MNCL3 (?) is a successor to MNCL2, which is itself a successor to MNCL, a fairly simple conlang. There's no associated conculture yet, and there probably won't be.
MNCL has 25 consonants and 5 vowels with only CV syllables. I found that I had to speak it slowly, so I decided to add CVC and CVV syllables. This lets me reduce the number of consonants in MNCL3 to 21. There are still three kinds of morphemes: initial (C-, CVC-, CVCC-, or CVVC-), medial (-VC-, -VCC-, or -VVC-), and final (-V or -VV).
The 6 diphthongs (VV) allow me to have up to 11 final affixes; adjectives and the thematic case can now be distinguished from required objects of postpositions. Postpositions are now limited to relational nouns (e.g. mother, hand), relational verbs, and word forms with certain medial affixes. There are also imperative and subjunctive moods indicated by finals.
Animate and inanimate genders are now distinguished, but only by the definite article and the 3rd person pronouns.
The roots (initial morphemes) are still mostly borrowed.OrthographyGeneral MorphologySome Syntax
