My long-heralded new word order (VSO) for Jases Lalal has arrived. Actually,
first invented the language, I intended it to have that sentence structure,
but then it fell under Rihana-ye influence and only just emerged, by decree of
the Jases Lalel Lawaleh
Habav (Fatherland's Language's Scholars' Assembly)--sort of like the French
Academy except they can actually burn people alive--grammar police with
enforcement powers. I have to admit I am not myself fluent in any VSO natlang, so
some of my adaptations (e.g. what to do with infinitives and modifiers) may be
I will therefore be humbly grateful for criticism before the new system
