I have begun translating the UDHR.

So far, this has produced the following new features:

Productive affixes:

<-gɹu:> Metaphorical characteristic, converts noun to stative
<dwi-. Negation, used on adjectives and statives only


<du> (and) is mandatory in lists when required for disambiguation. Use of <du> in a list of nominals overrides the reinforcing prefix rule.

The preamble's series of relative clauses translate as a series of independent sentences. These will be posted as each is translated. This translation is ungrossed.

. . . .


In the first attempt to post this, I used spaces to separate syllables and three spaces to separate words. Unfortunately, the software removed the extra spaces, making word breaks hard to identify.

Here it is again, using hyphens as syllable breaks (and correcting a typo).

In returning to the UDHR, I have introduced two new productive prefixes:

[a-] Abstraction, converts verb to noun
[twi-] Negation, used for abstract nouns
