I've been working on this for a few days now. It's heavily based off of Japanese. Although, my language has more basic sounds than Japanese. My language has the same basic strucutre as Japanese. SVO. It will also have 'kanji' as you can tell. :D Hope you like it

I'm not an expert, in fact I don't know very much about Japanese, but one thing I'm quite sure is that Japanese normal structure is not SVO, but SOV o_O.

I think that you should also be careful that 'simple' syllables take ages to write. Look at your 'sh' line for example.

I have to say though, your kanji system looks pretty neat.
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.

I'm currently trying to make a font (which takes forever!), so, I've taken out the n's except for the 'im' line (5th one), the box.

I've done more but I didn't feel like scanning it XD. either tomorrow or friday

Just thought I'd add some info :D.

VERBS

-ALL verbs (in the infinitive/present tense) end in some form of 'ai' i.e. kai, sai, dai, etc.

To be- sudokai
To go- mamosai
To have- rakai

*present tense does not get conjugated!!

Past tense

take off fianl 'ai' and add 'afu'

To be- sudokafu
To go- mamosafu
To have- rakafu

Negative

take off 'ai' and add anamasu (the su at the end of a word is pronounced ss)

to be- sudokanamasu
to have- rakanamasu
to go- mamosanamasu

*estra verbs

to take- memai
to leave- shokai
to stay- jisai
ummmm....... I speak some banging french! XD

Sorry, I haven't really posted much. I've been having some problems that I need not go into detail. Once these meds set in, I'll work/post more.
