Well, I have a working name for my lang:  Merian H1, the first human language in meria.

Grammer is fairly IE, and I have a Grammar I posted earlier.

Noun roots are much like this:

C(C)(C)(C)

Pronoun Roots go like this:

{h}C

Verb Roots like this:

CC(C)

Adjective roots like this:

VCVCV
CVCVCV

Prepositons like this:

C{'}

Prepositons are latched on to the target noun, the{'} is a glottal stop.
All prefixes are also like that.  The one article, the, is also the same
format.

Cases

There are 4 cases, Nominative, Accusative, Dative and Genitive.

They are signified with the first vowel in a noun:

a- Nominative
i- Accusative
u- dative
o- genitive

Numbers

There are three things to say number, singular, plural and dual.  They are
determined by the second noun (all vowels are between consonants, or at the
start, except in 1 letter nouns, where one is possible at the end.)

o- plural
e- dual
w- singular

If there are two consonants together, then more nouns are added, the third
depending on the case, and fourth on number.

Case in third place

nominative- u
accusative- o
dative- e
posessive- w

Number in fourth place

plural- a
dual- i
singular- u

Verbs

Tense

Tense is also defined by vowels

In the first place:

a or o - present
i or e - past
u or w - future

In the second place, it is the opposite letter to first (ie. A in 1st, O in
2nd)

Imperative:  Imperative sentences have no subject.
Continuous verbs are defined by a certain conjunction in the sentence.


Nouns always start with a vowel, while verbs always start with a consonant.

Adjectives are directly before their noun, Adverbs are exactly like
adjectives, but before verbs.
