"pusyolo" is currently the only word in this language with the letter "p". Some other words have "ps", but that's represented by a different letter in the original script.

They are happy. This language is a mess. (I kind of like it.)

(I think I've gone mad. Vowels? What vowels? What is with ⟨2⟩? Did I seriously create a form of chatspeak before I even figured out embedded clauses? Yes. Yes I did.)
Edit: Substituted a string instrument for a French interjection.

It's an agglutinative mess, its noun class system includes "tools, furniture, reddish-orangish things, and the concepts of 'nothing' and 'inferiority'" and "non-ocean-related blueish/purplish things and non-abstract forces of nature and horses" among others, its phonology is painful, its orthography is worse, it has its own chatspeak already, I don't understand my own verbal noun structure, and... it's starting to grow on me.)

what ought it take to create a language as popular as the Great Ones like Esperanto, Klingon, Na'avi, etc., aside from time?


also I came across an idea of using tones or maybe it's pitch accent?

Idea1: Stressed vowels will generally be higher, whereas unstressed vowels will be lower.

Idea2: First syllable will be a medium tone "˧", second syllable will be low tone "˩", and third syllable will be high tone "˥", and syllables after that remain high tone...

what you guys think?

I do not know if I'm pronouncing an alveolar trill...

I usually put my tongue in the [d] position like most guides recommend, then I make small vibrations with the tip of my tongue, though it sounds like i'm making a combination of /ɹ/ and /ʒ/ but it is not in the post-alveolar position of /ʒ/ nor is it a retroflex /ʒ/...
it's also distinctly R-like too.

But it sounds different than other people's /r/s, though it sould kinda like spanish trilled "r"

People have said it looks like cuneiform and people have said it looks like Egyptian, but it's the first time I've seen someone say it looks like Korean. I guess it's because of the SI glyph. Looks like ㅏㅇㅈ.
