speaking of natlangs...

Speaking of natlangs, I was looking for the names of several:

one that lacks sentential embedding

one that has only one kind of sentential embedding

one whose embedded clauses are difficult to categorize neatly into
noun-modifying, complement, and adverbial clauses.

If I get the names of such languages, my upcoming projects might be more

I haven't been creative with embedded clauses.   In fact, I botched or
neglected the embedding in most of my conlanging before I got some info from
a linguist back in the mid-nineties.  Hence my query.

As for conlangs that fit the above descriptions, I would prefer thumbnail
descriptions of the embedding systems or links to the relevant websites
along with the names.

Love this list,

Jim G.
