Commentary

Philological commentary

This sentence is a bit peculiar. This is the first and only attestation of tallāwśke. Strangely, there also is a tallāñciśke in THT 273 a5. I assume that the sentence means something like 'I happily take up this burden for you'. For 'I wish you good fortune', cf. PK NS 101 a3.
n1Maybe a diminutive form of tallāw?
