* I need to post something about ConDFW.

* I've worked on several sketches, some of which could also be posted on.

* I've just started KLH3. It uses a K > L > 3 hierarchy, as the name suggests (K = knower, L = learner, M = K + L).

Verbs are triliteral. The 1st vowel, V1, represents the person of the 1st argument (K, L, M, or 3). V2 represents the direction (direct, inverse, or reflexive if bivalent). V3 represents the person of the 2nd argument (0 if none). The personal vowels are followed by /n/ (currently) when the argument is plural. The preceding applies to finite forms. For non-finite forms, V1 = 0 and a prefix is added which specifies the syntactical function and/or coreference. V2 and V3 are the same as before. Only finite forms are hierarchical.

Nouns have prefixes indicating combinations of number and determiner. Some nouns may have suffixes specifying the person and number of the possessor.

The syntax is probably head-modifier and verb-arguments, except that fronted arguments can appear. TAM and negation are marked by preverbal particles.

I haven't figured out the phonology, but I'm currently using i, e, a, and o as the vowels.
