ᴱQ. kalma histane “the light fading”
The twelfth line of the Oilima Markirya poem (MC/213). The first word is kalma “light”, followed by the “bare stem” infinitive of the verb hista- “to fade” 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:
kalma hista-ne = “*light fad-ing”
