The mail is also on up on my website: Set your browser to UTF-8 and it should work.

Yes. Even more than Germanic languages. "ca-" is near past, "ma-" is past, "va-" is remote past; "pa-" is near future, "se-" is future, "ni-" is remote future.

Ha, but first I need to get behind the word-derivation stage. I'm still not too happy with my changes, there are far too many nasal vowels and the palatal stops don't go nice with everything so that there is some kind of palatal and nasal spreading at the moment in order to be able to pronounce the words :/ Maybe c > k / [+back] etc.? And {+nasal vowel} > {-nasal vowel} when in the same syllable there is already a nasal vowel? I wonder how I can tell Zounds (, it's nifty!!) to do that. Also, the version of Zounds I have (2.2) does not allow s\ and c\ as well as most of the lax vowels.
