I'd like to join in if I may to say that my latest is also strictly isolating.
I haven't remarked on it because I figured that most people here would be
bored with it. Hikka, is also mono-syllabic since its the latest developement
of my Ok theme. What I mean by that is that almost all of my languages have
been a further developement of my original language, Ok. Its structure is
C(C)V(L)(M)(N)(R) and its word order is SOV with modifiers preceding. Verb
tence is indicated by context.
