The object prefix ln- is the third person inanimate singular marker. I've translated it here as 'this', but it is literally just 'it'. However, it's likely that it would refer to a previously established 'it' in discourse, so 'this' is a good translation. The root for 'to enjoy' is leegehn, which has been melted to put it in the progressive aspect ('you enjoy' vs 'you are enjoying'). The suffix 'ka' is used to indicate yes/no questions and literally means 'confirm this'. This means that while this is semantically a question, syntactically it is not.

Note that leegehn /li.gɛn/ becomes /liŋ.æn/ when melted, the onset /ŋ/ becomes the coda to the previous syllable. RA does not allow /ŋ/ in an onset, so the syllable boundary moves.
