I'm just going to stick to the ones that have all the pronouns dropped so I don't have to bother with all the different word orders...

I think I should get rid of the lowercase glottal stop thing, but I'm not really sure what to replace it with. I just picked it based on the stød symbol because I need a separate letter or else I end up with letters with 3 diacritics :/

Hyphens added purely for transcription purpoises. Using default word order for Eyþï, Žilèði, Kixaḷi and Mira. Eyþï is V2, the others are free word order. Žilèði, Kixaḷi and Mira are pro-drop, but the 1s subject pronouns have been left.

See 1S IDR 2S

"I see" would be:
Joomo ta
See-agentivizer* 1S
/jɑ:mɑ tɐ/

*Might be more appropriate to call it an antipassive

You are seen (by me)
Joo na (nuhe me ta ma)

Jutean: Hawaiian phonology meets Tagalog, with English ergativity and Mandarin tenselessness added.
