I just checked Wikipedia for some typology terms. The examples given of
fusional languages were Latin and German. Latin I am quite familiar with,
so I understood well enough what was meant by the "tendency to 'squish
together' many morphemes in a way which can be difficult to decode."
I am curious whether fusional languages are a largely Indo-European
phenomenon, or whether they are found widely outside of the IE family?
