I think that was a typo, I sometimes forget that I have to press the "y" key to get an "i" and that the regular "i" key will give me an  "ɪ."

I do that all the time. scarf

Quote (NorWin)
Still, this last sentence felt easier to write so I suppose I'm getting there!

Woohoo!

I realised that I had gone a little off-topic in the sense that my sentences aren't really about introducing oneself, so I thought "I'll write something to introduce my brother" and another doubt/question sprang to my mind: 
What about double possessives? Does the middle noun take both the owner and owned suffixes? (And is there an order for these, like owned first and owner after it?) 

e.g. The woman's friend's daughter -> uθ dodagna spɛdigɪlna ðɐnuwowɪl ?

Recycling topics is always good.

Quote (NorWin)
uθ dodagna spɛdigɪlna ðɐnuwowɪl

Considering you mixed up -ɪl and -na, I'd say it's a good start. :P

uθ - the
dodagowɪl - woman's
spɛdignaʔɪl - friend's (-na first because it is the owned thing of the woman, -ɪl second to show ownership of the next thing)
ðɐnuwona - daughter (-na as the owned thing of the friend)

OR you could also do this:

uθ ðɐnuwo uθ spɛdig zi uθ dodago zi

The daughter of the friend of the woman.

A little more cumbersome, but it does the same thing.

Oh oops! >.< Should learn to proofread before I hit 'post.'  Thank you anyway! I'll probably continue to try to write (and read) some more tomorrow. I'm having so much fun with this!

No problem.

Looking forward to what you come up with. ^_^

(Has it been 11 days already? :o I'm sorry, I was battling a few personal issues and didn't have the heart to do much.)

Does this make any sense? It's supposed to be the 1st stanza of the Zagreus rhyme. I used synonyms for a few words that I couldn't find but my creativity was rather limited when it came to finding a synonym to "bed," so I left it as it is for the moment.

Odadi Zagrɛsoz əɬ ɛwɪl kalɪtɔmna oʔɛp'
Kursɛlaɬɪɬi Zagrɛsoz əɬ uθ ɑnokçɛjɔm talṱɔ nʔdo
Ʃɪlɔmaɬɪɬi Zagrɛsoz ɛwəɬ ɛwɪl [bed]ɔmna oʔɛp'
Ɛk b'akulk'ɬɪɬi ɛwəɬ ɹik'a ʔuhɑraɹɪɹa.

Do adjectives agree in number?

Zagreus is inside your head
Small typo -> oɁəp'
Otherwise, good.

Quote (NorWin)
Kursɛlaɬɪɬi Zagrɛsoz əɬ uθ ɑnokçɛjɔm talṱɔ nʔdo

Zagreus lives among the dead
I see what you are doing, however, don't forget about "alo-" which turns adj. into nouns so it could actually read:
Kursɛlaɬɪɬi Zagrɛsoz əɬ uθ talṱɔwɔm nʔdo

Quote (NorWin)
Ʃɪlɔmaɬɪɬi Zagrɛsoz ɛwəɬ ɛwɪl [bed]ɔmna oʔɛp'

Zagreus sees you in your bed
With exception to "bed", very good.

Quote (NorWin)
Ɛk b'akulk'ɬɪɬi ɛwəɬ ɹik'a ʔuhɑraɹɪɹa.

And eats you when you're sleeping

You've got it down! 'Course, once you learn one language the rest just kind of follow. As far as adjectives, one adjective is the same as another and number is not important.

Hm...you just reminded me I have to upload the new Dictionary...

Brilliant! 

Speaking of affixes that modify the nature of a word, I made a little table with all of them the other day, and I'm not sure about the difference (if any) between -gəb', -wəb' and -now (and -ni, -li and -jil) as, from what I wrote down, all first 3 turn an adjective or a noun into a verb, and the last 3 turn a noun into an adjective. Are they interchangeable?

Yes, they're interchangeable. Has to do with sounds and aesthetic appeal, whatever you prefer and looks/sounds good.

Duçta! I think I'll start trying to wrap my head around base 12 in the next days (though I probably won't post because I'll be in Scotland (!) until 2nd March). :)

I'm sure it will be! I seem to find it easier to use base <10 (base 2 is quite easy), but >10 is another story! 

Nah, I'm just visiting a friend there, she's a language assistant in a school. I'm over-excited and super nervous too..

Sfɔʃ, binary is easy. Octal is pretty simple too once you get used to it. Duodecimal is also easy if you can wrap your head around two extra numbers between 9 and 10. >:)

All right, but don't forget to have a little bit of fun. :)

Give me time, I'll get used to it! Haven't done any proper Math for.. 6? 7 years? 

I have no doubt it'll be fantastic! One day and a half until I leave now.. :D

Oh, and I had another question (don't I always?), how do I use passive forms?
