Ah, funny. Mood/Evidence goes in the same place in S11, too, but I think generally, S11 will not by agglutinating to a high degree. Maybe some derivational stuff will be there.

Aha, I see. Morphology, and especially derivational morphology is not yet decided for S11. But from the experiences with Qthyn|gai I think I learned to like that kind of derivation. But the incorporation will definitely not go that far. I hope I will find more time for conlanging soon -- S11 currently makes not much progress. **Henrik
