(snip sketch) Actually, what you came up with is pretty different from what I'm talking about. You've largely kept the same or similar phonological form of roots, and changed the affixes and syntax and such. My project has exactly the same grammar (both morphology and syntax) as English, but every word and affix has a new phonological form, which is very different from the original form, but can be systematically derived from it. Mine is sort of like a spoken cipher, where instead of substituting one letter for another, you substitute one phoneme for another, with the additional complication that, in order to keep it reasonably pronounceable, sounds are swapped with others of similar manner of articulation. ===== I'm revolting agenst standerd Inglish spelling.
