Ny allama bos blâmys pàn esoma ow redya Desky Kernûak wàr wiasva an Gussel.
Hag yma hebma wàr an wiasva kefrÿs:

Pandra ew hedna? Crogan lâz, lagas rooz.
Emava tedna, scogan mez, tabm booz.
Deaw baw derakta terri, trehi,
Ganow ageri, tebri kîg.

While Richard was alive, we used his materials but he ignored our agreed practice and collective decisions as teachers (Bernard D, Frances B, Gus W, Dicky Mint, Andrew C, me...). What you say about spelling is correct but should be in the past tense.
