Instead of loving...

A quote from Chabrol's film Merci pour le chocolat.

English: Instead of loving I say "I love you" and they believe me.

Novbasa (reformed): Mesto lyube me bola "Me lyube tu" i on iman me.

Ilóhra

Familial love:
Liha ouhukimnahèðum hèikaki lóluþa, "Ouhkimnallo," ša hihižakšiožèġgi.
[ˈliha ou̯hucimnaçɛðum ˈçɛi̯kaci ˈloluθa | oːu̯cimˈnallo | ʃa çiçiʒacˈʃi̯oʒɛɲɟi]

Instead of loving, I say, "I love you," and they believe me.

Romantic/sexual love:
Liha suġnokimnahèðum hèikaki lóluþa, "Suġnakimnallo," ša hihižakšiožèġgi.
[ˈliha suŋnocimnaçɛðum ˈçɛi̯kaci ˈloluθa | suŋnacimˈnallo | ʃa çiçiʒacˈʃi̯oʒɛɲɟi]

give-PFT-1S love-ACC<1S-GEN>=SBRD-GEN place-LOC HAB~say-1S | love-NOM<1S-GEN>=COP-2S-DAT | and HAB~believe-3P=1S-ACC

Instead of loving, I say, "I love you," and they believe me.


Expressions of love are usually formed with nouns rather than verbs in Ilóhra. Note how the phrases for "I love you", Ouhkimnallo and Suġnakimnallo, both literally translate as "My love is yours."
