Human Song

Hello all!
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 future.

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.
