In the end I saw the eclipse, although I didn't watch it because I was sleeping while it was on.

(This is close enough to present-day English that it should be understandable. It also does not have an orthography of its own.)

Okay, it's:

I can't figure out how to change the grammar of this English variety.

(Nort was able to figure it out pretty much exactly in IRC without any clues...)

With some further changes, that becomes:

[ˈɛ̀d̥ʑ̥ə ˈfɘ̀ːɡ̊ɐʁˤ ˈɒ́ ˈɒ̀w ˈtʃʰẽ̀ːtʃ d̥ə ˈɡ̊ʁʷĩ̯ɛ̃̀ːmɐʁˤ ɐ ˈd̥ɘ̀s ˈɘ̃̀ːɡ̊ɰəʃ ˈfʁˤæ̌ːjɾi]

"I can figure out how to change the grammar of this English variety" would become:

[ˈɛ̀ɡ̊ɘ ˈfɘ̀ːɡ̊ɐʁˤ ˈɒ́ ˈɒ̀w ˈtʃʰẽ̀ːtʃ d̥ə ˈɡ̊ʁʷĩ̯ɛ̃̀ːmɐʁˤ ɐ ˈd̥ɘ̀s ˈɘ̃̀ːɡ̊ɰəʃ ˈfʁˤæ̌ːjɾi]

Unforunately it is probably not possible as most of what we know about is from some foreigners writing some Egyptian names aside from Coptic.

False oracles probably do not want that discovery. Some of them, anyway. It would ruin their lies.
