Eh, it's a fronted [ʌ], so it's not that different."nut" has /ʌ/, not /ɐ/ (at least in most dialects AFAIK)

So we're supposed to believe that you studied/learned about roughly 6,000 languages?accurate and precise
What does this even mean?
As for the phonology of your language, there are some mistakes in your grammar book:
[flag=]it[/flag] "rosa" has /ɔ/, not /o/
[flag=]en[/flag] "nut" has /ʌ/, not /ɐ/ (at least in most dialects AFAIK)
[flag=]ro[/flag] "bărbat" has /ə/, not /ɐ/

It's hard for me to learn a language without verb conjugation. I remember when I began to study English (I was 11 years old) I couldn't understand how it was possible to say "I go" and "we go".
Anyway, your work is really interesting. Your language has a German-Nilosaharian-Semitic flavour.
See how prepositions are not arbitrary at all and therefore are extremely easy to use. It goes to an extend where two speakers can have different points of view of something, and Rodinian would accept both as long as there is a strong reason to back it up.
(usually of a decision) Based on individual discretion or judgment; not based on any objective distinction, perhaps even made at random.
Derived from mere opinion or preference; not based on the nature of things; hence, capricious, uncertain, varying.
a : existing or coming about seemingly at random or by chance or as a capricious and unreasonable act of will
b : based on or determined by individual preference or convenience rather than by necessity or the intrinsic nature of something

He was proud of his father. He was a good man.
Is the last "he" referring to "his father" or to the first "he"? Rodinian has tools to avoid that.

And why should IE speakers have this privilege? If the aim is to create a truly international language for all people of Earth, then it's quite obvious that this kind of favoritism shouldn't really be allowed.
