⚠️ᴱQ. culucalmalínen “with golden lights”

[< Previous Phrase] Oilima Markirya (First Version) [Next Phrase >]

The eighth phrase of the first version of the Oilima Markirya poem (MC/220). It is a compound word, a combination of kulu “gold” and the instrumental plural form of kalma “light”.

Decomposition: Broken into its constituent elements, this phrase would be:

kulu-kalma-lí-nen = “*gold-light-(plural)-with”

Conceptual Development: This phrase appeared in the second draft of the poem, and aside from the variant Finnish-like spellings of the fifth draft (OM1e: PE16/72), it remained the same thereafter.
