This is meant to be a simple auxillary language, based on the letters that are shared by all UNESCO languages (and possible future UNESCO languages). Those languages are Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish (and Bengali, Hindi, Portuguese, and Turkish). It could also have a "simple" grammar.

Every subtopic will be divided in a certain way. First, the language will be explained in a linguist-satisfying way. Then, it will be explained in a layman-satisfying way.

Also, this auxlang would not necessarily be easy for people who speak these languages; for this, I apologize.

SoundsEdit

LinguistEdit

Bilabial/Labio-dental Dental/Alveolar Velar

Fricative s /s̪~s/
Approximant l /l~ɫ/

Low a /a~ɑ/

The stops are written as voiced because I don't know of any language with only aspirated voiced plosives; however, many languages have aspirated voiceless plosives and no tenuis voiceless plosives.

Because most of the languages do not have any one case, Lisa I has no cases.

PronounsEdit

Because Chinese has no case, no pronouns have case.

VerbsEdit

The verbs all have one form.

Some PrepositionsEdit

There are prepositions.

Why the Language is Called Lisa Ui (not I Lisa)Edit

Because of the (transliterated) words fusga, ju, linwid, lag, jisig, lingwa, basa, basa, lingwa, and lisan, the word for language is lisa.

Because of the words waagid, i, wan, i, adin, un, ig, ig, um, and bil, the word for one is ui.

Because the languages have, of the nouns, adjectives in a place after, before, before, after, before, after, before, before, after, and before, adjectives precede the noun. There are more languages that go adjective-noun, though, so now I retconned it to be adjective-noun.

This is why the name of the language is Lisa Ui.
