First verse of Bury Our Light by The Hellmouth Sunbeams translated to Entesùka
Entesùka [éntêska] is a personal conlang made by me. It doesn't try very hard to be naturalistic as much as it tries to be aesthetic. In this post I'll go over a translation I made of the first verse of [this song]( **English:** ``` we are too small for this home, too quiet feel it burning in your bones now feel your skin crawl as the flames leap higher try to resist their call ``` **Entesùka:** ``` Cefù reotài rir mâkjio Dam, tài kàire Bor care mârào Tsenj Kao, borxu Tsatsae kôikaotang, Tsikare Pom rainjfùo Tsong ``` The word order is a simple, kind of boring SVO. The first letter of a sentence, and the first letter of every noun are capitalized. **Cefù reotài rir mâkjio Dam, tài kàire** literally means "we are too small to this home, too quiet". **Cefù** means **we**. **Tài** means "to be too much of something". Verbs agree with their subject and objects - cefù in this context is human animate, so the verb gets the **rèo** prefix. **Rir** means **small** or **little**. **Mâkjio** is where it gets interesting. **Mâ** is the prefix that marks a verb as a preposition - every verb can be a preposition. **Kjio** is a verb that might seem unfamiliar to an English speaker, it basically means "to happen directed to someone", it's like the English **to** preposition, but it's a verb. **Kàire** means quiet. **Bor care mârào Tsenj** literally means "feel the burning inside your bones". **Bor** means **to feel**, **care** means **to burn**, **rào** means **to be inside something**, and **tseng** means **bones**. **Kao, borxu Tsatsae kôikaotang, Tsikare** means "feel that your skin crawls, fire". **Kao** is a modifier that means **present** or **current**, **xu** is a suffix that means that the object of the verb isn't one of the five noun classes (in this case, it's a content clause). **Tsae** means *skin**, **flesh** or **meat**. **Tang** means **to crawl**, **kao** is its agreement suffix and **kôi** marks it as the verb of a content clause. **Tsikare** means **to burn**. **Pom rainjfùo Tsong** means "try to resist the call", and it's the most straightforward sentence here. **fùo** is the object agreement suffix.
