I have a large canoe.

My son asked me how to say "I have a large canoe" in Nevashi. I worked that out, and this morning, I googled the sentence and found this... So how would you say that in your conlang(s)?

Nevashi: Mi gan sanzomo laz go ambo-ambo. (My canoe is very large. :D )
ea-luna: ata la gibuwudu damu. (I have a large canoe.)

Both languages use "tree-boat" for canoe. It's a compound so nice that I used it twice. :lol:

(The son in question just turned 21 this past Friday. How did I get old enough to have a 21 year old offspring?! :shock: )

Hmm, I think that it would come up pretty often,

In Kamakawi that would be:

A ala mono kavi i'i.
/new.sbj. be.at canoe large obj.-1sg./
"I have a big canoe."

A very common expression, indeed. (How else does one woo the ladies?)

:lol: I envision an entirely different metaphor from "blue balls" in Kamakawi ("Come on, baby, you can't cap a volcano!")
