[< Previous Phrase] Oilima Markirya [Next Phrase >]

The eleventh line of the Oilima Markirya poem (MC/213). The first word is the plural of ráma “wing”, followed by the “bare stem” infinitive of the verb tini- “to shine” as suggested by Gilson, Welden, and Hostetter (PE16/84, notes on line #10 and #11), apparently functioning as either an active-participle or a verbal object.

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

ráma-li tíne = “*wing-(plural) shining”
