BLUMITŠLIPAS DUMATŠLIPIT ['enhanced tense']
SNÄDIT 3 / VERSION 3 In Disfodish the word referring to the tense system is the same as the noun used to refer to temporality or time, pronounced 'dumatshlipit'. The tense system of a language is important because it communicates necessary additional information as to how a given statement is to be experienced. Temporality, is after all, relative; given moments can feel as if they last a century whereas others go past so quickly that we almost don't notice them. It is therefore important that when learning Disfodish you understand the additional information being communicated external to the meanings of the words. This lesson is an illustration of the tense which is known as 'enhanced' or 'elaborated' time. It is represented grammatically by the addition of the prefix DUMAT- which can be translated to infer 'currently in the action of experiencing'. The verb 'zlipet' may mean to move or act, whereas the verb dumatshlipet means 'te be in action' or 'to be experiencing time'. The adjective that describes this tense is formed from the word meaning flower ('blumit'). The suffix - shlipas performs a priamrily grammatical function; it functions to 'enact' the noun, so the word 'blumitshlipas' can also be translated as 'flowery' or 'floral'. It can also be translated as 'enhanced', 'intense' and curiously enough 'sexual'
