sarala'(h)e was first, but i don't want my language to be similar to
eurolangs, i rather want it to be strange, that make its users thinking i=
n
maximal different way than us, i'm now tried to put all together and put =
it
in the web, but now my lang have much lack of precision and i wonder if i=
t
isn't too unprecise...

after japanese learning i've found that sing-plural distinction may be no=
t
important...
