See: ᎤᏃᏝ <-> ᏚᏃᏝ / Unotla vs Dunotla
After additional adjustments.
I can't use 'da-' for motion, not covered in grammar taught so far. I gotta stay in my box, else my students get lost very quickly.
After a quick look in Durbin's, I realized "yells" doesn't have an "it", so I figure you can yell saying something, but you can't yell something. I have tried rewording it to eliminate need for grammar not taught so far. Don't know if it is right or wrong until you all look at it though.
Which do you think would be better story form btw? I am thinking that the second form may sound better.
