 I'm an English auxlang enthusiast whose strongest languages are English, French, and Esperanto. Others I know fairly well include Volapük, Idiom Neutral, and German. I've made the following pronoun-proposal for Folksprak (Mor14): I'm an English auxlang enthusiast whose strongest languages are English, French, and Esperanto.

-In relation to the rest of the language, I support various things that others have already proposed, i.e. definite article **de**, indefinite (singular) article **en**; plural ending **-e**, genitive ending **-s**; adjectival comparison endings **-er** and **-est**; infinitive ending **-en**. And I'm sympathetic to making the verb //Be// irregular.

-I did some work on a correlatives proposal (snapshot: **vat, vem, vems, vilk, van, vaar, varfur, ho; dis, das, al, sum, ing**), and I might tackle the conjunctions and prepositions too. Regarding the "old chestnut"​ of the past tense and the past/​passive participle, my latest thinking is as follows: the past-tense ending should be **-ed** and the participle ending should be **-t** by default, **-et** after D/T, and **-d** after voiced consonants. (Or, if we aren't bothered about part-of-speech marking, we could use the same word in both places.)
