Worked on this today.

The concepts of dreaming and sleeping are interweaved into a higher animate entity, overlapping in meaning. One's sleep or dream is considered to be governed by this higher animate, and thus the inflection is passive.

The verb is slightly irregular tho it does follow the pattern of the similarly working one for the passing of time, so I am not sure entirely of the root shape, but I have a temporary one so far. At least I know the outcome of its actual inflected forms.

aviyas
s/he is sleeping/dreaming[ here/now]
a-w<i>ʲwh-s
CONT-dream<PROX>.V-3-PASS


This animate may be expressed nominally in order to form more poëtic ways of expression:

avıunolluoh
s/he is sleeping/dreaming (≈ s/he is back with Viu*)
a-[w<ə>ʲw-u]-na-ːl<u>-əh
CONT-[dream<NEUT>.V-REL]-LOC-foot<DIST>.V-3
CONT-[viu]-LOC-be<DIST>-3


* The nominalisation is vıu and thus the name of this higher entity.
