Soeira:

Shee nuukunda utfå ihplů poil zil shei kind sausha.
sg1.PAT market_place onto in_the_future go for sg1.AG buy food
'I in the future go onto the marker place for I buy some food.'

When glossed Soeira is quite booring.

nuuKuNDa is a place for buying. n is a local suffix.

Here are two possible Image Silvish translations. The first one is less formal and also a more direct rendering of the English. The second one would be more at home in a speech or a newspaper.

Go 1S to market-IDR BEN fetch-GER of food.OBL soon

/tɑ tɐ li hemeniti nuhe tekɑhi ɐ hemede inɐtife/

I'm going to the market for the fetching of food soon.

(The language lacks a proper verb for "to buy" since it's spoken by a society traditionally lacking money, having a more socialistic economy, so you'd have to paraphrase if needed)
Jutean: Hawaiian phonology meets Tagalog, with English ergativity and Mandarin tenselessness added.

Conversationally, this ought to do it:

Sí lí sa glomansat cha öbwensav ba vazh kadiz.
1SG-NOM AUX.FUT INDEF food-ACC DEF market-LOC PTCL buy go
I'm going to go to the market to buy some food.

All the elements are there: the food, the market, the buying, the going. Another interpretation of this sentence could be: "I'll go to buy some food at the market.", but the end result is the same so who's to care?

If one really feels the need to force an interpretation, one could render it thus:

Sí lí cha öbwensav öre sa glomansat ba vazh kadiz.
1SG-NOM AUX.FUT DEF market-LOC in.order-PTCL INDEF food-ACC PTCL buy go
I'm going to go to the market to buy some food.

which makes it establish-an-alibi clear that, "I'll go to the market (and the reason I'll do that is in order) to buy some food."

Charnian:

[me ˈmnæʧaraː lu ˈmergʊʦ pra me ˈalimeːto me məˈkuːp]

1S 1S go-FUT-1S to the-DAT market-DAT for 1S food 1S-REFL 1S buy-SUBJ-1S

Yes, "I buy food" is just me coup alimêto, but "to buy food" is pra me alimêto me me coup. Literally, this says 'to buy food for myself'; to drop the reflexive would be to suggest you were a food-collector, or a buyer for a restaurant or something. They like their reflexives.

MARKET, what is "a market"? Choose the proper option:
subazo - supermarket
xapisga - mall (a building with many fixed stores. This term may be either marketplace or shopping center.)
pladawn - commercial fair (a lot of booths that are temporarily in an outdoor place, such as squares and broad avenues, or in huge room)
tentiha - caravan (a group of traveling traders. The place where they camp becomes a "pladawn" [:D])
English is not my native language. Sorry for any mistakes or lack of knowledge when I discuss this language.

A couple different ways to turn this in Rozwi:



Yui ʔod χrišθitiθ ʔōm χrēšæ za vuduo .
go<PRS>1SG PRP shop<COLL>ACC PRP buy<NMLZ> food-ACC INDEF
This means something along the lines of "I'm going shopping in the market for some food". I may find what I'm looking for, or I may not.

Yui ʔod χrišθitiθ θo χræši za vuduo.
go<PRS>1SG PRP shop<COLL>ACC CNJ buy<SBJV>1SG food-ACC INDEF
"I am going to market to bring back some food" (and I won't leave until I found what I came for). More result-driven.
/θo/ + SBJV is for clauses of result.

Yui ʔod χrišθitiθ wa χrušē za vuduo.
go<PRS>1SG PRP shop<COLL>ACC ADV buy<OPT>1SG food-ACC INDEF
"I'm going to market and I may just get some food". Or a toy. Or some magic beans. Or an ocarina.
The construction with /wa/ + OPT was not as common, used only for volitional clauses with verbs like 'desire', 'hope', 'plan', etc. This construction is similar in meaning to the first.

I think I can also say it like this-

Yui ʔod χrišθitiθ baum za vuduo χrešeqš kēz bieye.
go<PRS>1SG PRP shop<COLL>ACC CNJ food-NOM INDEF buy<FUT.PASS.PTCP> COVRB be<SBJV2>
I'm going to market because some food needs to be bought.
