- Jan 1, 2009Snap - since the Auleri don't actually measure years (which usually are said
to start around the Spring equinox) there's no "New Year's Day" as such,
so one would use the durative of Lamalina "new growth" which is the turning
point of the year:
Elgora lamalinalla gelde (since there is no verb "to be", imperatives in
such a situation are suffixed to the adjective) thus:
el-gora "be (polite) good"
lamalina-lla "from the time of 'new year's day' "
gelde "to/for you all"
Jorayn doesn't really have a concept for year, but one might say
mayaya'kko tiirsa vijerétoòmol ovo'yaliiyotuncar
