Hello! I'm a HV learner and with my boyfriend we love 'I want my hat back' a children's book by Jon Klassen. I wanted to make him the gift of the book translated to Valyrian as he knows I'm learning it. Just want to know you opinion in my translation of the sentences
I want my hat back - Ñuhon geltītsos amāzigon jaelagan
Translator Note (NT) = there is no word for hat so I used helmet and made it small (gelte - geltītsos)
Have you seen my hat? - Ñuhon geltītsos undertā?
No. I haven't seen your hat - Daor. āoha geltītsos ūndetan daor.
Ok. Thank you anyway - Kony sȳt issa. Kirmvose skoridoso
NT= not sure if skoridoso applies here
No. I haven't seen any hats around here - Daor. Mirri geltītssas kesir ūndetan daor
No. Why are you asking me. I haven't seen it. I haven't seen any hats anywhere. Don't ask me any more questions - Daor. Skoro syt ynot pendō. Nyke ūī ūndetan daor. Nyke mirri geltītssas mirriot ūndetan daor. Ynot tolī pendā daor
NT = Okay this was hard bc there is no word for question in Valyrian, so for the verb I used pendagon (to wonder) and the last sentence I used like 'No more asking me'. The first sentence I used the subjunctive mode
I haven't seen anything all day. I have been trying to climb this rock - Mirros gierē tubī ūndetan daor. Hepton keso dōrot sylun
Would you like me to lift you on top of it? - Aōt indigin bē ūō raqō?
Yes, please - Issa, kostilus
I saw a hat once. It was blue and round - geltītsos meriot undeten. ūja kasta (se) grevenka istas.
NT= I used pluscuanperfect tense bc is a past paster then the past of the question. Other doubt when saying multiple adj you have to put ans (se) or not?
My hat doesn't look like that - Ñuhon geltītsos hae kona ūndetas daor
What is a hat? - Skoroso geltītsos issa?
What is the matter? - Skoroso ñaharrenkoves issa?
NT= Have so many doubts with this one. So there is no word for matter, so I wanted to used wrong 'What is wrong?'. But I couldn't find a word for wrong either. So I did sth which is probably wrong I grabbed the adj harrenka which is right, made it a noun harrenkoves and then added ña- as to make the negative ñaharrenkoves
I have lost my hat. And nobody has seen it - Ñuhon geltītsos ojughan se daorys ūī ūndetas
What does your hat look like? - Skorkydoso aōhon geltītsos hae ūndetas?
NT= I used how instead of what does
It is read and pointy - mele, qana issa
I have seen my hat! - Ñuhon geltītsos ūndetan
You. You stole my hat - Ao. Ao ñuhon geltītsos laodī!
I love my hat - Ñuhon geltītsos raqan
Excuse me. Have you seen a rabbit wearing a hat? - Rytsas! geltītsoso jamīsos huntot ūndetas
No. Why are you asking me. I have't seen him. I haven't seen any rabbits anywhere. I would not eat a rabbit. Don't ask me any more questions - Daor. Skoro syt ynot pendō. Nyke ziry ūndetan daor. Nyke mirre huntī mirriot ūndetan daor. Honī ipradan daor. Ynot tolī pendā daor
NT= I was thinking to make I would not eat a rabbit in aorist, like if it was an universal truth, but idk just an idea
