13. Jesmiti dosofax baigixai girgixa.

Translator's Notes

(1) This is somewhat ungrammatical because the subject is 1st person inclusive plural, which includes the 2nd person, but the object is 2nd person.
(2) Liktyar remains untranslated, being a rendering of the Twisspraak word.

There are some other oddities that probably wouldn't occur in a native text.

ZBB Conlingual Telephone II Translation

CT II was run by Zoris. The Naisek  text was translated from Halyihev's Alurhsa.

Naisek Translation from Alurhsa

"Loh, har daxmer sokar dam u ska klohok sata bisingrok hanep", arkata ham bandaxmem tetser u xtudentafklem. Tam matser ga kitcata, hojadoku xiskwi edoharkaxi ti tai.

Nepo, Taharam miskala paukator hargax fali pone noku lo palme ga saxo yampi his soklas, natator doflo josptato. Hai tetse hoxati gwexkax hargax paukepu riskixxax ha matse. "Besi ga taupki mutkise. Gwexkubor ti; holaunostki gauta daxme tep nu."

Dostoku Taharam tetse, tafku daxme mentati u fam jadoke raima. Gyar tai arkata ir si fupsep he ta; gyar cofkata fam selba pone biglefata ti nepo lompata wix gintum him dosthinum.

English Translation of the Naisek Text

"Well, the woman I live with was smoking cannabis", said the father of the girl at a student party. Her mother didn't make a sound because it seemed to her a terrible thing to say.

Then, Tahara's parents began to argue with each other and so that a storm not be part of the situation, they walked until they were apart. The father wanted to stop arguing because the mother started getting angry. "This doesn't feel reasonable to me. Let's stop; there's no woman more beautiful to me than you."

While Tahara's father was sleeping, a woman suddenly appeared with him as if real. She told him he was at fault; she removed her dress and dropped it and then ran to a corner of the room.

Relay 15 Translation

The text for this relay was provided by Peter Bleackley. The Naisek  text was translated from Mike Ellis's Rhean .

Naisek Translation from Rhean English Translation of the Naisek Text
"Si Nelebarkla!" "It's a Paradox!"
Lementaxna hal dispino. Please look at the dancers.
Mitwe gauti minde. They have no plan.
Stor pehin gautim musikam josku narbelum fam. They use no music but their own voices.
Stor lentsep gauti dispaixofkap. They haven't learned any choreography.
Nage xoltor laihax supokmi natkun ehoxoki wix supim jaiksem ehoxokim. But they can perform any kind of step desired in any direction desired.
Stor laihin dispai lanhossi tep swala joufala. They perform a more precise dance than all others.
Emi gautal dispino xenglossal tep besal. There are no dancers more agile than these.
Stor reldin pone stor wasgin. They turn and move.
Jadi ir mitwe kwa denje. It seems they have one mind.
Ementi ir juku holaipti tali. It appears to be very easy for them.
Ga rampki ir xolto tesuren launtax tesuren pikipe merflape. I don't believe they can be so beautiful with such a small amount of effort.
Lo poupo stor laihin hifil natkuno ga si. It isn't that they merely perform the same steps.

I've found an error in the Naisek  text: holaipti tali should be holaip(ti)twe ti, agreeing with the dative argument, not the absolutive.

Relay 16 Translation

English Translation of the Naisek Text

Understanding the Virtues

Every person behaves with compassionate concern about failings,
the heart of each person making him or her understand about the virtues of each other person.
They try to behave determinedly with compassionate concern about failings,
the needs of their hearts being very important.
But few persons doubt one virtue;
they understand about it.
I'm not sure.
