Bird found several people with the same username, so he entered your e-mail address into the search bar. Be sure to check your invitations so Bird knows if he contacted the correct person.

Returning to the subject of pronouns, Bird made the following words for the "vegetal" roles like Tree and Flower.

thuzl - 1st person singular vegetal
vos - 2nd person singular vegetal
zehzh - 3rd person singular vegetal


Bird also attempted a system for making antonyms. All consonants except the endings were shifted by nine letters while all vowels were shifted to the third appropriate vowel. The ending consonants were shifted to the third appropriate letter. For example, "culjim" becomes "xoltuht". 

Beneath each word is its antonym. Bird invites the tribe to discuss how the antonyms shall be interpreted.
