"Kēlī jorrāelan" (I love cats). Accusative case. Is this correct?

Thanks in advance.

The correct form for "cats" is kēla. I might also suggest jorrāelin (the aorist, a verb form the course has not yet gotten to).

The collective form (another thing the course has not yet gotten to) of "cats" in this context would be kēliri... not certain if that is better than kēla or not. Since David J. Peterson also loves cats, you might consider asking him directly what combination of kēla/kēliri + jorrāelan/jorrāelin would be best (or maybe something entirely different?): https://dedalvs.tumblr.com/ask

"kēla jorrāelan" or "kēliri jorrāelin" that is the question... Thank you! ;)

He answered!

Unfortunately he said pretty much the same thing I said in terms of the different forms.
