Thank you very much :) You might exercise patience for a while... I have 48 pages of morphology, but neither defined the syntax clearly, nor pragmatics at all. There are several translation challenges around here I did if you want some more, though.

How is شاهنشاه translated usually? Looks there is some root of "Schah" inside, so is this some kind of non-productive genitive in fact?

How far are Pusza and Tasza from each other? Guessing from this challenge, they look pretty much as dialects that might me easily mutually intelligible, but I might be wrong for more complex sentences. (That's not critisism; they already seem to by more different than, for example, Czech and Slovak are. [:)] )

I will excercise patience. Also, Shahanshah is probably condensed from a longer, more logical word in middle/old persian, but looking at it now, to me it just means emperor, or king of kings. It, however, literally translates to "KingsKing" [That's basically King.pl(Implied Genitive)-King]. It's probably got a remnant of the plural genitive case ending in their (the hān).

They are very close, derived from the same proto-language. The main differences are in tense-aspect-mood: in Pusza the proto-language's aspects have turned into tenses, so the progressive aspect which denoted incomplete processes has become the future tense, the perfect has become the past, and the generic (which could be perfective, habitual or gnomic) has become the present. And the continuous, which is very commonly used in Tasza, is absent from Pusza.

I'm working on another language derived from the same proto-language that is less similar, called Buszalħoszu. They could probably all be seen as dialects of each other, though. And also I'm working on another branch derived from the proto-language of the proto-language. I have a set world for all this, but at the same time consider it an exercise; I've never gone this far with anything like this before, despite intending to.

The middle dot is used when a suffix is not pronounced because it is the same as the final sound in a word. In this case the genitive suffix -n.

What problem did you have with just spelling it ohasiyunn? Doesn't look awkward for me.
