Re: infix

I'm working over a new project but I'd like to know something:

my words beggin with a consonant and it are always CV, CVC, CVCV, CVCVC
   (C can be a consonant or an affricate, A can be a vowel or a diphtong)

In my conjugation, all the verbs must have /a/, /o/, /E/, or /e/ as first

To turn the verb to past or futur, I simply diphtong that first vowel, it
turns to /U/ on the past and /I/ to futur

/zanog/ = to sleep
/dZ2Su/ = masculine, singular, 1st-person, intransitive-subject, experiencer
       (all pronouns vary on these 5 things)

I sleep = /dZ2Su zanog/
I slept = /dZ2Su zaunog/
I'll sleep = /dZ2Su zainog/

I'd want to know if it is really an infix because I'm not sure that
diphtonging a vowel is called an infix :-|

I prefer to call things by their real name and I don't want to call it an
infix if it is not :-P
