Okay, so I think I understand now.
This is my original sentence, fixed (I think. Again, correct me if not so):

Gormi, odadi ɪmɪl zaʔslɪjozna Dʒɑʃjuə.

The third person marker goes on odadi because that is talking about my name.
But if I was to say "I am not bad" for example, it would be:

Ɛɹodad ɪmoz fo ʃɪzowəɬ.

Is this correct?  Because in this case, odad is refering to me?

Yes! *fist pump* EXCEPT I'm pretty sure you meant "j" instead of "ɹ". Darn those iPad keyboards, eh?

WHOO!  I received a fist pump!  So proud! :D
I'm slowly grasping these concepts.

Bugger!
Actually I just misread the symbol in the GME.  Didn't look closely enough, more of a glance.  My mistake.  Now I know!
Also - is there no word for "good"?  I did a search in the Dictionary, couldn't find it.  So it's assumed we just simply say "not bad"? :)

Here is another few.
I think the second one is wrong.
However, I reckon the best way for me to do this is just to keep pumping out sentences, get notes/corrections and then remember them as I keep writing!

o.O Fascinating. I never noticed that, just kind of assumed we had it. I guess we need one, don't we? (Psst, Word Submissions is always open.)

You catch on quick. :D Just a few things:
Adpositions, don't be fooled by the name, come after their object. (Lord of Time -> Lord Time of)
You may notice above I didn't attach object marker to any names. We're still not decided if we want such markers on proper nouns and currently only use it as ultra-formal speech. Which is okay, you got it right, just letting you know.

I do not understand this "sapɪpɑlɪpəɬ" of which you speak. pɑlɪp -> to feel but -əɬ -> object marker. I'm confused.

I...think you want to say "How are you feeling?" Yes?

I don't think it's that you are confused, more so that I am ;) hehe

Can I PM you for a crash course about determining objects / sentence structure because at this point these are my main points of struggle?

No problem. :)

And in the event of...

Mɛjn lo pɑlɪpara ɛw?
"How are you feeling?"

pɑlɪp -> state of being "Are you happy?" This would be the general "How are you?"

ṱwɪzow -> to sense, feel (physical) While this would normally be used as "She could feel the wind on her face." using it with Mɛjn lo might be appropriate after an injury to inquire of the physical state. "Does it hurt?"

ʃəlnodəb' -> to sense, feel (telepathic) Telepathic use only. "I can feel him [in my mind/nearby/etc]."

Remember that "are feeling" is present progressive tense, unless the verb is Ev (therefore just present tense).

Ɛkursɛlaɹ ɪmoz Ɔstɹɐlɪɑʔəɬ oʔəp’.

Or, alternatively...

Ɛkursɛlaɹ ɪmoz Ɔstɹɐlɪɑ oʔəp’.

All correct?

Yes.

Also, in your name (there in your logo), don't forget to extend all the lines out to the middle ring.

I fixed it, and gave it a much higher resolution as well, so I think it looks pretty now :D

I certainly did. I am 18 based on our Earth calendar! :)

YES! :D
I'm so happy I got it right!  That's the first one right without needing correction :D
