(Be careful of the capital "I")
I'm not sure why you have the -pu' suffix on there.
SojwIj nIH SajDaj
You were really close.
The noun suffix -pu': The s at the end of steals doesn't make this the
plural form of steal. nIH is a verb. Only nouns can be made plural.
The verb suffix -pu': nIHpu' refers to a completed act of stealing. It was
completed, or it will be completed. Perfective aspect. Don't worry, I
don't expect you to understand this. I didn't when I first started. We
won't get into this for quite a while.
Now, on a topic of your choice, try a three word sentence, like these that
we've been doing for a while.
