Just two questions

Hi all!

I made up a new lang on the train yesterday, and there are two points I had questions.
First I thought to simply leave out the voice [k] (turned to [g] some time ago).
What do you think, could it work, when there are consonant clusters like -gt-
or -gp- where it's normal to pronounce g more like [k]????
The other: I made up a system for the noun suffixes: There is always one suffix
for the ideas of "there" or "under" or "here" or "in", and the case would show,
if it's "from there", "to there", or "there"... Examples: daundals
(house+"in"+GEN) -> "into the house" or daundalan (house+"in"+DAT) -> "in the
house" and also - there are opposites to build up - daundalt (house+"in"+ACC)
-> "out from the inner of the house" = daunvas (house+"out"+GEN) -> "into the
out of the house". That I think is good for literature first of all, many ways
to express something, but maybe a language could spare this doublings....
Any comment???

I lúme vin deí asi mosted!
May Heaven give you its grace!
