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= ly driven, pseudo-linguistical myths of "logical" binary valency-mapping instea= d=20 ? "LINGO-MERMAID NOT DEAD" it's time conlangers take linguistic power. (hint to our fresh and brilliant american universitary fellow conlangers ;-)
