Well, I've made some changes to Okaikiar.
1. It's sprouted two new vowels: y = /y/ and ø = /2/ = /,
represented in the native writing system by shapes that
look like those of u and o plus a small horizontal mark
indicating the umlaut.
2. The singular/plural vowel change has become regular umlaut.
3. The regular verb conjugation now combines person, number, and mood
in a single set of suffixes instead of being completely
4. There's a new subjunctive mood.
5. There's an explicit progressive aspect, instead of just
"unspecified" and "complete".
6. The verbs "to be", "to go", and a few other common verbs are
now irregular, although I haven't described them on the web
Anyway, details are at http://thereeds.org/~mark/conlang/okaikiar.
