Interesting stuff. There's too much to comment on in one post, but I did notice the resemblance to Indo-European, with words like "rűűðis" for "red", and "ɱirũesc̆e ğenűesc̆e" meaning "men and women". I happened to run across "ɱiɱe̋res" and thought it looked somehow familar -- then I remembered a recent Google search and ran across this: Is there a regular correspondence between Senyecan and PIE sounds, or is the situation more complicated?
