Definitely free VSO (theoretically free but mostly VSO) I have some tries for a VOS language but I changed it to VSO too. The matter is, that I love this order so much because it has some alien favour since most in most European languages, the subject is the first component of the sentence. And I am definitely bored with SOV and SVO languages. But for me, a language woith subject before object is too odd thus remains the VSO order. And Egyptian is also VSO and my Long Wer is VSO for this reason! -- Mau Ábrahám Zsófia alias Mau Rauszer | | | "Yú lawe ta mau yibali taqe yamissi qi u neb dagu tawiy iq." -- Kipling
