* I came up with a system of personal suffixes for the polysynthetic conlang. It's not exactly what I want esthetically, but it seems to work. It's so complicated, I don't know how to describe it, though. I think I'll have to use a large set of tables giving each combination of two consecutive suffixes.

I used a set of anticipatory assimilations for the vowels, blocked by two or more consonants. This changes a sequence of CV suffixes to something like C(VC(VC)) with changes to the stem as well. So that "You gave me them." comes out as something like <bolcilus>, assuming <bol> means "give".

Tense, mood, and aspect will be marked by prefixes. For the imperative mood, the 2nd person (and possibly the 1st person inclusive) suffixes become prefixes. I'm possibly using the project VOS system for tense (with definite distinguished from indefinite as well as perfective distinguished from imperfective).
