> Nova is my primary conlang. Its most important features are
a small morpheme base (ca.900) with words being generated through
oligo-synthesis; an analysis of the world as being a series of events
with word classes largely generated by the duration of the event;
heavily inflected but for non-traditional inflections; the linking of
related polar concepts (good > bad; rich > poor,etc.)into a single
morpheme which is in turn modified by degree morphemes to pin down
the meaning; vowels have inherent tones; a labiodental stop/nasal series
which I believe to be unique (but which probably isn't); an elaborate
series of morphemes for describing scents. There is probably more
to include here, but that will do for now.
