LOL. Is Ebisedian that strange? ;-) Other than its odd vocabulary, that
is. OK, I grant you that the case system is a bit unusual, but it *was*
inspired by the desire to avoid the whole issue of active/passive and more
or less arbitrary marking of "indirect objects". (The whole deal about
noun cases in stative sentences is probably the strangest part of
Ebisedian, but I'm sorta reconsidering that, and it seems likely to be
revamped into something less obscure.)

"Fact is stranger than fiction."
You'll be surprised, maybe one day you'll run across some natlang that
exhibits similar characteristics to your scheme :-)
Life goes on...
