Like many others on the List I am not a trained linguist. As to the question
as to how many cases a language should have, I feel that it is entirely a
questions of taste. Among the worlds languages many use no cases at all and
others have many. My constructed languge "Druni" has nine cases. I
experimented with more but found that too ungainly and so retained only the
ones I liked.
The same holds true with verb forms and the shapre and sounds of individual
words. I did what I found pleasing and just kept refining the language until
I was happy with the overall effect.
"Miarayaru u ida bashit latsagese halanis disuyava." (I hope that answered
your question somewhat."
