Here's my revised version of my future English, now with the grammatical
changes.

Phonetic pronunciation. ch=/C/, kh=/x/, au=/aU/, ei=/ai/, eu=/OI/

Grammatical changes:
- The plural "-s/-es" got detached and turned into the particle "esh", which
is now placed before the word. It is not used when a specific amount is
given by a number.
- The genitive "'s" turned into the prefixed particle "as" ("asa" before
consonant). The "of"-construction died out.
- Prepositions changed to Postpositions, often suffixed with a hyphen.
- The indefinite article died out, the definite article turned into the
suffixed particle "ti" ("i" after consonant). This definitive marked is also
used for forming the ordinal numbers and fractions from the cardinal numbers.
- Adverbs (-ly) are not marked anymore.
- Original plural personal pronouns died out. Those are now formed using the
plural marker "esh".

            sing.               plur.
1st p.      I->ej*->ech /eC/    eshej*/eshech
2nd p.      you -> iu   /i.u/   eshiu
3rd p. (m)  he  -> chi  /Ci/    echi
3rd p. (f)  she -> chia /Ci.a/  echia
3rd p. (n)  it  -> et   /Et/    eshet
Mixed gender groups always use the (n) form.
* ej/eshej are outdated forms, hardly used anymore.

- Verbal endings got detached and are now particles placed before the verb.
This eliminated all irregular verbs.
- Tenses don't use any auxiliary verbs anymore, only the particles.
