motile plural (’cause it is a liquid), so syetÉ¨di would be the proper form. Letters would also be class III, and in the sessile plural (multiple letters), so É¨lkÉ¨ni. This gives us syetÉ¨di mÉ›haŋi É¨lkÉ¨ni so far.
“You” would be the source in this case, and in the motile singular ŋidi.
“More neatly” is the adverb mÉ¨deya modified by no “more”.
And “must”…. “Must” will work like “should”, except with ka.
37. ŋidi syetÉ¨di mÉ›haŋi É¨lkÉ¨ni mÉ¨deya no dÉ›stÉ› ka.
You must make ink into letters more carefully.
