Oooh! I like 'malosanokaya-'(poet). I should do an agglutinating language, but I really haven't done enough on Zitwbata(an interesting language involving a kind of consonantal root), but I can't get it to look right. <<< yeah, i like it too. actually, sticking words together makes your conlang look way more interesting. i'm thinking of doing that with tunu. until now i did the indonesian way so the components of compound words are written separately. for instance "dictionary" is "kuni kaci matu" ("book compile words") but i guess that writing it "kunikacimatu" would bless the language with inuktitutish coolness. imaybewrongbutdontyouthinkso? regarding zitwbata, i don't get what's wrong with it. the apostrophe is also used in hebrew books for the schwa and the w is not so weird either (i would have used ë and ü but everyone's got his own fads). however, if it's triconsonant-rooted, why don't you make the t-r tree root of ator into '-t-r and 'ator or something to that effect? (i mean, with something like a aleph or the like?). i wish there were a roman font for an "empty" or a "blank" vowel. Mathias
