This language looks like a somewhat worn-down Søkkli.

(Note the lack of a word to refer to Sèćli's protolanguage.)

The main thing that is reduced is the number of morphemes for verb agreement and the elaborateness of the nominal declension, which though is still elaborate.

I am not sure why I did not have "count", but my lack of "still" was due to my thinking that "now.past" would work for it, before I realized I might want to try to use it in the past.

«Nohenyú»-lené oshella «still»-le íroé Lilitika nai. ‹Hemi otalita›-lené dzheloé. «Hemi»-le kadushi mítshístagha voé híyadis.
Lilitika has "nohenéú" for "still." It means 'even now.' 'Even' is an important word also.

Ekla yestalyú «ekla»-lené rezunti tshitsagha oshagha raftekrízoe.
But oftentimes "but" is the correct word for translating.
