Anyone want to start on the grammar already?

This is where the work of building the language gets done.

Anyone want to start on the grammar already?

Yes, ongoing discussions about phonology can still invalidate whatever we discuss here, but in phonology discussions I feel like a fish out of water.

So... To start the discussion: I have been thinking about tenses and that they are not in all languages, especially creoles often lack them and compensate by a rich aspect system. These languages are supposed to be easy, our language is also supposed to be easy or at least not too weird, so I suggest that we also have something similar. I propose a perfective, progressive, inceptive, terminative, habitual, and maybe also pausative and resumptive aspects. Anyone with me?

How about noun morphology? I suggest something simple but a little unusual.

Number singular and plural

Cases
Nominative (subject)
Genitive (posessor or source)
Accusative (object of monotransitive verb, recipient of ditransitive verb, destination of motion)
Secundative (theme of ditransitive verb)

Not a different name for the dative case. In the sentence "I give the dog a bone", its

I-nom give dog-acc bone-sec

Whereas with a dative you'd have

I-nom give dog-dat bone-acc

I see. Seems to be strange, but then, I like it. I cautiously agree but might vehemently disagree when I wake up.

If you want to make this as sadistically complex as possible, I suggest adding an ablative and a vocative.
