>>Hmm... Rokbeigalmki also uses the vowels _o_ and _i_ to represent
masculine and feminine: ro.ijh /ro?iZ/ = sibling o-ro.ijh /?oro?iZ/ = brother i-ro.ijh /?iro?iZ/ = sister<< Cool! That's a neat coincidence... :) I plane to use masculine and feminine suffixes on roots often. I already have it on a bunch of family names.
>>also, IZ 'she' and OZ 'he'.<<
She: ki He: ko
>>The prefix for feminine used to be _a-_ but then i realized that i was
just giving in to needless interference from natlangs like Spanish and Hebrew, and i changed it to be more symmetrical and fit the pronoun system better. -Stephen (Steg) "maybe thou shalt find valimar" ~ namárië by j.r.r. tolkien<< I used to have masculine as -(y)áto (the special symbol being a acute), but I found that added at least one unnecessary syllable, so I simplified it to -(y)o. (The y being there if a word ends with a vowel). ===== The Aquamarine Demon "All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry." -Edgar Allan Poe "It ain't the parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand." -Mark Twain __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
