Hmm, most of these appear as question marks, so these equations do not really help, because it's just ambiguous. I assume it's better on my other machine, but you will probably have to reckon on some letters being mangled for some list members.

I like these!

Did Ayeri have tense? I forget. My langs never seem to have tense, actually, so I'm familiar with this.

I like these! A few details are found in my own conlangs, so I'm looking forward to seeing more in order to compare the realisations. :-) **Henrik
