- In my Ennead Future History, I have decided to develop Hegemonic, the
base of most of the others, from French, from the forms 'as for
[person], one [verb], and a denasalized, five-vowel system, and
amwaopal 'I speak'
aeopal 'they (M)'
aelopal 'they (F)'
Makaryan (a =@)
amwa:par 'I speak'
a:par 'they (M)'
a:rapar 'they (F)'
amaupal 'I speak'
aoiupal 'they (M)'
aoilupal 'they (F)'
amvavepal 'I speak'
ayevepal 'they (M)'
ayelvepal 'they (F)'
- This is a rather random thought, but upon reading the initial post,
the thought came to me that rather than messing around with a Germanic
preterite, you could do the whole verb system in the present:
Present indicative: as you have it.
Present subjunctive: however you want.
Future indicative: a Germanic construction, or possibly a Spanishesque
"to be going to do something"
Past indicative: perfect. The descendent of habere and the past
(perfect?) participle of the verb
The subjunctives would be the present subjunctive of whatever
auxiliaries you choose for the past and future plus whatever form of
the verb (participle, infinitive, etc.).
Sorry for this random interruption. I wish I knew enough about the
Germanic languages to make a mix like this. Keep up the good work!
