…il totí:lt is a partial sentence, meaning ‘…that I was thinking of’.
- i – this has no direct translation into English, this is a ‘helper’ verb (what linguists call an ‘auxiliary’ verb), whose function appears to be just to hold the ending listed in the next item
- -l – in this context, the –l ending means I. There are other words for I, but this –l ending is what you use in this particular structure
- totí:lt – thinking of

As noted above, the ‘auxilary’ verb i does not have any clear meaning, but functions to hold the ending –l, which in this structure is how you say ‘I‘.
