Proyo

Proyo is a proposed international auxiliary language which is said to take inspiration from Esperanto, Ido, Novial, Elefen and Glosa. It can be considered an Esperantido (or a Novialide more specifically). Like the others, it aims to be a simple and highly regular language easy for people from any linguistic background to learn. I would say it places particular importance on the need for words to be extremely easily pronounceable, being willing to “deform” word roots to the point of unrecognisability if necessary to ensure they’re easily pronounced.

Another feature of it that I find interesting is the use of different classes of verbs correlate to different semantic ways of using verbs. That is, specifically:

  • Verbs ending -u have a subject patient (i.e. the subject is “experiencing” the verb), often considered intransitive in their “home” languages
  • Verbs ending -a have an object patient (i.e. the object “experiences”) the verb, often considered transitive in their “home” languages
  • Verbs ending -e have a subject patient in relation to the object (i.e. the subject “experiences” what the object does), also considered transitive in their “home” languages

The language is still under development and some features of it might change. Still, I think it has some neat ideas.
