@purplemontart I know but I can't find any info on how Japanese handles subordinate clauses where the examples aren't in kanji and kana - i could do with glossed romaji to look at the structure without straining my very beginner Japanese

Okay, so Old Alait is resolutely head-final even though I had no idea what that meant when I started deciding where things went in the sentence...

So if I look up some examples of how head-final languages handle subordinating clauses

I am still not sure I'm right to call that a subjunctive mood but it's definitely a mood and none of the other moods I've looked at fit

I have a tab open that right now reads BringBackSna

And when I forget it says “Bring Back ,” I think it’s saying “bring Back Snape.”

I think I just broke my brain trying to work out how my conlang would handle a sentence like "I think you know he did it"

The hen brooded diligently, so much so, that if the layer of the eggs had returned, she would have fought to remain on the nest.

She wasn't very smart. She was a chicken.

But nothing ever came to reclaim the eggs. The hen trilled and cackled comfortingly to the eggs. She wasn't smart, but she was there for them.

Some time later, travelers would report a pair of clucking, cackling, fire-breathing dragons protecting a wild flock, taking turns carrying their aging mother up to the clouds.

1/2

The hen had few desires; to grow fat on grubs and grains, to keep eggs warm and to soar through the clouds.
She excelled at the first two, but her flying efforts, though determined, were limited. Still,she managed to reach many of the highest treetops and rocky outcrops, further than the rest of the flock.

During her highest flight, she found a cliffside cave with a nest cradling two cooling eggs. Without hesitation she began to brood.

@softmetals yes yes while you millenials have supposedly been destroying everything we Gen-Xers have been secretly plotting to out do you in one fell swoop by destroying dinosaurs.

(This is a joke if it wasn't clear. I know the media nonsense about millenials is nonsense)
