[snip] K00'i! What coincidence... you asked just the right person here :-) My conlang uses vowel shifting to show case. (It also use consonant shifts to show gender, but I won't get into that here.) Here's an example: juli'r "house", "dwelling place" Originative: jul0'r [julAr] "from the house", "out of the house" Receptive: jolu'r [jolur] "to/into the house" Instrumental: jula'r [jular] "by means of the house" Conveyant: jwl3'r [ju"lV"r] "the house (in motion)" Locative: juli'r [julir] "in the house", "about the house" (Pronunciation given in Kirsch IPA transcription.)
