It only snows in the north, but it rains everywhere.

Ikāezin

Kalqēbrandāksilam Fāini-Kirātsir Nēvok Gāokersīlim Rāeletsīr
/kalque:branda:ksilam fa:ini kiɾa:tsiɾ ne:vok ga:okersi:lim ra:eletsi:ɾ/
kal-qe-bran-dak-sil-am fai-ni ki-rat-sir ne-vok gao-ker-sil-im rae-let-sir
northern provinces-ACC.PLURAL only-ADV snow-IMPERS.IND but-CONJ everywhere-INDEF.PR.ACC.PLURAL rain-IMPERS.IND
At the northern provinces it only snows, but everywhere (in all provinces) it rains

"-sir" is an impersonal suffix used only with verbs like "rain", "snow", etc. which in Ikāezin are not only intransitive but subject-less.
"Provinces" is not repeated, as the speakers would understand that "everywhere" is referring to them. However, in a formal setting or in formal writing form, provinces would be repeated, and added to the indefinite pronoun as follows: "Gāokerbrandāksilam".
