Whee.  I've shown some of yall bits and pieces of yon text here, but now
I've finished it and am unleashing it on an unsuspecting world.

Actually, this is kind of an "Intermediate stage" language.  The *real*
nightmarish monstrosity is yet to come.

I used the NCV as source text, and the grammar's changed very little.  That
and more drastic sound changes (and better word choice... 'goram' in the
last line keeps throwing me off) will probably happen in yon later stages.
I am unjustly proud of the orthography, as even with all those messy vowels
I didn't have to resort to a single diacritic.  (Y'all know how my other
langs have tended to look like spikefields of acuteys &c.)
