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,
