Re: Help this absolute beginner make a semitic language?

Actually, I have thread where I diachronically go through similar, but essential, processes as Semitic. It is the Taksheyut (Takśāikā) link in my signature.

He started that language after he first joined this board also, and has developed it from basically a sketch to a pretty well developed and interesting conlang.

Help this absolute beginner make a semitic language?

Alright, this will be the first post I ever make on this forum. I am not necessarily new to the concept of conlanging, but I have never seriously attempted to do so before now.
