Mi drom.
[miː dro̞m]
1s dream
"I dream", "I'm dreaming", "I dreamt", etc.

The above expression can be interpreted in different tenses or aspects, depending on the context. To be precis, one could say, for instance:

Mi lig drom
[miː lig dro̞m]
1s lie dream
"I lie dreaming"

The two cases here differ only in whether the speaker has finished their dream or not.

/ɐ s̠ɒ̃ʊ̃n‿ɐ dreː kɐ mɪn'sŏɲ/
a soun a_drě_ca a m insógn
1SG be.1SG PROGR 1SG REFL.1SG dream.1SG

Emilian conveys the meaning of dreaming through a reflexive verb (insugnêres), quite curiously. Italian does not (it just uses "Sto sognando" as some of you already pointed out), and also, I have no idea where that in- prefix came from.

Jä ilbirüi.
/jε 'ilbiry.i/
jä ilbir-ui
PROGR dream-1SG

The <ui> ending changes to <üi> here, following the rules of vowel harmony. Curiously though, <ui> itself - used on its own as a 1SG subject pronoun - does not respect the rules of vowel harmony, as it features a back rounded vowel together with a front unrounded vowel. I figured I'd need exceptions to make the language more interesting...
