What does this Occitan phrase exactly mean: "S'i pòt veire un donjon carrat". It is describing the architecture of a castle allegedly build in the so-called Savoyard style in Southern French. Here is my own, probably terrible, try: "S'i [it?] pòt [ledge? is] seeing a square keep".

    A square keep can be seen there.

    S' (se before vowel): impersonal pronoun, roughly Eng it).
    i (Cat hi, Fr y): there.
    pòt (Cat pot, Fr peut): can, 3rd person.
    veire (Cat veure; FR voir): see.
