ᴱQ. ailissen oilimaisen “upon the last beaches”
The nineteenth phrase (line 23) of the first version of the Oilima Markirya poem (MC/221). The first word is the locative plural of the noun aile “beach” and followed by the adjective oilima, also in locative plural form to agree with its noun.
Decomposition: Broken into its constituent elements, this phrase would be:
ailissen oilimaisen = “*beach-(plural)-upon last-(plural)-upon”
Conceptual Development: This phrase also appeared in the fourth, fifth and sixth drafts, though the number of times it appeared varied, as did the exact form of the locative plurals (OM1d-f: PE16/62, 72, 74).
