In all forms in the third person, a unique pronoun is used for the unstressed reflexive while in third person masculine singular and third pe...

This is a really interesting little project! Is avant-garde conlanging a thing yet? Because if not you may have just invented it.

Re: I don't understand what you're saying. Speak English!

Ik verstah neut, wat du seggs. Tal Läpsjen an!
/ək fərˈstɑː nət vat də zɛks tɑːl ˈlɛpʃən an/
I don't understand what you're saying. Speak Lapdeutsch!

I chose to render this in a more casual, less German sounding way. More formal speech would sound closer to German.

Thanks for all the great questions and comments Shimo! Would you consider Lapdeutsch a Low German variety? Have you considered who the speakers are or how many there are? I wouldn't consider it a Low German variety but rather a Weser-Rhine Germanic language with significant influence from Low German...

Accusative Case Remnants As requested I'll start covering actual case usage [:D]. Out of the 3 outdated cases, the accusative is by far the least used and due to this it's probably associated with older texts more than the dative and genitive are for most speakers. Below are the remaining uses of t...

I figured I’d rush through nouns since it’s pretty simple grammar. I could move on next to either more declensions, or could discuss the different ways the various cases are still used in modern speech. Which would you guys be more interested in seeing now?
