Your transcription is totally inconsistent. You variously give book as keta:b, ketab and kitab. You also have at least one <y> for /j/. Why not just use the normal transcription? I.e. ketâb. Also it's not clear what most of your ungrammatical sentences are supposed to demonstrate, you just give an u...
I know this one might be a bit weird, but how about a Polynesian language like Rapa Nui or Hawaiian? The Rapa Nui are my favourite ancient culture, and I've been trying to learn their language from Internet-based resources with little luck. I would definitely follow along any Malayo-Polynesian lang...

Wi kuld just rit dhi PIY (prutu-indu-yurupian) ruts dhat kurispund tu dha mudarn wurdz. With inflikshans and ivarithing. I think Adarain has struck gold here; not necessarily PIE but a literary language so that we can complain about their spelling insted of ours. As we ar all conlangers, I will put...
There! I finally finished translating the large letter, and it only took three days: [...] Well done! This is really good and I like the backstory to the letter as well. Vrkhazhian has turned into a really nice language with a good setting. If you wanted a recording of it I could have a crack, alth...
