For the most part, I gave the strange values the nearest English forms. When there was nothing close, I used a random letter.

Two sets of two interchangeable values. That mitigates it at least partially.

From a poem called "anyone lived in a pretty how town": he sang his didn't he danced his did zokanyaxartsho zokyarxartsho zo - 3s kan - to sing (irregular form) nya - negative xar - to do tsho - his zo - 3s kyar - to dance xar - to do tsho - his they sowed their isn’t they reaped their same yazaboryelnyinur yazamiryeltuk ya - 3p zabor - to sow yel - their nyi - negative ur - to be (-n- is just to connect them) ya - 3p zamir - to reap yel - their tuk - same When there is no expressed subject, there has to be a person affix. If there is a person affix, the subject is assumed to be implied. I'm enforcing order on my insanity. The lunatick Chris Wright The Light shines on madmen.
