This is how I got started on Aredos (my pseudo-classical IE lang)- I read Cadhinor and decided to have a crack at it. I am incredibly lazy, and hate making up word-roots so I found myself stealing from Proto-Germanic, but principally from PIE. Then I made it more regular and ended up with Aredos. There are still a few Cadhinor borrowings in Aredos (hmm, off the top of my head: moruthom 'carrot' and the shape of the Aredos letter M).

I reckon it looks like Greek or maybe Phrygian. What does hoiu mean, how do you pronounce it, my guess is /hoju:/. Good luck! Dan
