from the document thingy

Huh. Something was added and I missed it. Well, with regards to that, you did get that right. Do trust the document. Rhiannon runs the Project Notes, I run the Dictionary. If there are discrepancies, PLEASE tell one of us. D:

Quote (Lexi-Rae)
I'm assuming you did that for parallel structure, correct me if I'm wrong about that. 

Yup.

Quote (Lexi-Rae)
Actually, no, no questions, I get this. I ACTUALLY GET THIS! :D

Yay! *confetti*

Quote (Lexi-Rae)
Hey, thanks a ton, this is so much fun, even though I totally screwed up I'm loving it.

Screwing up is only half the fun. The other half is when you finally master something. ;)

AHHHHHHHH I'VE BEEN STUDYING THE LANGUAGE ALL DAY BACK FOR MORE SSTUDYING SO I CAN GET IT RIGHT!

How would one go about saying "There was a man" or "There once lived a man" or "There lived a man"?

I suppose you would be modifying Suçɪʃ with tense affixes to create "There was"?

So, Suçɪʃam?
Or could I make "There lived a man" by writing...

ʃoʃok kursɛlam dodagɐ.

Hmm.  Needs help. :)

Yes!

That depends on what you mean. This sentence means you're talking about the place/time the man lived in. Generally speaking, we haven't figured out how to combine "There be" and other verbs, but I suppose it could be Suçɪʃ+[noun]+[participle].

Suçɪʃam dodagɐ aʃkursɛl aʃəm, zaʔslɪ aʃəm Dʒɑʃjuə.

Now, I'm fairly sure that is rubbish and wrong, but it's a start to me trying to suss out how to write some more advanced sentences.

kursɛl is a participle, not a verb, so it's aʃəm kursɛl, not aʃkursɛl. zaʔslɪ is a noun, not a verb. We actually don't have a verb for it yet. We're hoping to fix that this week. Instead say "whose name was".

Yeah, we don't have "cool", but it might not be separate from "awesome".

The aʃəm can go on either side, right?  So I can choose to put it after kursɛl?

I think it would all read like this:

Suçɪʃam dodagɐjoz kursɛl aʃəm k’avɪl odaʃ zaʔslɪjəɬna Dʒɑʃjuə.

I'm not sure, but I think my main issue with this is the sentence structure?

No, it always goes after the verb.

Quote (awakening)
dodagɐjoz

dodagɐʔoz and it's perfect! Remember when doing it in Circular that everything after k’avɪl would be in a new judicium.

No problem! Rihays is much better at remembering all the rules, though.

I am trying writing in Gallifreyan. Gallifreyan is cool.

Back to attempting sentences ^_^  I've been reading the Guide some more and I think I understand it better, but I'm sure this sentence still has mistakes-o-plenty.

Study buddy?

Why don't we do a collaborative story together, then just post it and people can look at it and see how awesome it is! Haha
