Thank you for your encouragement! I love hearing good things from
knowledgeable people. I was not very familiar with linguistics when I began
Kioshu (and I'm not much more familiar with it today than I was then), but I
think that what I've come up with is impressive for a first try. I'm working
on a lexicon right now and I'm sure once I have a fairly extensive
vocabulary I'll be able to work the kinks out of Kioshu.
Now, as for annexes, and this is where my lack of knowledge comes into play,
how would postpositional work as opposed to prepositional in Kioshu? In any
language for that matter, for, you see, I think I'm misunderstanding the
meaning...or perhaps not understanding at all. Please explain, if you would,
prepositional and postpositional and possibly give examples?
If I do end up understanding I may see what you mean. This is how I've
developed Kioshu over the years. I've noticed some rule in English or some
other language and asked myself..."How would that work in Kioshu?" Thus, I
have to figure out a new way to say something in my lang!
Thank you very much!
