1st email. Introducing Bakoyu: Babel text

From:Heather Rice <florarroz@...>

Hello all!  I’m sort of a conlang-list-lurker, but I
thought I would pop out this time just to introduce my
new (sort of) conlang, Bakoyu, on the celebration day
marking its 1,000th word.  Thought I would include the
first translation of the babel text, little summary of
the languge and maybe even a song I wrote, if I find
the space.  Also thought I would give a little summary
of the language.  I think I will do this in separate
emails.  Here it goes-

Babel text (I will try this interlinear, sorry if it
doesn’t come out right after I send the email)
