Karo xShadowSo= ulx, Thank you for your reply on Lojban! I’m glad to know you h= ere! Many times, I had the same feeling like yours on G= losa. Lojban’s phonology is quite odd for its sourc= ing is different, which is for pure neutralization on its basic=

words, by combining parts of other two original language’s wor= ds among the 6 main languages in the world. As for = its grammar, it is quite over-accurate so that humans a= ren’t accustomed to it. I’ve got the sense earlier that few = men would feel it comfortable. But, I think, its existence is = necessary. My learning Lojban doesn’t mean I put Glosa in t= he second place in my heart. My love to Glosa is still!= I don’t know if you can read Glosa, so I use English = to reply you. I hope you can. Saluta! Li Zhenyu =

i have personnaly studied lojban, and i= find it to be a very bad choice for an auxlang, mostly= because of its grammar. i also never like the phonology si= nce it allows alot of bizarre consonant clusters.

= it is astoundingly alien and takes up way too much memory to learn. = there is no language on this planet that relies solely = on word order like lojban does to differentiate gramati= cal case. the only cases where you see this, this is on= ly used for the nominative and maybe the direct object (as in = english).

however, there is something simila= r you can do that can infact work, it was something= i toyed with while working on my own auxlang. it is a concept = called ‘coverbs’ that do exist in alot of languages. let me give an=


let’s say we had two sentence= s:

i am going to my home and =

i am going from the store

= in a language that used coverbs, there would be no prepostion here. = instead each would use a seperate verb. so these sentences woul= d look something like:

i go-to = home i go-from store

here’s the i= nteresting part: if we wanted to say the sentence “I am going = to my home from the store”, we simple combine the two sentences = together like so:

i go-to h= ome go-from store.

i believe chinese does this,= so maybe the chinese guy where-ever he is could de= tail it more.
