Albanian term or phrase: DO T'I TELEFONOSH TËNDES
DO T'I TELEFONOSH TËNDES

A sentence from my textbook:

Unë do t'i telefonoj motrës sime, ti do t'i telefonosh tëndes.

My main problem is with the word “tëndes” – if it were “sates” I'd have no problem at all – the sentence would just mean, “I’ll phone my sister, you’ll phone yours.

Best wishes,
