Taruven Text

Smooth English

"Attempting to control people's behavior through religion always fails.
Do not change another's personality, indeed it is not possible, we need it and life."

Translator's Notes

Comment #1: Lots of new words in this one: džar, khaì, sedann. Some chancy compounds too. That it was so short made it possible to concentrate on finding the new words instead of figuring out the text.

Comment #2: My predecessor's computer-trouble had damaged the torch, so the mini-grammar was very sparse. I therefore used the webpages of Classical Arithide to figure out the grammar.

ë-: negation
ï-: focus, emphasis
-irram: must (mood)
