This is flat-out wrong. All of it. :P It's now: Ém se dei. The difference? Te is the unstressed form, so tei is used here, and it's ém, not êm, because of compensatory lengthening. The first person pronoun also got replaced with something more logical. And if you want, you can switch up the word order, too. :)

The old-boyko language is "I love you" - Winerajo tay

verb wenerat derived from the old-celtic "veneri"-"strong feeling"
so winerat /wɛrat/ means " love"
suffix pronoun -jo/yɔ:/ means -"i"
taj/tay/ - "you"

Here it goes in Kxarxaros (that of a pirate). The first is the neutral way of saying it and the second one expresses fascination towards the beloved person.

Here are variously formal ways of saying "I love/like you" in Lifanô. A distinguishing feature of very formal Lifanô is that the speaker refers to him- or herself in the third person, so the third version means "You please him/her".

Informal: Nan uk visêt. Нан ук висет. /ˈnan uk ˈvisɛt/

Formal: Vo uk visêt. Вө ук висет. /ˈvo uk ˈvisɛt/

Hyper-Formal: Vo kik visêt. Вө кик висет. /ˈvo kik ˈvisɛt/

EDIT: realized I misspelled and mistranscribed "vo"

An attempt at using the latin alphabet for my conlang.

meilobi'ua senli
[mɛilo̞biwɐ ʃɛnli]

Though you could, with context, make it just 'meilobi'.

Apparently I haven't yet used this thread. Here goes:

Image Konamyôk: Abdīs'-æk gīkæ äts. [ɒbdɨʃʔak gɨka ɶts] (If the relationship is probably not permanent and you're a male.) -æk > ôl'e (if permanent) äts > sēm (if you're a female).
Image Image juḑitase: çehe kalepeļaca. [çeʍe ɢalepel̥aka]

Why are the flags square? Because I like them better that way :P More coming later.
