Having more or less finished my semester, I can more
fully dive into this project.
I wanted to tell you more about my language. I think
I said before it has Cherokee, French, and English as
its basis. I am also studying to be a logician, so
some of those elements slip in, as well. Nearly all
words develop from two-syllable roots, and nearly all
sentences (VSO) are three words long. A typical
sentence would be:
VERB: pronoun affix + root + tense/mood affix
SUBJECT: root + subject marker
OBJECT: root + postpositional affix
There are, of course, other indicators for negation,
reflexivity, modifiers, etc. I will address those in
The phonology is a streamlined form of Cherokee. I
will discuss that later. There is no tonality, but
stress is very important, as I have only about 60
syllables to work with. I am just beginning to
generate my vocabulary.
I must run soon, but I would appreciate any response
you might have. Just slip some variation of "Human
Song" into the subject so I can get straight to it.
I am excited to get involved in this group.
