I actually don't even like the term "constructed language".  It sounds
klunky.  I like the term "language".  It serves me well.  Anyway, my latest
language makes only a patient/agent distinction, and has different verb

did it, and I forgot what it was...  Something like "I'm drunk now, but in
the morning when I'm sober you'll still be ugly"?  I think I got tripped
because, for some odd reason, I never came up with a word for "ugly" in my
big language.  Oh well.  If someone gets another one started, I promise to do
