Jovian's Verbs From Hell

Alright, they're not that evil; certainly not as evil as Latin or
Maggel.  ;-)

Anyway, it took me a lot of brain-wracking and
my-more-important-real-life-work-ignoring to finally settle on a system
of conjugations and
tenses.  I've taken some liberties to simplify the system without
falling into the beaten tracks of modern romlangs (seeing as Jovian is
supposed to stem from High Latin rather than Vulgar Latin).

Here follow two examples of present tense verb conjugation; a totally
regular plain-vanilla a-conjugation verb, and an irregular verb to
tickle your freaky sub-ego's interest.  ;-)

More info on all tenses and passive voice (haven't written about the
moods yet) can be obtained on my homepage about the Jovian language:

A-Conj.     candare /k@n"da:r/ "to sing":

            Singular                Plural
     1.P    cando    /"kandA/       candame   /k@n"da:m/
     2.P    candas   /"kand@s/      candaese  /k@n"dajs/
     3.P    canda    /"kand@/       candan    /"kand@n/

            Participle: candante, -ndis  /k@n"dant/

Irregular   haever /"hajv@r/ "to have"

            Singular                Plural
     1.P    hau    /haw/            havime  /h@"vi:m/
     2.P    haese  /hajs/           havise  /h@"vi:s/
     3.P    haefte /hEft/           haene   /hajn/

            Participle: haente, -is /hEnt/

As always, feedback is gratefully welcomed.
