[Jeff: You've already seen this, sorry about that.]
I'm devising a language of a relatively sophisticated but
untechnological jungle people. The phonology is supposed to
be non-trivial (I like them that way), but well pronounceable
and not unaesthetic. Furthermore, I've tried to give it a
certain "jungly" feel.
### I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions about the
phonology itself and its presentation. ###
As for the title phrase:
|¿Naro cel ei nau cepoa sia?|
none see:F it course discuss:N 1sg
"Has nobody seen my discussion thread?"
...where F and N designate finite and non-finite verb forms.
|Nau| means "course (of a river), case (possible outcome,
option" and reflects the language's propensity to borrowing
idioms from its jungle environment.

BTW: A few days ago, I posted an announcement of this new language
to four independent conlanging discussion lists, including conlang.
I received a single answer. To rule out the possibility that it
simply got overlooked, maybe because of a boring thread title, I've
now reposted it with a teaser of the phonology right in the title.
This will be the only attempt to bump the subject, so no need to
fear for spamming.
