Tilon Nevo is my personal language so I am keeping it SVO to make it easy on myself. <<<<<< Wenetaic is (at this stage) little more than a personal language, and it's approximately SOV, I think, though markers for agentivity(?) and patientivity(?) (and the relationship between the two) can be built into any word in a sentance. In fact, that's a cornerstone of the language. English feels soooo primitive and clunky once I get into a good bout of translating :-) Any insights of a more learned nature, based on what little Wenetaic I've posted thusfar, are more than welcome... ************************************************************* This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
