  5. "Ñuhi bartos geltose jomīsan."

"Ñuhi bartos geltose jomīsan."

Translation:I am wearing a helmet on my head.

June 23, 2019



Why does this go in the accusative instead of the locative?


It is the nature of the verb. "jomīsan" if translated very standardly translates to "I keep protected". So:

Ñuhi bartos geltose jomīsan. = I keep my head protected with a helmet. » I wear a helmet on my head.

It is that two different languages use different syntax to achieve the same meaning. It happens!
