Specifically *dʱg'ʱes-. Although, I have since made a slight revision to the sound changes, so that word should now be hsés

Um, just realised that hsés ought to mean "yesterday". "Tomorrow" ought to be taþés.

Well, not that it really matters for your conlang, but you probably know that there's some evidence for it meaning both "yesterday" and "tomorrow" in PIE.

40.  My cat is black. Min mau èu nitz

A typical possessive + subject + to be + adjective.

It's also possible to say Min mau nitzic (or nitzighe), literally "my cat blacks", in which the word for "black" is used as a verb, but in that case the meaning is "my cat's colour tends to black".
