Temporary, not complete or in finished form, by any means (ignore random
notes to self and highlighting etc.; the proto-forms are there mainly for my
own guidance but will probably stay), but I thought it a good idea to get
some feedback, in light of the recent discussion of "completeness". This is
a language with almost no productive derivational processes, aside from
compounding and a handful of affixes; consequently at this stage most of the
definitions are very simple, if not one-word. Presumably each entry could
later be amplified with exs. of usage.

The various "see XXX" cross refs. are the closest we have to derivation;
these are forms related usually by initial vs. final stress proto-forms with
attendant sound changes. I'm not 100% enthusiastic about such a process but
it seems reasonable.  Does anyone know-- does e.g. Chinese have such related
forms? Or other monosyl. isolating languages?

Looking forward to comments!!
