Help you to write a poster? To make a sentence? To analyse its morphology? To get an anagram out of it?

Can you please state your question so that we can help you?

In the meantime, I'll give you a suggestion: its correct spelling is likely to be "ceñirse". N and ÿ are different letters, and you won't find "cenirse" in any decent dictionary, because it is "ceñirse". Similarly, you won't find "vhere" in any dictionary, because it is "where", with W, and not V.
