PFV-1SG with what friend-PL and rutabaga-PL write , using language PFV-1SG RES braid , during long.time while 1/IPFV-INF-1SG reliable road , for PFV-HYP-1SG lend word-string-PL NEG under heart-word-PL create/PL 1/IPFV-INF-1SG lack ? mercy-PL

How have I written all manner of things, in this language that I created, for so long without a reliable way to form non-subject-oriented relative clauses? Goodness.

*salysgí-macch abbà* *seosgí Màl ma mach*
s/o-aly-sí mach abbà s/o-sí màl ma mach
1/IPFV-IRR-RFL make 1/IPFV-RFL language instead make

*should be working right now* *conlangs instead*

Alál has a finite attributive verb system for relative clauses that requires the head noun of the clause to be the first argument of the verb, and has a repertoire of voice-changing gymnastics to get it there. Ngäliv Ëra has a mess of movement and phrase-interleaving going on, as usual. And now apparently this 'Undercommon' thing (still need a new workable endonym but this has far outgrown the Pathfinder campaign for which it originated) allows an attributive verb construction in subject-headed clauses (seocha'n-Man the man who saw me), but otherwise requires a resumptive pronoun (Man an er sech the man whom I saw). Huzzah. Sometimes I like to pretend I'm a syntactician but I never took classes past Syntax I in undergrad and now I just do morphophonology and nod my head like I know what's going on whenever people talk about island effects.
Edit: Substituted a string instrument for a French interjection.
