      No, this is _not_ attested. The only attested forms are:

      _Atarinya tye-meláne_ 'My father, I love thee' (_Lost Road_ p. 61)


      _A yonya inye tye-méla_ 'And I too, my son, I love thee' (ibid.)

      ho bios brachys, he de techne makre.
      Ars longa, vita brevis.
      The lyf so short, the craft so long to lerne.
      "I wish life was not so short," he thought. "Languages take such
      a time, and so do all the things one wants to know about."
