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. <snip>

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).
