personal lang revisited

If you remember back a while, i said i wanted to do my personal language
something like how the semitic languages handle the words...
triconsonantal roots with vowels added in. However, i wasnt happy because
things were too simple. So, i have another solution, a root gets a certain
vowel pattern depending upon the initial consonant (an artificial idea of
course, but i think it makes it seem less unnatural this way). I think
this also keeps the predicatbility as well:

Group 1. - b, p, m, w,
Group 2. - sh
Group 3. - g, k, h
Group 4. - t, d, n, l, s, z

Groups 2 & 3 just have one sound each. Anyway, i think it's enough to
solve the problem of it being far too regular.

G 1. - CaCiCu - PST - pasitu
G 2. - CiCCa - ShRD - shirda
G 3. - CuCiCi - KHY - kuhuyi
G 4. - CaCaCu - LSK - lasaku

So, there is my solution to the overly regularness of the original idea.
