Congratulate me, for I have ventured into verbs! Once I got going, it got
easier. Canotaea uses a verb structure similar to Spanish, so:
-nd = infinitive stem
-me = 1st pers. sing. pres.
-te = 2nd pers. sing pres.
-se = 3rd pers. sing. pres.
-mese = 1st pers. plural pres.
-tese = 2nd pers. plural pres.
-these = 3rd pers. plural pres.
(A little primitive, I know.) Canotaea only has 2 verbs at present: ond (to
be) and iwynd (to love). It turns out that iwynd loses the y (pronounced
/I/) when conjugated: aet iweme (I love you). That makes it an irregular
Very exited by all this, must keep going.
