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. -Duke
