Implies a one-or-the-other choice between two options.) 2. Do you want a burger or a hot dog? (Rising intonation throughout. Ca...

Skimming over it, it looks pretty good, except "jumped" and "thought" are the past tense versions of "jump" and "think," not present. If you were implying the presence of the word "have" (e.g. "have jumped") then ignore what I said, because "have jumped" is indeed present.

I made a song. It's only 1 minute long, so I might work on it some more.
Orthography with more diacritics, or less diacritics? With more diacritics: Šapa ma hčēdit šaje, ču hapa pye-gûn uje. With less diacritics: Xapa ma hchédit/hcheedit xaje, chu hapa pye-guon uje.

Pronouns Na made some pronouns. Ev are pretty self-explanatory. What do nei think? SG PL 1 na vuo/pa 2 i nei 3 ol ev Vuo is inclusive, and pa is exclusive. Pronouns decline like normal nouns, but without the plural suffix -u (it's unnecessary). I'm also working on translating country names. They're...
I made a ConWorkShop page for Otvei. Hopefully I can figure it out. ( http://conworkshop.info/view_language.php?l=OTI ) Cases I also made a noun declension with cases. I decided on including nominative, accusative, dative, genitive, and prepositional cases. All cases are marked with suffixes, but no...
