I was trying to think about the Aimdulite mood system. I knew I wanted it to be heavy on Epistemic and Evidentiality, but I wasn't sure how to implement the system. Then, on Saturday, for some reason, it clicked!

The Mood marker comes between the Person/Number prefix and the root. The unmarked mood is Alethic. The Marked moods are divided between the Regular moods and the Evidential moods. Regular moods: Imperative: c'ilq This functions as a Hortative in the 1P, as an Optative in the 3P, and as an imperative...

Another Chelm Joke:
A Jew from Chelm bought a new chair for his living room. When he got home, the chair was to large for his door. Another saw him and said "your bedroom window is big enough"
"It's too high up"
"No problem. We break the chair into pieces and throw them through the window!"

Maybe my semantic spread of "coincidence" is larger then yours, but I consider it a coincidence that the same word has two semantic meanings: a technical term for analyzing literature, and an offensive term f...

Re: Aimdulite

The copula/existensial verb has three irregularities: The 3P present and past form (Sâm) has complete suppletion with the 1 and 2P present and past root <Vâdok'> and the future form (C'âjouk'). The second is that the past tense uses the intransitive TAM markers, and the Present uses the Transative. ...
