This endearing little critter lurks around the back of my collinguistic organ. It has undergone a revival due to its use in a correligion I'm working on. The name I'll give for it is Vekhomos (lit. 'we speak'). Although its phonetic changes are adhoc, abeit consistant as much as I have made it, it seems to be a satem language (k > s). The original script it is written in is Aramaic, hence q used before back vowels in transliteration instead of k, and a system of sandhi based on Sanskrit. (final stops become voiced before other voiced sounds, collapse of final s and r, etc.) In comprehension, Vekhomos seems to lie somewhere between Callistic and Telarian. - andrew.
