Moghul conlang (Text-rich)

   This language is a conlanguage, and thus is not real. I am using the
   phonemes and a few of the language rules of a few Iranian/Persian languages,
   but am deriving original words from them.
   References for the phonemes and a few language rules:
   "Punjabi-English English-Punjabi Dictionary" by Dr. K.K. Goswami.
   "Urdu: Dictionary And Phrasebook" by Nicholas Awde.
   "Lonely Planet: Farsi (Persian) Phrasebook: The Language of Iran"
   To avoid any confusion, I'll explain here and now what some of the perhaps
   odd-looking letters represent, since I only know the English alphabet when
   it comes to text-only formats.
   e= and a= are e and a with a line over the vowel.
   d. and r.are those consonants with a . beneath them.
   n. is n with a . overtop of it.
   ' is an apostrophe...though it may be used as an 'ayn.
   " is a glottal the Cockney bo"le.
