Hello,

2 Sentences, First 4 words have a strange syntax combined with words in different languages. Second sentence, in English, included for context.

First thank you for taking the time to read this. I highly regard and value the work of this project which is why I have come to you. Second, I have a personal research query.

I have provided two Sentences -- the first four words have a strange syntax combined with words in different languages. The second sentence is in English, included for context.

I am looking for the origin and meaning of the phrase, “Ohanna desartes, besartes dei. On thee and thine.”

Several words such as ''Ohanna'' & ''Dei'' seem to be quite straight forward. I have included the English as context. As I don't have access to the author, I thought I would go to the worlds #1 rated linguistics program listed on topuniversities.com for 2013 which in turn led me to you.

Again, thank you for your time,

-David Melendez
