-Vowel lengthening by doubling
[ɛ] to [i:] when 'e' is doubled
[æ] to [a:] when 'a' is doubled
-'-
Unsure of exact function yet.  In names, it separates the given and family names (Tali'Zorah and her father, Rael'Zorah)
-y-
Can be a vowel or a consonant
-Digraphs/Diphthongs-
'ch' = [ç] and only appears as such.  Is treated as its own letter, though 'c' does not exist on its own.  
'th' = [θ] and only appears as such.  Is treated as its own letter.  (This means that 'geth' is technically a three-letter word)
'ae' = [eɪ]

Asari Grammar
--Alphabet--
Aa Cc Ee Gg Hh Ii Kk Ll Mm Nn Oo Pp Rr Ss Tt Uu Vv Xx Yy Zz †(ŃŠ …ť ÕŪ ”ů ŕķ ›ż)
-The initial stress position of a word is on the first syllable, but can be moved by using the acute accent over a vowel, as in Spanish
-The plosives [b] and [d] have morphed together with [p] and [t]. †(Samara says that 'Ar[d]at-Yakshi comes from a dead Asari dialect)
--Cases--
Asari has 4 cases: Nominative, Accusative, Dative, and Genitive. †These are marked in nouns by prefixes
Nominative Case: †This case has no marking, so a bare noun always sigifies that it is the subject
Accusative Case: †The accusative marking is the prefix [sa-]
Dative Case: †The dative marking is the prefix [ta-]
Genitive Case: The genitive case marking is the prefix [la-] on the object being possessed, and [le-] on the noun possessing the object
-These prefixes do not apply to proper nouns such as proper names or place names, except for genitive's markers
--Verbs--
-Infinitive Form is [verb]+[m]
-Conjugation is prefi

I'm pretty much a solid colanger now, so I'm going to focus more on uploading textual content than the (let's face it) subpar art I used to put up.  If I do put art up, it'll be my personal best, not just anything.  People visiting this page deserve something nice, not just sketches :)

I conlang now. I have a sketchbook, too, but most of it will probably never be uploaded.

What is Conlanging? It is the (art) of creating new, fictional languages, right down to the syntax and dialects. It's a lot of work, but I find it fun. J.R.R. Tolkien, author of the Lord of the Rings books, was himself a conlanger. He created several languages for the different races of Middle Earth.

Much of the art in my sketchbook is concept art for the world the speakers of these fictional languages live in.
I personally conlang for the purpose of fleshing out different races I have created. The actual use of these races and nations can be observed at gathering.forumotion.com/forum (At the bottom, the 'Forum Wars' section. My name on that website is 'darthme')
