Image Ecclesiastical Atili:
First of all, let us assume that you are in a group, and you are asking if the listener wants the entire group to go home.
If you are with only the listener, replace all instances of ohim-salva-un-kón-u with ohim-salva-ún-kon (1+2-walk-LOC-3;CLF(container); /o.xɪm.səl.və.'uŋ.kon/)
If only the listener would be going home, replace them with et-salva-ún-kon (2-walk-LOC-3;CLF(container); /ɛt.səl.və.'uŋ.kon/) (this doesn't work with the last one)

TL; DR: The classic, unassuming question:
E et-vós-o e la házo ohim-salva-un-kón-u?
Q 2-want-3;CLF(abstract) REL to house 1+2-walk-LOC-3;CLF(container)-PL
/e: ɛt.'vo.so e lə.'xa.zo o.xɪm.səl.və.uŋ.'kó.nú/
'Do you want to go home?'

I mark the last two syllables as having a high tone in the IPA (ú, ó), not because they are inherent to the syllable (Atili has no phonemic tone), but because this is one of the indicators that the sentence is a question, the other being the "E" at the beginning of the sentence. If one wanted to express surprise that the listener has indicated a desire to go home, one might use the following construction with a different word order instead:

E e házo latsí-kon ohim-salva-un-kón-u et-vós-o?
Q REL house to-there-CLF(container) 1+2-walk-LOC-3;CLF(container) 2-want-3;CLF(abstract)
/e: e 'xá.zó lət.'si.kon o.xɪm.səl.və.uŋ.'ko.nu ɛt.'vó.só/
'You want to go home?'

If you expected the listener to want to go home, you might say:

Et-vós-o e la házo ohim-salva-un-kón-u, e da?
2-want-3;CLF(abstract) REL to house 1+2-walk-LOC;CLF(container) Q agreement
/ɛt.'vo.so e lə.'xa.zo o.xɪm.səl.və.uŋ.'ko.nu e: dá/
'You want to go home, right?'

And if you yourself wanted to go home, you might say:

I-vós-o e la házo ohim-salva-un-kón-u, e da?
1-want-3;CLF(abstract) REL to house 1+2-walk-LOC;CLF(container) Q agreement
/ɪ.'vo.so e lə.'xa.zo o.xɪm.səl.və.uŋ.'kó.nú e: dá/
'Shall we go home?'

Due to its polysynthetic nature, it is possible to express some sentences with a "single" word, and this is one of the examples that can be expressed with a "single" word.

:con: Ancient Vaal

Sóga omo ò-rába taraş bes?
['søga 'omo ø:-'reba 'taraş bes]
ERG\2sg ABS\home TR.DEF-IRR\go DES Q


The mood of the verb - which would be "rábá" in the realis mood - is irrealis here, indicated by vowel mutation into a pattern of a front vowel followed by back vowel (termed "falling" vowel pattern/"melody") in the root. The irrealis mood here is even required for not one but two reasons, namely the fact that the sentence is a question as well as the use of the desiderative marker "taraş", indicating the desire of the agent/subject.

Otherwise, this sentence is fairly straightforward to render in Ancient Vaal, provided that one is familiar with the usage of the so-called "verbal prefix", which encodes both the transitivity of the verb and the definiteness of the absolutive argument.

In the above sentence, the verbal prefix is "ò" [ø:], signifying firstly that the verb here is transitive: the destination one goes to is a direct object in AV, so "home" in the absolutive case precedes the verb. From that it also follows that "you" must be in the ergative case. Secondly, the verbal prefix here marks the preceding absolutive argument - "home" - as definite, not necessarily because it has been mentioned before, but due to this being an idiomatic expression (use of the verbal prefix marking "omo" as indefinite here would be understood as "a house").
