Hmm... now that you mention it... ;) No, seriously. I see what
you mean by repetitious. But I think that's only because I don't
know which words to stress. Could you send a interlinear
translation to the list? (Of all three langs, please.)
I mean, if the stress is for instance:=20
(much stress is capital letters, ordinary is ')
'toma ILom [pause] 'delye TERyek 'arya.
like: YOUR lang, it should REAlly be HERE!
...then it sounds kinda nice. Don't you think? :)

No need to be modest. :) What I've seen so far seems interesting.
I mean, no nouns! That's kinda spectacular, init? And they're
*your own* langs. Afaik, every conlang is interesting, because
it seems that every conlang has its own way of dealing with things.
I bet you can find at least one thing in every conlang that no
other conlanger has in his/her conlang.
