I was talking about the English names you gave to grammatical concepts. "Waxing aspect", "afferent voice", etc... When it comes to inventing languages, it seems like you are a poet, while I'm just a poor engineer :(( . As for expressing grammatical concepts in one of my conlangs, except Moten that has extensive grammatical terms for all its grammatical concepts, none of my conlangs have (yet) ways to express grammatical concepts. What I would like is a language which describes its own grammar like Arabic does, with terms like "broken", "sane", "sick", "concave", "hidden", etc... That's beautiful! Christophe.
