This is a phrase from a Ukrainian phrasebook I bought.

:eng:
He can touch his nose with his tongue.

:ukr:
Він може торкнутися носа власним язиком
Vin mozhe torknutysya nosa vlasnym yazykom


(That's how it appears in the phrasebook. I'm not sure how to gloss or pronounce it - maybe someone could help me??)

At first, I was not sure about the usefulness of such a phrase. But when I googled it, it received far more hits than 'a man is in the tree', which figured in a recent TC.

Image Waku

Kala etti kia ta nira me tori.

[kala ˈetːi ˈkᵊiːa ta ˈniːɾa mʲeː ˈtoːɾi]

Yerye c’ip yikna telye

While I'm not 100% certain of the pronunciation, the gloss should be accurate.

Just an alternative German translation, which might be less accurate but maybe more natural, IMHO.
:de-hh:

That's an interesting clause. It's asking which of the body parts is incorporated.

他用他的舌头能碰他的鼻子。
Tā yòng tā de shétou néng pèng tā de bízi.

3SG use 3SG GEN tongue can touch 3SG GEN nose
He can touch his nose with his tongue.

Maybe it's clear enough without the possessives:

他用舌头能碰鼻子。
Tā yòng shétou néng pèng bízi.

[tʰa˥ juŋ˥˩ ʂə˨˦tʰɔʊ̯ nəŋ˨˦ pʰəŋ˥˩ pi˨˦t͡sɹ̩]
3SG use tongue can touch nose
He can touch his nose with his tongue.

Did you refer to a certain translation or this translation thread in general?
