About Tigari Tigari 869 is my first conlang. The only stated goal is to help me learn to conlang.
Grammar is a tough subject.

Tigari characteristics:
*VSO Isolating & Analytical
*Every noun is assumed plural; there's a modifier "na" 7 to make a noun explicitly singular. "We" is used when a person is speaking about him/her/itself, except in specific circumstances when "I" is used. For more information, read the article "Singular and Plural".

(The following is outdated)
*The script is like an abjad, abugida, or AlphaSyllabary, or something. Unmodified letters are consonants. Vowel diacritics (the unique ends that you can see on the 'stand-alone' vowels) are added to the ends of the consonants' lines, not just above. That makes producing the font difficult to say the least. Here is an example of how it looks with vowels attached:

*The language is written without spaces, left to right. It has a ceremonial form that is written in a spiral.

*I decided that each C(V) needs to be written with one stroke of the pen. The "i" is the only exception.

The current font is a work-in-progress. It's hard to make a syllabary work.
