After the lengthy debate last time I posted about Terkunan, I fixed
and revised the language and the web site:
- I (finally!) dropped the inclusive/exclusive distinction in
1st person pronouns. The pronouns are now 'mi' vs. 'nos'.
'Our father' is now 'nos patre' instead of *'mis patre'.
Sounds much better, I admit.
This was one of the first things criticised on this list, and I
finally managed to convince myself that I should not include this
distinction in Terkunan.
- The verbs are now explained and derived from frequentatives as
Ray suggested. Thanks for noting that it reads like a more
plausible construction that way.
- Some of the proposed historical explanations are given
written down in history boxes.
- And, tah-daaah!, something to play with: and interactive script
to play with GMP, verb and noun generators:
Please report bugs and oddities.
