This is the Tirelat text from the sixth Conlang list translation relay. For more information about the relay (organized by Nik Taylor in June 2002), see the web site.

An audio sample of the original Tirelat version is available. The language has changed a bit since then and doesn't match the current text exactly.

Tĕlihžałazan vjaki taj mikvidu žu žaŕ?

Ispa tĕtexaban my ñaj mikvidu myn metti fał.
Jĕtuhłan sy lih mikvidu za tadru mikvidu.
Sy ŕahva mikvidu jĕtuhłan sy lihma ŕadeky,
ispa tiskini jĕŕahvałan vë rizi u rihva.
Sy ŕahvabakavit jĕtuhłan sy xojda ŕadeky, kavahl šmaj jĕtuhn.
Sy xojda ŕadeky jĕtuhłan sy make mikvidu ċy sy kaziñi mikvidu.
Kejla dihžu jĕkattałan za kavi rihva.
Sy ñajma mikvidu ispa jĕtuhłakan sy mikvidu.
Ža ġumini jĕlihžabaz mih da, javi jĕlihžakułan sih.
Jĕtašałan maj sezaniat ba tadru numi.
