About Fundah This is an in-progress language, named Funda. It is a logical language based phonologically on Pacific Island and (sorta lexically) on East Asian languages. This is my first conlang, so this will be changed and tweaked a lot. I'll probably change this summary later.

Some things about this conlang:
    - SVO word order
    - Interrogative verb conjugation for polar questions
    - Vowel length
    - Agglutination on everything
    - Genitive particle


Currently doing a grammar overhaul, and will write some articles soon.

Syllable StructureBig change, yeah!
Syllable structure is (C)V(N/O) where O represents /b/, /d/, or /g/.
Stress informationStress always falls on the penultimate syllable, unless the word has one syllable, in which case there is no stress.
If the penultimate syllable is lengthened, then the second vowel will have the stress, similar to a rising tone towards the second vowel, although the tone is not phonemic. If the final syllable is lengthened, then the first vowel will have the stress, similar to a falling tone towards the second vowel. This tone is also not phonemic.
OtherWhen vowels appear directly next to each other, such as when a root ends with a vowel and an affix begins with the same vowel, or when two different vowels appear in the same word, there is an optional unmarked glottal stop between said vowels.
