Manava is now a root based language.

As usual I have not been all that active ’round these parts. Got into WoW for a bit and a few other diversions. I did during that time manage to convert my language to a root based language. So, nearly all words now have a 3 letter consonant root. Such as M-N-V, which is the root for “word”, of which the word “Manava” is derived.

The grammar is based upon modification or addition of the root along with its vowelling. M-N-V at base is just Manav, to make it a verb in present tense it would be Manavma, past tense would be Manavmu, and future would be Minavma. Making it an adjective would be Amnav.

That is about as far as I have gotten. I am in the process of making more words to use as I further construct my grammar. I had about 200 words before, I am now down to less than half. It doesn’t take long to make words I just need to sit down and do it. I use a generator to generate words, but I still hand pick what I want for each word.

Well, that’s all for now folks. I intend to put out much more content once I actually make my move to Saudi. As of now my life isn’t all that interesting. I am a man in grad school who likes to construct language. In the future I will be a man out of grad school who likes to construct language, in the desert.
