Example sentences

Postby Dennis » Sun 10 Jul 2011 8:48 pm

After I've come a long way with a conlang grammar, I want to test it by using some example sentences to make sure I've got equivalents (or not) for most tenses and other grammatical subjects. I know that there are some here who've used them, and I know there is a list of them somewhere which has most subjects in the least amount of sentences. So my question is: do you have a list, a link to it, or any other help with this?
Speak: Dutch, English
Something between reading and speaking: French, German
Read: Latin, Ancient Greek

Japanese: somewhere around JLPT 4 level (out of 5), I guess. Also, I (should) know around 250-300 kanji.
