Now I have to Drop the Drop!
Which means I had to figure out that “present continuous” tense existed.
I have nuba, which is the root for drop.
Without figuring out all of the conjugations at the moment, -othe is the ending for:
Continuous present tense, third person singular.
But the whispers are plural!
Okay, then -othed.
the -a on nuba goes away, and you get Nubothed ˈnəb ō ˌthed
We’re going VOS so:
Edit: I said VOS, I thought VOS, and then I wrote it SV. Sign. Fixed.

If you’re following this, you may have noticed that I’m fascinated by plurals with grammatical number.
So in making a plural to make the words Whispers Drop, I decided to make several plural forms.
-er is the most commonly used, and indicates a generic plural.
-ara indicates part of a group, “those four students,” for instance.
-ore indicates all of a particular thing.
And here’s another thing to add in!
Whisper is ssussu.
To make this plural, we’ll repeat the first consonant (in this case the only consonant): ssussusser.
(Rule, courtest thnidu: “When pluralizing, if the word ends in a vowel copy the first consonant onto the end before adding the ending.”)

Okay, I want to name the language:
But this means I need to make:
1. Verb conjugation
3. the words for whisper and drop
Okay, starting out easy:
ssussu, the first word in my gibberish, is Whisper.
nuba is going to be some form of drop
Okay, got that done. I’ll do the next part tomorrow!
