:Okay so let's finally talk about Proto-Taol.
The linguists at Chásur reconstruct Proto-Taol something like this:

f? s ʃ h
n l r ʁ
i e a ɑ o u

The existence of *f is uncertain; it is la...

: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?)

:okaja is infinitive. o is probably imperative.
otges is imperfective present. In the past otʝīt is used.
otʝīt is habitual present. opədīt is habitual past.
otɕa is perfective present. opəpâ is perfective past.
otʝīph is hortatitve present.
opənpēh is whatever the 'should have' mood is called; usually past but sometimes present.
opədêr is optative.
The language is either Low Tavarian or High Tavarian. I'm not sure which. My intuition says Low, but I want to plac...

The *fruit family is shit Polynesian or something. The Taol family is... Germanic I guess?
