Why does every cmevla need a dot after its ending consonant, which (together with the following space) is supposed to be already distinguishing the word as such?

>> No.593  

The dot is always optional in writing, if a space is used. The dot serves to remind that there is an obligatory pause there. Not all spaces represent obligatory pauses.

>> No.594  


The "dot" here represents a pause. If the pause was not there, then the last consonent of the cmevla would/may run into the next word. For example: "[la martin. a'o citka lo plise]" would become "[la marti na'o citka lo plise]". Or: "[la bab. ractu]" would be "[la ba bractu].

Plus there's the other, totally impractical, reason: That it makes our language even weirder looking! We've already got abundant use of X, weird word shapes, lots of apostrophes. So we take it to the next level with a bunch of periods and even COMMAS. Oh yeah baby! If you are looking for an alien looking language for a comic book, have we got your thing! Klingon's uppercasing, oh yeah sO LeEt DudEZ. Come on we're where it's at.

I'm wondering about the comma in ".sel,kik". Isn't it supposed to be used between vowels?
