The Dailies. August 3
Did you work on your language today? Create any new rules of grammar or syntax? New progress on a script? New words in your lexicon?
On the other hand, do any excavating or reading or enjoying stuff you’ve already created? Do you have any favorites to share?
How did you conlang today?0

I did Tuesday’s and today’s challenge. Too tired to type coherently at the moment, but here is the comment from the challenge thread!
Congrats! Lovely work. 😀
Yesterday, huge breakthrough.
Proto-Kachan used a topic, comment sentence style with an initial topic word fully inflected to agree with its referent. Word order was OVS. The initial person-marking slot on a Modern Akachenti verb really is patient and only began to have a reversal option due to the patient/topic slots collapsing in many cases. As topic can be inflected as agent, which referent was marked in which slot became malleable.
Furthermore, the alternate vowel person markers appear to be related to the inflection of the nouns for their case, with the stressed person markers appearing in agreement on the verbs.
I’m so happy right now.
Great! I love seeing breakthroughs!
