Re: Classical/Cuātlicañ Court Momṭẓʿālemeōm

Dependent possesive pronouns come after the gender marking, and before plural/case markers. In the latter case, some have allomorphs from the nom.abs.sing form. Example: Juētl "Spear" (neut) 1P sing: Juētlañēo 1P plr: Juētlamīuc 2P sing: Juētlitza 2P plr: Juētlitzī 3P sing masc-fem: Juētlōij 3P sing...

Re: Classical/Cuātlicañ Court Momṭẓʿālemeōm

Gender-marked nouns are nouns that are explicitly marked for gender. They cannot be in the paucal. Take the root Lāhcʿuēz "Adult Sheep". It must be marked for gender like so: Lāhcʿuēzatāḷ "Ram" Lāhcʿuēzōciuh "Ewe" Lāhcʿuēzīxeṭẓʿ "Mutton; slain sheep" However, these full markers are only used for the...

Re: Classical Ȟanese/Proto-Kanic

Verbs are unmarked for tense, but certain particles that I will call preverbs are put in front of verbs to mark aspect and mood. Post-verbal adverbs are placed after the verb. The verb unmarked by a preverb is assumed to be in the perfective. In a whole phrase, an unmarked verb of motion is placed f...

Re: Classical Ȟanese/Proto-Kanic

The pronouns are unusual, as they have a unique nominative form, and a form for non-nominative. The non-nominative form is used for possesives, followed by Ša̋il. Focus is marked by the unique particle Wàr. Nominative forms: 1P sing: Nhwóa 1P plr Nhwóameïr 2P sing Nèü 2P plr: Nèümeïr 3P sing: Kwhì 3...

Pronouns come in four cases: Nominative, Accusative, Oblique and Genitive. On the 3P singular, Masc and Fem are distinguished, as are proximate and obviate on all 3P pronouns.

Re: Making an interesting Isolating/Analytic lang

If a language has case-marking (eg through suppletive pronouns), then it is not purely analytic. Of course, there's no reason a language has to be 'purely' anything. I never said that it was supposed to be purely isolating/analytic. In fact, I want it a bit less isolating/analytic then most Sinitic...

Is it possible to have independent prox-obv pronouns? If so, could possessive pronouns be unmarked for obviation? Can a language have prox-obv on top of a gender distinction?

Maillys is a restart from scratch of the idea of a Celtic-inspired language spoken near Fuheko.
