I was working on _Learn TIAL_ and needed some examples, so I took some quasi-standard ones and translated them without reference to the official word-list, which is pretty sparse. The sentences are:

1. John ate the meat raw.
2. John ate the meat nude.
3. Mary hammered the metal flat.

This is how they came out:

1. Janno manja karno krude.
2. Janno manja karno nude.

-- say them out loud --

3. Mario perkussa diagramo da sintakso plane.

I've made some more progress, adding general vocabulary (I could add a lot more if it weren't so tedious) and function words. I wrote up the syntax for nominalized clauses, then rewrote it after I decided to use an event-nominal phrase instead of one that matched the clause template better. So, this is the new syntax:

1. lo Subject Verb-o
2. lo yo=Verb-o
3. lo Agent Verb-o (da Patient)
4. lo yo=Verb-o (da Patient)
5. lo Donor Verb-o (da Theme) (a Recipient)
6. lo yo=Verb-o (da Theme) (a Recipient)

The "distal" determiner is now le instead of lo, since it goes with the possessive leo. The others are still to and so.

TIAL Started

After working most of eight days on TCR4, I took a break and started work on TIAL (Third IAL). It copies some things from SIAL (such as the part-of-speech endings), but the syntax is simpler, due to my noticing that my artlang F0 was less complicated than SIAL. It takes advantage of:

T = Subject = Head
V = Verb = Modifier
C = Object = Modifier's Object (where this occurs)

This is different from Greenberg's V-O to H-M and O-V to M-H correlations.
