the question is rather : why 1-, 2- or 3-valency-mapping all over the world,
in ANY language and not 4, 5 or 6, etc. ?
THAT is the tremendously interesting fact i wonder since i'ved learned and
used foreign, "exotic" languages.
there are 3 "core slots" as joshuah shinavier would say.
so why try to occult that universal reality and fodder myths of mathematical=
driven, pseudo-linguistical myths of "logical" binary valency-mapping instea=
"LINGO-MERMAID NOT DEAD"
it's time conlangers take linguistic power.
(hint to our fresh and brilliant american universitary fellow conlangers ;-)
