Vos crevade que de las maledictiones siefte vos devent
causare pena; pesade de cena! Carede de vostros

Devede volere que los emperede mandugare. Digent unus
a lu altru que non vos creasset, que non creasset de
todo. Mai suonhant de cena.

Ellos us vomo sabiente ascoltat.

Soli sont e perviertent la verdade en la falsetuine e
la falsetuine en la verdade. Se sont sene cena,
devereade li dare cena a lu poblu. Crede en un dieu li

Qui est el dieus li pobli? Vê, que molti vómenes
veant: per ellos tuortet las brassas li pobli; per
ellos battet loro gambas; per ellos plûvia caet en
vostra fasse e vostra lâvia sont sigillada e non
podede fablare.

Elle est equí, mai est sene lu poblu; per esto auí que
non crede. Este estúpidi."

created nothing at all. However, they dream about

To them the Wise listens.

They are alone and they wring truth into falsehood and
falsehood into truth. If they are without food, you
ought to give food to the people.

them, he strikes on their legs; by them rain falleth
on your face, and your lips are sealed and you cannot

He is here, however he is without the people:
therefore I know that you believe not. You are

Consonants that are written double are nevertheless
pronounced simple.
If there is no accent sign in the word, stress the
second to last syllable.
e,o are open, short vowels a) when they're accented as
é,ó, b) mostly in -ie-, -uo-. c) if they stand before
two consonant letters or a single voiceless consonant
in a stressed syllable. e is open in all open
unstressed syllables too. Otherwise, e,o are
half-close vowels and, when stressed, long. Vowels

devent causare pena". The second "vos" is in the
dative case.
