A child was panicking. She said to me, "This evening a fox has come to the village." She did not know that the fox had gone underground.
"Does the fox want food, will it look near the hole in the tree, so as not to obstruct its own burrow?" The child said, "I wish he does not eat Thomas."
I asked, "Is Thomas well?"
The child said Thomas often found water at the hole in the tree.
I asked, "Is Thomas a raven?"
The child had the idea that her grandfather's spirit inhabited the raven. Her father's father's name was Thomas. Her grandfather had a wound on his left arm, the raven had a wound on its left wing. This is why the child wished the fox would not eat the raven.

iljena is spoken by the Leyen people, who live on the fourth planet of the Delta Pavonis system. They are crepuscular bipeds with vibrissae all over their bodies. As a result of their sensitivity to air movements, they perceive themselves as being immersed in an active world, and their language reflects this. Every word is a noun and a verb at the same time. The noun consists of a triconsonantal root, which is interdigitated with a vowel pattern representing the verb. Everything is seen as an participant in the overall action of the sentence, playing a particular role. Word order is used to group together related participants, and to indicate the overall flow of the action.
