Just a quick phonotactics note. Funny that, I actually tried to explain why /zz/ /vv/ and /ðð/ are as such, but as it so turns out, applying sound changes backwards is significantly more difficult than applying it forwards…

Here ś how all of the inflections work in Âagenzbèe, for the syllables that don’t give too much of a problem. I should mention that gyév is very rarely seen without the accompanying handsign (that is, gyév←→; with ←→ acting as the “interchange” motion).
