Hi folks! I just set up an LJ account for my current conlang Siye under the name linguavore - I want to have it ironed out by Labor Day and ChiCon7. Sorry about the IPA-less posts - I deliberately chose an orthography that was easy to type. I'll be posting as the days pass, but the summary of Siye is this: an SOV, mixed ergative language, agglutinative with mild polysynthesis, aspectual and animacy distinctions, a vowel dominance hierarchy, directionals, applicatives, and enough suppletive verb forms to drive a learner insane. The next post will be on nouns and the six grammatical numbers (null, singular, dual, paucal, plural, and pantic).
