I just remembered that i (sorta) did that once. My conlang "Mother
Language" (no native name) consists of one two-word phrase and one name
from an unfinished story i wrote about three years ago called _Blood
Vengeance_. The phrase is _pleknu gamna-zoh_ "Those Who Fell From
Stars", and the name is _agha'shu_ "Monster-Destroyer".
Based on this small corpus, the sounds seem to be:
[ p l E k n u g a m n z A<w> G S ]
(where /A<w>/ is rounded, low, and back)
with possibly underlying / h s j ? /
These have been co-opted into Rokbeigalmki to yeild the words _plek_
"fall", _ool-_ (adj-vrb prefix), _gamnuh_ "star", and _sughel_
"i gave my life to become the person i am right now. was it worth it?"
