Quote from: Miestră Schivă, UrN on January 20, 2022, 02:12:56 PMYeah, I was just coming here to post that after posting it on talossa.net.Talossan has a completely different grammar than English, one much closer to French. You can't "translate" by replacing individual words with their dictionary equivalents. For example, "celebratar" is the infinitive, "to celebrate"; you need the imperative, "celebratetz".I know that the current grammar of Talossan might be heavy going for newcomers, but it's easier to read and understand than Ben Madison's grammar from 1996 which I learned out of. Everyone who wants to try to use Talossan should read it first, then ask questions.

The biggest difference to my mind (French->English translator here) is that Talossan doesn't have a subjunctive mood.
