Example: Xe’la’dimil yunad’het’jet hakim.
(1S-PST-write night-TEMP all)
I wrote during the entire night.

It is not quite true, since the NaNoWriMo started only at midnight. But from midnight until at least 5 am, I was busy writing and got my first 2.4k words. Then I talked with another participant until dawn and then walked home (well, at least to Mülheim, after that, my feet hurt enough to make me ‘cheat’ and take the bus).

Yunad’het is the time when itis dark outside, though of course modern life shifted this definition a bit and astronomers probably have a different one than parents who want their children to be home during the day. The associated adjective has the meaning “at night, nightly, related to the night”.
