Proto-Kett:

Ćárj kętui n' nęk, né wláń ćęć.
std. Piárzi kętui ni hnęk, né plám wkiętj.
Before I die, I'm gonna fuck me a fish.

Ich shael rüstkiele die manen dass hürsted all mein freunden, furlast ich mörte, fur die splaeter ist müchvan sen wenn die talhorden laest sein deun resten.

Loosely translated as:

"I will get the men who took advantage of my friends before I die; the splatter will be delightful when their goons lay them down to rest."

*Note*This is Teune. :3

Nortaneous, Where did you get your influence for Proto-Kett? I can't tell if it looks more of an eastern european bent or of a welsh-ish bent... :|

Ok. Read them.

Yes. I deliberately based the language on german. Thus it is very close to german.

You write "German" with small letter. Respect.

Sorry, but I really don't care about capitalizing german. It's a language that I enjoy. Wait a minute... did you mean something else?

Per the rules, glosses, please! These posts don't show me how the language works.

(If you don't know how to gloss, word-by-word "literal" translations can substitute, but I recommend learning some glossing rules--they're like IPA, super-handy.)

PREP before
Is kiadhé used for any other relationships besides temporal precedence? (Or maybe it's used for particular flavors of temporal precedence?)

What sorts of structures require rik, and which do not?
