I just had to comment on an observation I found interesting -- two different conlangs with a word almost identical in both: The word for "make" in Evíendadhail is "nend", and the imperative marker "-e" makes the word "nende". The word for "make" in Aspele (my conlang) is "nel", but when the third person marker and the imperative marker are attached, the consonants assimilate and the word becomes "nendes".
