I did that too, altho I had a slight twist, instead of front-back harmony, as exists in Turkish, I had a height-based harmony, thus all vowels being high, middle, or low (thus, kitusi, ketose, and ka"tosa" [I don't remember exactly what the orthography was] would all be possible, but *kitesi wouldn't). Unfortunately, I don't have my notes on it anymore. :-( I know of no natlang with that kind of harmony, but I'd be very surprised if there *weren't*. -- Happy that Nation, - fortunate that age, whose history is not diverting -- Benjamin Franklin ICQ #: 18656696 AIM screen-name: NikTailor
