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.
