Pra’q’ai algunos mots q’tem o prefijho “il” a autros “i”
Why do some words have the prefix “il” and others “i”?

I- for vowels like I-A and I-I but Il- for consonants like Il-F and Il-B check Braussland's factbook

Davietwd wrote:Since we're doing this, here's a random fact of my language:

Unlike most other Slavic languages (but like Bulgarian and Macedonian), we still use the aorist for a simple past tense.
As an example, the verb dielati (to do):

  • 1st singular (I did): jaz dielah

  • 2nd singular (you did): ty diela

  • 3rd singular (he/she/it did): on/ona/ono diela

  • 1st dual (we two did): vie dielahovie

  • 2nd dual (you two did): va dielasta

  • 3rd dual (they two did): ona/onie/onie dielastie

  • 1st plural (we did): my dielahom

  • 2nd plural (you did): vy dielastie

  • 3rd plural (they did): oni/ony/ona dielašă

This is not to be confused with the imperfect tense (I was doing), that would be dielaah, dielaaše, dielaaše, dielaahovie, dielaašeta, dielaašetie, dielaahom, dielaašetie, dielaahő.

This contrasts with the past participle (I have done), this conjugates like an adjective (same across persons within the same number, and conjugates according to gender of the subject):

  • Singular: dielav (m), dielavo (n), dielava (f)

  • Dual: dielava (m), dielavie (n), dielavie (f)

  • Plural: dielavi (m), dielava (n), dielavy (f)

Pra’q’seprar “vos dós” e “t’fez” no plural?

Why separate “you two did” (2nd dual) and “you did” (2nd plural)?

Pra’q’ai algunos mots q’tem o prefijho “il” a autros “i”
Why do some words have the prefix “il” and others “i”?

Usage of "IL" when the word it defines starts with a consonant I.E. "Il-kitara" (the guitar)

Usage of "L" when the word it defines starts with a vowel I.E. "L-isliema" (the peace)

The word it defines starts with an "H" that becomes silent upon meeting a new consonant (histora = pronounced H) "L-histora" (unpronounced H) (the story)

When the previous word ended in a vowel, the definite item is pronounced at the ending of the previous word I.E. "Parlà l-Franciano" (parlal franciano) (he/she/it speaks French).

Words with two consecutive vowels (except H which will always become silent) get modified and an "i" gets placed at the start of the word to facilitate pronunciation (this isn't always observed however if it changes the word's sound too much) I.E. "prudenti" (prudent) "L-iprudenta" (prudence/the prudent person)

Bo my ješče jimam dwvojino čislo.
Because we still have the dual number.

PS: it's an "L" not an "I" hahaha

Factbooks kind of out of date but here's an updated form of the possessive plus to be

They are my parents
Root: Patro
My parents: Patrìe
They are parents: Patrùn
They are my parents: Patrèhùn (I is dropped because it's obvious we're in the possessive so we only need the 1PS "E" to facilitate pronunciation)

We are his/her parents = Patrìhùm/Patrìhùmo

Viriam is my friend = Viria amicèhù

They are not your clothes! = Vestìshùnx!

In my religion my god is good = F'relijionìe bonidiosèhù

You are their teacher = ensenwìnhùs

Maybe not just yet, because some old Cyrillic letters can’t be typed on my phone. Maybe I could make it co-official.

But one of the reasons I wanted to change is so that you guys would stop making memes out of random words.
