Continuing with Gary’s list:
- When will your guests from the city arrive?
OK a question with an actual question word. This took a little thinking, and I think I am satisfied by how I did this, but I reserve the right to change it later.
First, for guests, we use madÉ›lÉ›. Arriving is susi N ono where N is arriving. Guests from the city requires a relative clause, and I am going to use “other village” rather than “city”: madÉ›lÉ› ma dÉ›spÉ› hÉ¨de tÉ¨ŋi.
Now for the question word “when”. For this we are going to use the phrase baŋi É¨lÉ¨ŋi which means “which time” or “some time”. We will also use the dubitive dÉ›mÉ› as we did in other questions.
73. susi madÉ›lÉ›na ma dÉ›spÉ› hÉ¨de tÉ¨ŋi ono baŋi É¨lÉ¨ŋi dÉ›mÉ›.
