Hi, All. This is more appropriate to AUXLANG but I thought I'd post in
CONLANG as well... hope that's okay.
 Here is something new that I've been working on: Elomi (
http://ca.geocities.com/handydad/elomi/elomi-main.html).

 I've always liked the sound of Hawai'ian and other Polynesian languages,
but had never thought of a way to achieve something like it in a
self-segregating morphology with the clear-cut compounding mechanisms that I
prefer. Now I think I have.

 Elomi's genesis lies within Konya but it is quite a different language. It
is even more vowel-y. Its morphology is even simpler. It is strongly
head-initial. And I think it is prettier, more appealing, though at the
cost, sometimes, of some extra syllables.

 For a while at least, I intend to pursue Konya and Elomi in parallel. Every
construct that gets thought of for one probably needs a counterpart in the
other.

 The Elomi web site is nearly identical to that of Konya, and I have created
a Yahoo group (linkable from the web site). I invite your comments and
critiques there. I look forward to hearing from you all.
