After reading part of the "Missing Words" thread, this came to mind. It
seems that a lot of languages have similar words for conjunctions-
mostly short, vowel-rich syllables. I was wondering what your languages
use for conjunctions. I'll start by listing the few I have for
Evíendadhail. These can all be used for joining lists of words or sets
of independant clauses.
Í /i/ 'and'
Ó /um....dunno. English 'long o'/ 'Inclusive or (= and/or)'
Iv /Iv/ 'Exclusive or (= either...or)'
Sau /sau/ 'but'
That's it so far. How do these compare to yours? Similar at all?
