I'm very much looking forward to seeing these. :-)

Nice! I've played with this in some conlangs of mine. Actually, some allow tense markers on nouns, namely those that don't distinguish nouns and verbs: Qthyn|gai -- oops it's only one! Tyl Sjok, and I think Fukhian, also recently discovered to not distinguish nouns and verbs either, both don't have grammatical tense at all.

Again, I wonder what those will be. The maximum I did was three, in Qthyn|gai -- no, wait, those are just syntactical re-organisations not changing focus, so they are no voices. Five seems a lot to me. Or are those 'voices' really triggers? Curious! **Henrik
