Really? That's far from the first interpretation my brain jumps to.

Maybe I'm just used to seeing weird sentences in linguistic examples (and so it doesn't necessarily occur to me to make semantic sense of them, except maybe when they're really short and translated as something that doesn't even sound grammatical in English, like 'seeing go down!'). I mean, my heritage language is the one where for some weird reason, the most common linguistic example people present is 'the kid pinched the elephant'. :P

Just wanted to say that I haven't abandoned the challenge, but my computer's hard drive failed, and writing and formatting text on a tablet takes too long.
I think I understand how comparatives work in Wena.

I've just swapped the distribution of the syllables gwe and zye just because I like me some [ʒ] and using the language was showing me that gwe was a really common syllable.

I'm bumping this because I still want to post something before the thread is pruned but haven't had the time.

Bumping this because Benturi told me he's going to come back to it. :-)

GLOSSES ADDED:


So, here's a bunch of fairly pointless sentences to show some syntax of a new isolating lang I'm working on. Your challenge is to work out what all of the words are. You could either gloss every sentence (pffft!) or just write a word list with a gloss for each word. Please use spoiler tags in case others want to do this after you. Also, don't get too hung up on the "ins" and "ats" ... they're basically just meant to be locatives but it's awkward in English. Just meant to be a bit of silly fun but I'm also curious to see if you can do it and how some things are glossed.

Na i mba.
1s COP house
= I am a house.

Na i de mba.
1s COP DEF.E house
= I am the house.

Lyu nga i mba.
location GEN.1s COP house
= I am in a house.

Lyu nga i de mba.
location GEN.1s COP DEF.E house
= I am in the house.

Lyu ya mba i na.
location GEN house COP 1s
= A house is at me.

Lyu zyi mba i na.
location GEN.DEF.E house COP 1s
= The house is at me.

Na i mo ya mba.
1s COP eat.AG GEN house
= I eat a house.

Na i mo zyi mba.
1s COP eat.AG GEN.DEF.E house
= I eat the house.

Mba i mo nga.
house COP eat.AG GEN.1s
= A house eats me.

De mba i mo nga.
DEF.E house COP eat.AG GEN.1s
= The house eats me.

Mo nga i mba.
eat.AG GEN.1s COP house
= What eats me is a house.

Mo nga i de mba.
eat.AG GEN.1s COP DEF.E house
= What eats me is the house.

Lyu ya mo nga i de mba.
location GEN eat.AG GEN.1s COP DEF.E house
= What eats me is in the house.

Lyu zyi mba i de mo nga.
location GEN.DEF.E house COP DEF.E eat.AG GEN.1s
= The house is in what eats me.

Edit: Swapping lu and lyu.
