Tus darei audí ont tac tra "to lack", ras te èm mançany erde onde tanede.
I won't create the word for "to lack" today since I'm painting a whole wall.

The color is the darkest shade of Bruguer's Egypt series' ocre natural.

...zha lis govoldush ye Deghure cha qol.
and this.PL.ACC word.PL.ACC 1S Deghuri.POS ADESS speak
...and this sentence is written in Deghuri.

(zha and ye are cognate; Proto-Kharidze had . Amqoli had eʁ > jaʁ > ja > ʒa; Deghuri had irregular loss of the consonant followed by word-initial semivowel ejection.)

Jondurzhel njumrax.
There's not much difference between the two. (But I can't say that in Deghuri yet.)

I don't know what these sentences would look like in Rengni yet, but maybe something like: li kǔdvis à Regni qau. Presumably the grammar would be different though.
