Yes; after all, no natlangs have a negative "particle" instead of negative verbal morphology.
No, that's not what I was implying, I was more or less saying I find a negative particle boring and unadventurous.

Otherwise it looks great !

razlem wrote:"I made him leave" could be
wo me koda lae lo wesea (lit. I action/cause that he go away)
wo me wesea lo (I 'go-away-actioned' him).
"I helped him walk his dog" (like you did a favor for him):
wo me helea lo tongwe gia mwe li tesemo (I helped him via walk with his dog)
or, something like you're physically helping him walk:
wo me helea lae lo gia mwe li tesemo (I helped that he walk with his dog)
Does that make sense?
