I think at one point my conlang Ibran was such, but apparently I decided against it, as the final s seems clearly to be retained, at least after consonants: e remijt-nos noistr diuts cónt nosautrs anch noistr deutuérs remetiux E rE"m_jitnOs n9jhtr dZy:ts ko~t nO"zo:trs A~tS n9jhtr d2:twers rEmEtSy:h and forgive-us our debts, how we also our debtors forgive [Wondered about |nos|, but clearly its final |s| was reinforced by |nosautrs|]. -- website: LiveJournal: deviantArt: FrathWiki, a conlang and conculture wiki:
