    You are / Qus trits
    He is / Qath tritq
    She is / Qaeth tritq
    It is / Qite tritq
    We are / Quk trin
    You are / Qusk trib
    They are / Qathel trin

    Yes, that makes much more sense that what I was thinking. My brain is like a pea in that it is small, wrinkly, green, and tasty in soup.

    Hmm. Whether a conlang has words or phrases that translate simply into the words/phrases above says a lot about the form and structure of the language, I think. I wouldn't expect every conlang to be that convenient, and when it did, I'd suspect the lang had a bit of a european influence in its development.

    (That being said... I, being of european descent, have an affinity for european-styled languages that structure in this way...)
    I think, therefore I am a nerd.

    Is that not the purpose of a forum? Discussion? Anyway, maybe I'l have something up later, if I can be bothered to search up the file.

    Dude, Dutch is not a conlang!
    Although I must admit... it would be pretty cool if my native language was a conlang.

    But fine, here goes my own favorite conlang Irduron:
    em (ec) - I am
    es (sy) - you are
    et (eá) - he is
    est (hé) - she is
    sei (wir) - we are
    sér (dir) - you are (pl)
    sech (ear) - they are


    Since Irduron is a pro-drop language and the personal pronoun is usually omitted, I put them in parentheses.
