Here is a language I have been working on for a while now. It is not yet
complete, I am still creating the root words for it before the actual words are
made. Im looking for some advice to simplify it, or maybe just peoples opinions
on it, considering this is my first language to be made. Maybe you can tell me
how to make it more of a language and less of a code, if indeed it still is a
code. Thanks, and I am open to help others as well.
(AND I only when referring to self. (I, Us, We, Our
A B D E F H J K L M N O P S T U Y Z
*This is the ALPHABET: o v D(ch) e p n J k l z m a r s t w (Ya) Ç(zee)
*To make a word long (last letter of word) you place a c before it.
*To make a word short (last letter of word) you put a c before it (A regular
c is acceptable in placement of a bold c , however only when it
cannot be helped).
*For words that are neither long nor short, but have both forms of letters in them,
italicize the long letters, leave the short letters as are.
* All words that end in e with a Jehan vowel preceding them are silent.
*To make a letter silent underline it, otherwise its heard.
*When any word has two of the following consonants are beside each other a short
a sound is added in between the consonants, with this symbol : V,
Ch, P, N, J, K, L, Z, M, S, T, W, Ç (exceptions: R counts if before any
of the previous consonants ) HOWEVER, if three or more of the previous letters
are beside each other in a word then only the first of those letters and the
last of those letters is pronounced (and spelled), with a single a sound
in-between, instead of having many. IF the letter before one of the previous is
A then the vowel is pronounced as e .
ALL TENSES GO AT BEGINNING OF WORD,
BUT IS SOUNDED OUT AT END OF WORD
*Farthest Future Tense: ~` makes an ee sound.
Closest Future Tense: ~ makes an e sound. (what will happen right
after, or is happening as being said)
*Closest Past Tense: ` makes an um sound. (as in present tense, however the
Jehan people realize an actual present tense cannot exist in ones words. Used
for what happened just before being said, or as being said.)
Farthest Past Tense: `~ makes om sound.
* Tomorrow: ± at the beginning of the word day and a ¥ at the
end. ± makes the sound de and the ¥ makes the sound, Pa.
* Yesterday: ¥ at the beginning of the word, day and a ± at
the end. ¥ makes the sound, Pa and the ± makes the sound
THE FOLLOWING GOES AT END OF WORD:
Plural: f makes sound soft
as English hoo when preceding a consonant, though
sounds hard as English, hoo when preceding a vowel (except in the case of I)
*Singular: r makes an English o sound. As in On
*Maximum amount of something: makes a sed sound
*In all single consonant words with no vowels, an e sound
is placed at the end of the word.
*Conjunction: Lengths based on first word, first one to two (in few exceptions three)
letters of first word, last one to two letters of second and/or third word.
Words pulled together with a _ in-between them (except in conjunction of
words to create a name. Then words not separated by anything at all, but
blended as one word).
-Consonants signs: O(o) V(v) D(d) E(e) P(p) N(n) J(j) I K(k) L(l) Z(z) M(m) A(a) R(r) S(s)

Any consonant before a vowel is long, (exception: before Present tense)
Any consonant before a consonant is long (unless the consonant preceding is V,
Ch, P, N, J, K, L, Z(m), M, R, S, T, or W..(then the consonant after is also
short)) though the consonant after is as well long, with or without a vowel
preceding. (exception: If it is the last letter of the word, or beside the last
letter of the word)
-If there is no letter before or preceding the consonant then it is pronounced as
long. If a letter is before it, then it is the opposite length of the letter
-If the letter before the consonant is V, Ch, P, N, J, K, L, Z(m), M, R, S, T, or
W then the consonant is opposite, in length, of the letter before the previous
one. (Vowels included)
-If the letter before that is also V, Ch, P, N, J, K, L, Z(m), M, R, S, T, or W,

*One tense can only e in a sentence. If a word is past tense, the entire sentence
is past tense, unless interrupted by a ; , in which case the next portion
of the sentence can be present tense. Past tense is always the first portion of
the sentence. The second portion of the sentence must contain at least the
following: Verb followed by a noun. The second portion of the sentence explains
what the subject is doing presently.
EX) He ate the apple; Watching television.

-If the sentence has just one portion, the entire sentence can be either
present or past tense.

The transsexual sign is, µ and it makes a zegn sound. The childs
sign is, ð and it makes a Zet sound.
