Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Notice: Hi,
I would need the lao version of the following English sentences (with a simplified transcript):
He/she brings the book.
He/she takes the book (away).
He/she brings up this table (on the stairs).
He/she takes/brings this table down (on the stairs).
He/she brings up the food (to my room).
He/she takes the fruits away.
He/she brings the book down (from the first floor).
He/she brings the water up (to my room).

The data is needed because we plan to initiate a IOLING-style competition, therefore the answer has to be validated by the name of a linguist or a verified native speaker.
Thank you!
