Re-arranging things

Hello everyone,
      I was reading a page on Hiligaynon (A Philippine dialect of Bisayan,
my grandmothers specific dialect, which is on this page: ), and  i found out the verbal
system in it. What I found out was, the system is MUCH easier than in
Tagalog. It doesn't seem to have focuses (I may be wrong), and the aspects
are formed by adding the appropriate affix. So, I decided to tear down
Saalangal's verbal system and use something similar. However, I have kept
the focuses, and the tenses, but simply changed the system, so they are
affixes now. This is instead of the ponderous conjugation I was using
before. Verbs are a bit easier to say now, too.

If the link doesn't work, email me and I'll get you the correct one.

Barry Garcia.
