"How to Cook Meat Wraps"
(I) Preparation: Gather these ingredients.
- deer meat
- wheat flour
- a bowl for water
- olive oil
- white pepper
- a spice made from Fructus Schisandrae
- lemon extract
- Cut the meat, onion and garlic into small chunks.
- Mix the meat, olive oil, onion, white pepper, Fructus Schisandrae spice and lemon extract together in a mixing bowl.
(III) To Make the Wrappers
- Mix the wheat flour, water, olive oil and salt together.
- Form little balls out of these ingredients.
(IV) To Make the Meat Wraps
- Spoon stuffing onto the wrappers in a circular fashion, and pinch the ends together.
- Put the wraps on a greased tray, and cook them over hot coals.
- When the wraps turn gold, remove them from the fire: This is when they're at their tastiest!
(V) Some Notes
If you wish, you may swap deer meat with another type of
meat. Wolf meat, rabbit meat, or a portabella mushroom works well.
Additionally, green onion may be swapped for the Fructus Schisandrae spice.

I'm going to kind of list things that will be important.
Everything else can be gleaned from the website.
Word order is SOV. Adjectives precede nouns; adverbs directly precede
verbs (unless they're adverbs of time, in which case they can come at
the beginning of the sentence); possessors precede possessees; subjects
(and objects) can be omitted if they're understood, or unimportant.
Adjectives precede the nouns they modify. They agree with the
nouns in case to a certain degree. Adjectives have special adjectival
cases (detailed in the adjectives section of the website), two of which
appear in this text. The first is the nominative adjectival case.
Any adjective that modifies a noun in the nominative is in the
nominative adjectival case. There is no ending for this case. The
other case is the nonnominative case. Any time an adjective modifies
a noun that's in any other case than the nominative it's put into the
nonnominative case. The nonnominative case is marked with a final /-a/
for adjectives that end in a consonant, and by nothing for adjectives
that end in a vowel.
The infinitive ending of a verb (either /-l/, /-n/, /-al/, /-el/, /-an/ or
can be glossed as a noun, or "to x". It serves both functions, in most
This entire text is in the unmarked tense. This tense serves a variety
of functions, including: (i) simple present; (ii) narrative past/future;
(iii) imperative; (iv) impersonal. When it comes to translating your text,
you need not be confined to the present; choose whichever tense (or
voice) fits best. [I add "voice", because there's often an assumed subject,
or none at all, so some sentences may be best translated as passive,
even though they're active sentences.]
The object argument of the verb /mek/, "to be", takes the adverbial
adjectival case (if the object is an adjective).
Since stress isn't marked, there's no marked difference between a
noun and its corresponding nominal adjective. Use your best judgment.
