(Mistake found after end of relay: In the second sentence (Tia...) it wrongly says "et" instead of "han".)

Smooth Translation

Steps against bad feelings of the frost time

One morning of the twelfth month on the other side of the bus stop, (this) scene can be seen.

There, a boy clearly on the way to the school is in front of a garden and a fat red male cate is on his shoulder. The animal can balance (himself) well while the boy tries to shake him down. During this he has more and more panic because he knows that the bus will come soon. There the cat creates disturbance. One time he puts a paw on the fence, but it seems (to be) too cold, so he pulls himself back on the school boy's backpack. As he has made (himself) comfortable, the bus comes.

Finally, the cat's day was surely interesting.

Translation from Da Mätz se Basa

(Some) steps against the winter depression

On a morning in the 12. month on the opposite side of the bus stop you can see this scene.

There is a boy who is obviously on the way to the school in front of a garden's border and has a fat red male cat on the shoulder. The animal can balance itself well while the boy tries to shake it off. During this he looks more and more in panic because he knows that the bus must come very soon. There the male cat disturbs. Once it puts one paw on the fence but seemingly finds it too cold there and so pulls itself back on the pupil's backpack. As it just has made itself comfortable, the school bus comes.

The cat's day surely was interesting after all.


(The full grammar description and an updated Relay text reflecting the current state of the grammar can be found here.)

Sentences have SOV order. All words consist of sound units which are usually made up of CV (consonant-vowel) pairs, though vowel-only or consonant-only units are also possible. Final consonants are tacked onto the preceding unit. Every unit takes the same time to pronounce.
