Inspired by ixals’ post and the season in general:
I'm happy to hear I could inspire someone! [:D] But the season was the reason I created those two words for Cissian!

Have been neglecting verbs so I decided to make some vowel-stem verbs which probably come from earlier causative somehow.

Civmu-
To send (a thing)

Nanti-
To injure

Zagva-
To sink (trans.)

I think vowel-stem verbs will behave differently when it comes to the past tense as well. Instead of the usual add lengthened vowel to stem and reduce main stem vowel, the 'causative' suffix will be 'separated' and receive the lengthened vowel:

civmu- > civ-mu- > civ-ómu- (instead of ícvĭmu)

Shil hitsála civómuḥ 's/he sent him/her a flower'

This makes some parts of Qutrussán seem pseudo-nonconcatenative, but it probably hints to an earlier past/perfective marker which was a long vowel of some sort, and maybe that the relic of the causative suffixes were full verbs.

They're not, but my religion teaches that all natlangs have a false cognate with Hebrew, and a language that doesn't will never succeed, so I purposefully incorporate Hebrew words into my conlangs so they will be "legitimate languages" in my religion's reckoning.

False Cognates, like Proto-Germanic *Sebun and Hebrew [ʃɛβaʕ] ([β] being an allophone of /b/), Tamil /ʋa:/ and Hebrew /ba/ "To come", Mongolian /ax/ and Hebrew /aħ/ "brother".You have to understand that we believe that there are many "Lost" Hebrew words that are only hinted to in existing texts, like /pat/, "two" which is identified as "in [an] African language" and resembles Proto-Bantu *bàdẹ́ "two".
However, the board discourages the discussion of natreligions; I only brought it up to answer Tuyono's question and to show its influence on my conlangs.

I mean... Not to get too religious-y here but, isn't that just an unfalsifiable claim? I mean any word (with a broad enough brush) could be thought of as related to a distantly/tangentially related concept if they so happen to share a sound or three!
