I continue to pull sentences from here: https://web.archive.org/web/20130307020009/http://fiziwig.com/conlang/syntax_tests.html
(is raining it)
The rain came down.
(came down raining)
The kitten is playing in the rain.
(playing in rain kitten)
The rain has stopped.
(stopped rain). (these 3 later)
fetha, verb, to rain
-am, turning a verb into a noun
fetham, noun, rain
THIS is the interesting part, because both the English and the French for “it rains” use a general pronoun. Il pleut, It/he present-tense-rain
Spanish skips the pronoun, as they often do:
está lloviendo Formal second-person singular to be, present-tense-rain
BUT I think there should be a word indicating the environment is doing something. SO.
fut, here-now place (“it”)
Present tense third person singular is -art
Present tense, surrounding:
It’s raining, Fethartfea fut.
