Actually, the Romanian Dat-Gen is more based upon the merger fo the Latin Genitive and Dative.
I think I'll throw a Dative as Genitive construction in my next conlang.

One day, far in the future, Myne site shall be of the callibre, the over-awing greatness, the gimungously complex Almaea of to-day. And, of course, Al-Shandur shall be of similar quality, but much sooner.

Just noticed something in the Cadhinorian section of the Religions: The single god of the elcari (Khemthu-N?r) finds himself made into a minor Cadhinorian godling, Kentun?r, patron of the elcari. Wouldn't it be Centunór? or Centhunór? Even with passing through Barakhinei, ...wait a minute....

Actually, I wasn't thinking in the biological sense. It just seemed to me that the Elcari, who Mark says are conservative language-wise, seem to have held some of the features that Mark said might be part of Eteod?ole. Mark, any thoughts? (Forgot about this one. If you're confused, see ~8 posts abov...

Yes, but Jonathana is only (I think) being unduly influenced by the forever-damned american English Grammarians, who think that anything 'classical' makes no sense. And yet they still subscribe to the double-negative rule. HA!

I was jsut looking over the old Verdurian board, and I found something striking: Most of the differneces in Elkar?l from human languages seem to be stated there as features of Eteod?ole. This, in addition to your statement that the Elkarl languages change only very slowly, made me think 'could the I...

The Twisting Nether

I think that Zomp was in 'Living Dead' mode when he wrote about u's pronounciation, or else he has succumbed to the vyo?is' energies. (I won't get into a discussion of Russian phonemes here-that goes somewhere else, like A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...... (If anyone can name where I go...

hroth

TO: Zomp I'm not sure whoere to put this, but did you know that the Old English word for famous was hroth ? I'm guessing that you didn't, but it could be a meaning switch (afterall, Hroth is about as remote to the general lineage of Almea as you can get! {yes, I realize the're close to the Elcari, b...

This is going to take us a while to digest, as it exceeds even the hints you gave to us prev times. Q: ? Zompist: What lang(s) are next? Xurn??/ T e?? ?inourene? (That's probably going to be a while, mabye even ?ekhnami sooner?)
