Vyh. simply adds -af- to the verbal stem, and any
suffixes (eg, -oo, expressing "hope") go after the
negation indicator. Of course, prefixes are not
luuln "I think"
luulnaf "I don't think"
luuloo "may s/he think"
luulafoo "may s/he not think"
rrhaux'yyitauxl "s/he arrived"
rrhaux'yyitauxlaf "s/he didn't arrived"
gkja:a:a: "I hope s/he dances"
gkja:afoo "I hope s/he doesn't dance"

Now, this is quite simple but creative! I like it in
theory; but in actuality, there's any icky feeling for
me with saying "high-high" to mean "low"...

gkjoe = eat
gkjoeaf = not eat
yyigkjoe = over-eat
ppe = vomit (for any reason)
rrhuuo = puke (ie, a bit vulgar for "vomit")
yyirrhuuo = spew (vomit everyone, uncontrollably)
yyigkjoeppe = throw up (due to over-eating)
ooegkjoe = refrain from eating (for any reason)
ooegkjoeppe = throw up (due to lack of food)
hyvooegkjoe = fast (at one's own volition)
hyvyyigkjoe = binge (ie, over-eat at one's volition)
Note, the following are each one character in Vyh:
oe [sounds like a schwa],
rrh [a thrilled r with a slight huff at the end],
uu [long /u/],
yy [long /Y/],
kj [/j/ but which is /k:j/ is preceded by g]
aux [like Danish o/slash]
