To check if a string begins with a '''cmene''', extract as many '''cmene-syllaboid'''s as you can from the left (possibly none), then you must find a consonant or cluster (details of which clusters are allowed are still to be worked out) followed by a [[ jbocre: Morphology: special characters ause] ]. In that case, you have a '''cmene''', otherwise the string does not begin with a '''cmene'''.
a 's to [[:].
A '' 'cmene-syllaboid''' consists of an optional [[jbocre: Morphology: syllables oda]], any number of [[jbocre: Morphology: syllables onsonantal-syllable]]s (possibly none), an [[jbocre: Morphology: syllables nset]] and a [[jbocre: Morphology: vowels ucleus]]. It can also be a [[jbocre: Morphology: vowels igit]], which stands for the syllable corresponding to its name, as in ''la 2005nan.'', the year 2005. ''(The reason to include the coda and consonantal-syllables as part of the syllaboid is so that things like ''ndoi'' are admissible.)''

I wrote a poem in reaction to ick Morneau's call to avoid metaphor in conlangs. See he Daily Whale from 0 July 2001.
A Note to Artificial Language Designers
Put out your eyes as if they were a fire.
Put out your eyes as if they were the trash.
Put out your eyes: They're just a metaphor.
Now let's get down and mosh.
I actually have a lot to say about metaphor. I suppose someday I'll get around to saying it.
About as oblique as Helsem, only in English instead of zirpu.
Neither of us seems oblique to me zo'o. I don't feel fluent enough to write in verse yet, but I'm learning. I have some ideas about how to adapt verse forms to the nature of the language. mi'e jezrax
