More Information

To indicate how far the motion was (how far the person/object moved), make use of the verb lID, meaning something like "travel or move a specified or measurable distance or trajectory." The object of lID is the distance moved or range of motion. So you could say ron SuvwI'; chorgh 'uj(mey) lID "the warrior rolled (haphazardly) for eight ujes" (literally, "the warrior rolled; he/she traveled/moved/traversed eight ujes"). It could also be the other way around: chorgh 'uj(mey) lID SuvwI'; ron "the warrior rolled (haphazardly) for eight ujes" (literally, "the warrior traveled/moved/traversed eight ujes; he/she rolled"). Or ron muD Duj; javmaH lawrI'(mey) lID "the airplane rolled 60." (The semicolons here don't matter. You could also use a period, since, really, they're pairs of sentences.)
