I haven't felt like doing any serious conlanging lately, but I did work a couple hours this afternoon on the latest version of MNCL (6 or 7).

The MNCL morphosyntax mostly allows free word order in both clauses and phrases. Non-final words in a phrase, whether nouns, determiners, or other modifiers end in -o while the final word takes a case-ending, such as -a (absolutive) or -u (ergative). The primary verb of a clause takes the ending -e. This is all more or less true for all versions of MNCL. There are other endings for secondary verbs and/or additional cases. One exception to the free word order is that a relative clause must begin with the relative pronoun and end with the clause terminator pronoun.

One thing I have to decide is how much of the morphemes (roots and suffixes) are to be carried forward from previous versions. I'm redoing the TAM, so that will mostly change.
