I never appreciated Turkish until i heard that one song earlier =). Anyway i think the vowel harmony makes the language interesting.

Ob Conlang Topic: Well, i'm not going to even attempt it because the same thing would most likely happen to me! On a tangent, this second conlang i'm creating has a Japanese orthography to it. Sounds intereting, and the verbs are created by adding suffixes to nouns (like the suffix for the infinitive to make a verb, then you add on the tense suffixes to get the conjugations for tense). Not a very exotic conlang but its more of a diversion from my other. ____________________________________________________________________ "Bailando en el fuego con un gran deseo" - India ____________________________________________________________________
