I might as well give it a try in Wenedyk. This one is not so difficult:
KARP DZIEJ! KARP NOC!
Fortunately there are no special characters involved in this little sentence,
so the ASCII version corresponds with the real one.
karpier < L. carpere
dziej < L. die(m) < dies
noc < L. nocte(m) < nox

I might consider such a possibility, too.

Why not? It happens in Dutch, too:
"Ik ga je vermoorden" = "I'm gonna kill you"
The future tense in Megza, one of my other languages, works the same.
I won't use in Wenedyk, because it preserves both Latin forms, the futurum and
the futurum exactum.
Thank you for all the information. I have one last request: the numerals (well,
at least those from 1 through 10). I've always had some special interest in the
subject, and already in my childhood I started collecting them (the same thing
as Mark Rosenfelder, I guess, but his collection is much more impressive).
