Email from Alex:
Hey everyone, my name’s Alex and I’m a conlanger and regular watcher of your podcast (which, I adore, by the way) and I had a question.
I’m making a conlang, which isn’t ready to be seen by other humans eyes, but I’ve hit a bump. The language will be either OSV or OVS but the subject is often excluded due to the community of fictional speakers focus[ing] on what is done and who’s affected more than who preformed the action. My question is, is this a logical sentence structure? I don’t enough about exotic syntax and I want to make sure it’s not illogical.
The language marks verbs for clusivity, number, and evidentiality.
What do you think? Do you have any tips?
