>kye + fe=3Dliterature + do/use=3Dread

don't you think the reading was first and literature then, so shouldn't t=
'read' be the earier,base/basic form;
of course it could be only one of the words for 'reading' which use is
limited (ie. for reading literature :-) )
and of course the original 'read' word might have been get out of use, an=
'kyefe' takes it place...

just think about it

>kye + lye=3Dliterature + thing/example=3Ddocument
>kyelye + ski=3Ddocument + diminuitive=3Dcard, note
>kyelyeski + gle=3Dcard + intensify/special=3Dgreeting card
>kyelye + mbe {this shortens to kyembe}=3Ddocument + big=3Dbook

what was first document or the book
'kyembe'=3Dbig literature is better (of course in MY opinion)

>kyembe + gle=3Dbook + intensify/special=3Dbible
>kyembe + hye=3Dbook +container=3Dslipcase
>kyembe + nte=3Dbook +
>kyembe + nti=3Dbook +
>kyembe + ski=3D book + diminuitive=3Dbooklet, pamphlet

that's only MY opinion, and it's nothing wrong in disagreeing, at least i=
your conlang!
