You know what: I never, I mean never, comment on langs, but I like this one. It seems interesting. Please don't mess this up by stealing chinese and japanese words. Make it an a priori (an "a priori" is a language where the vocabulary is purely original). Like, by all means take grammar ideas and such from Chinese and Korean, but don't just take vocab. I'm counting on you mate!! Also, look at some of ED's langs, they could give you some ideas for grammar.
Oh, come now. There's going to be plenty of loanwords in this language, as it has been thoroughly sinicized/mongolized(?) after 1500 k years of foreign occupation. Not a Priori. Supposed to be realistic, not original. Meant to be able to be plopped in the middle of manchuria and nobody would notice.

I believe he meant not to steal lexicon wholesale. An a priori base with a posteriori loans are cool, and definitely realistic.

I mean, think of Basque. Basque is a language isolate which means that there seems to be no relatonship between the language's native vocabulary and any other language. In all intents and purposes, Basque is an a priori and it has plenty of Spanish loans.You could do the same.
Yeah, except this is supposed to be a vassal state of China and Mongolia for 1.5k years. Also, seeing how at least a quarter of the Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese lexicon originates in Chinese, due to Chinese being the "respected" culture, akin to Latin, there's going to be loan words. A lot of loan words. 18.104.22.168 17:11, December 30, 2015 (UTC) Scratch my last comment; I see what you're talking about. I see where you're talking about. However, most of the loan words have come up quite early ~1500 years ago. Thus, they will seem to fit in with natural words, yet correlate with Chinese words.

Name Change Edit
