Re: Why my conlangs SUCK!!!

I agree that perfect regularity does make conlangs unrealistic.  That is why
I now regret my tidy system for Rihana-ye with all nouns ending in a, all
relationals in e, all adjectives in i, all verbs in o and all adverbs in u.  As
time has gone on, I have permitted some irregularities to develop--when I
changed the verb forms from prefixes to suffixes, I left the past form (wi-) as
prefix, and while most nouns are still ending in a, a small class of nouns ending
in e has also developed etc.
