The Animal Trainers

The next Empire you make contact with has been excitedly discussing a pair of things called utqunxe and eterqoye, but appears to have little concern for anything else. You’re trying to convince them to reestablish communications with the other civilizations, but your efforts so far have proven not very effective. What does this Empire need to do?

P.S. Our Galactic Nations contact has told us that some of your English puzzle answers will be useful here, as well as their translations. Additionally, you will need to use some things you've learned about the language through the various artifacts. In particular, there is a certain language feature found in the Collage artifact (among others) that might prove useful at some point.
