This translation challenge was on reddit a little while ago, i figured i would post this over here as it's a pretty neat translation. Anyways, i'm interested in how other conlangs translate "yesterday".

I can’t go back to yesterday, because i was a different person then.

Makǔdorın

Ko košreoso montsǔm yı, usǔm key̌as sǒnuč yı.
[kɤ kɤʃɹɛɤ mɤnt͡sʌm ci, ɯsʌm kɛɟas sɘnɯt͡ʃ ci]
Go capable-NEG yesterday i COP-PAST(PASS) person different i
I can’t go back to yesterday, because i was a different person then.
(lit, i’m not capable of going back to yesterday, i was a different person)


Mändȩs

A i ţläsa u̧ňdao lao ţroaku̧, a äsma antad u nas i ʔikaki ȩţlom los äsma ʔuvo.
[a i θlaːsa ʌndao lao θɹoakʌ a aːsma antad ɯ nas i ʔikaki eθlom los aːsma ʔɯvo]
COP I move-NEG(pres) back EXT-GEN-ABS yesterday, COP that reason SIMP-PRES i different person EXT-ESS-ABS that time
I can’t go back to yesterday, because i was a different person then.
(lit, i’m not capable of moving back to yesterday, the reason is i was a different person at that time)

Please tell me if this violates any board rules.

Go-DUPNEG i yesterday, COP(past)-PAST-PER because i different person
I can’t go back to yesterday, because i was a different person then.
(lit, i can’t go to yesterday, because i was being a different person)

H̭itoymh̭a

(lit, i can’t go into the past, the reasoning is i was different person at that stated time in the past)

Since now I have become different, I cannot arrive at yesterday.

Whoops! I was supposed to have already become different in the past.

I can't see why it should.

I can’t go back to yesterday, because i was a different person then.

"siy parcas" is the word for yesterday; it means literally "before the sun". The prepositional phrase causes the absence of the preposition "pès" that normally has to be used with the verb "vacura" (to go back; to come back; to rise again; to return)

"I can't go back to to yesterday because I was a different person then."

In Itlani:

"Ta yavaspalese vugmishya ra-makayaru var valayit emdál idatá onyavu."
(The past-day return-go not-I can because a different person that-time I was.")

*vug- (as in vugmishya is an intensive prefix signifying to return to a former state or place. The less emphatic "shta-" as in shtamishya could also be used.

A note, if a non ejective consonant is placed between two ejectives the non-ejective is made nasal, but there is no airflow in the mouth.
