I've made quite a bit of progress on Q-OVS or Ŋovasi etc. but the grammatical voice system is still giving me fits. Basically, each type of verb has its own distinct set of aspect suffixes. To form a passive or omit an object, the verb switches to the set of a lower valence verb. This works fine for basically dynamic bivalent verbs, but not for static or trivalent verbs. It might be solved by adding more classes, but that means more of the classifier suffixes are assigned to verbs, and there are plenty already. I have eliminated one aspect by adding an autocausative suffix and I'm thinking of adding a passive suffix where needed.
