I thought about that as well. I'll think about this a little more, try to get more opinions.

Oo, it's so shiny! :mrgreen: I think this'll be a good resource if I want to see what meanings you imagine for the various forms of a root. Plus it looks like there are several roots there that aren't on the website. And I just happened to notice this: "synagogue" is misspelled.

Yeah, well this is just a rough draft :P

I'll need to go through it and add a few more words. Good to know that it works though.

I'm going to go ahead and go through with /tʃ-ʨ/. It's just a more common sound, and would be less similar to /s/.

But I want to change the number system also. Right now it's every second power of 10 that has a separate word. But to make it more familiar for my target audience, I'm changing it to every third power from 1,000.

10 - den
100 - syen
1,000 - syon
10,000 - den-syon
100,000 - syen-syon
1,000,000 - eseon
10,000,000 - den-eseon
100,000,000 - syen-eseon
1,000,000,000 - ospen
...
1,000,000,000,000 - ohanen
...
Quadrillion - lanun

I'm not sure how else to organize it without having it seem unfamiliar. A word for every power is too much, and many conventions already use the third power system.

Have you asked yourself how often are such big numbers used in practice/everyday speech? In my opinion everything over 9000 is not much of an issue.

If it's an international auxiliary language, shouldn't it ideally communicate as large a range of concepts as possible? Large numbers are useful if one realizes that the hypothetical, successful IAL would be used for mathematics, science,and finance.

Sayan energy readers aside, bigger numbers are used quite often, actually:
"The government spent 2 trillion dollars on this program last year."
"That company has a million employees."
"There are 7 billion people on Earth."

Also, I'm bringing back place correlatives. "Kove oyo" was too cumbersome, especially in relative clauses.

Whenever I finish testing. I'm planning a new video right now, in addition to a larger English-Angos dictionary. I don't have a final date yet, but I hope to go into the next phase of testing within a month.

Getting rid of epistemic particles (setine, naetine) and introducing a new root bevis (evidence, proof). The adverb form of it (bevisu) can take the place of setine, and the existing word bisau can replace naetine.

I believe so. If there are any discrepancies, let me know and I'll fix them.

I have to edit that myself. It's on my list of things to do.
