Ok. My Siggy is in D'ni, but it's been soo long since i've used the language
So....
I really need some help from the linguists who know what they're doing:

I'm trying to say:
Thank You Cyan. Uru is living. I will love you for ever.
My D'ni is not great. :)

.chev shem cyan .uru dotsahv.tahgahmem tsahn botaygahn shem b'fahsee
.oyd'nee rihlpahrah

You're really close! Good work! :D

A couple of adjustments:

  • .uru dotsahv needs an actor suffix so it refers to Uru (3rd person) not I (1st person)
  • While it's perfectly accurate as is, tahgahmem adds an additional "You know" to "I will love you always."
  • Possessive pronouns are always suffixes, not prefixes.
  • rihlpahrah is a very literal rendering of "not great" -- you might try rephrasing that using a more idiomatic quantifier, something like rahm b'vaht

Why don't you take a crack at corrections? If you need more help, I'll be right along! ;)
