Thanks for sharing this. But I see something strange:

{bIyIntaHvIS bIchul ’e’ Da’aghta’}

Did 'oqranD comment as to why he decided to keep the {-ta'} on the verb of
the sao?

As a side note to this, I find it interesting that it's {bIyIntaHvIS bIchul
’e’ Da’aghta’}, rather than {bIchul ’e’ Da’aghta’ bIyIntaHvIS}, a thing
which shows that the {'e'} of a sao can refer to something preceding the
sentence which it has as an object.
