Thanks, Jim. I re-read them with enjoyment. I was kind of thinking of something sort of like that, but couldn't be sure, at the level of abstraction at which I was working (i.e., a lot of it in my head), that I could get it to work. Does anyone know of any natlang, or any successful conlang, that employs any of the methods in either of those two posts, or in my initial post to this thread? Does anyone have a reasoned opinion as to which method would be most practical? Or are all the methods suggested so far equally practical? Or equally impractical? Can anyone suggest another method, especially one which has been used in a natlang or in a successful conlang? --- Thanks again, Jim. And anyone else who replies. eldin
