Workin' on some stuff.

I've been messing around with my second conlang (the reason I havent
described it, is because i wasn't ever settled on anything I liked). Then
I thought of a system like the tri-consonantal system of Arabic and other
semitic langs, and thought of this plan, which i'm not sure if it is
similar to what semitic langs do or not, but I kind of like it (it's
disgustingly regular , and very rough:)):


Sounds: consonants: b, d, f, g, h, dZ, k, l, m, n, p, r, s, t, v, w, j, z,
tS, S, ts
                 vowels: a, i, u
Roots: CCC (lets take a random group, ZMR for instance)

Basic noun: CaCaCi - zamari
Instrument: CiCiC - zimir
Thing that does what root specifies: iCuCiC - izumir
Adjective: CaCuCi - zamuri
Infinitive: aCiCaC - azimar
reflexive infinitive - CiCuCi - zimuri

Tense endings:

Past -am - azimaram
pres. -ul - azimarul
fut. -ad - azimarad
past participle -ez - azimarez
pres. participle -iv - azimariv
conditional -iya - azimariya
imperative -az -azimaraz

So there we have it. Something I like, and I think is nice sounding.


This ain't a yes, this ain't a no, just do your thang, we'll see how it
