the language is [[Weyötiss]]
things to note:
panel 1: The correct word is αρμμο (i.e. αρμ=μο food=1SG). Literal translation "what is becoming of my foond".
panel 2: Correctly spelled φομμτο'ν (i.e. φομμ-το-'ν steak=2SG=PROX). The word ΑΛΑΧ should be ΑΛΑΧΝΟΝ (i.e. α-λαχν-ον without-vegetable-N). Literal translation "your steank here VEGETALLESS you thus ordered sir"

The linguists at Chásur reconstruct Proto-Taol something like this:

:I think you said you fixed searching but it's still not quite fixed, seems to need the author_restrict=1&group_restrict=1 parameters to work right.
also, if you care, the ellipses in the search results are added unconditionally

I mentioned this on IRC but I would recommend putting a dot before the CA (as in anthologi.ca) so that you get an even number of characters and it lines up nicely.

:Láadan is actually a pretty language (fight me), so I am going to make a derivative out of it.
It does have some nooblang problems which will need to be retconned, however. I feel like the phonology honestly doesn't have to be one of these—it's weird, but I feel like it's kind of plausibly weird.
A thing which does to be retconned is the noobish phenomenon (which really needs a name) of forming a group of related words with by changing only one phoneme—e.g. the evidentials [b]w...

:j is /j/
honestly in general using <j> as a fricative is against my aesthetic.
okaja, o, otges, otcīt, otćâ, otcīph, opedêr, opedīt, opepâ, openpēh
macron and circumflex are original and secondary length; the latter is from contraction and the former is from some sort of stress-based lengthening (considering *okʷdipah and *okʷədipah or something, say stress is on the second syllable?)
