New Ideas... group project?

I've been thinking in some new ideas about a new language with no part of
speech disctintion for words themselves but a functional inflection.

The idea is not having a verb-noun disctintion, any word would function as
either subject, object,  predicate, location or modifier.  The disctiontion
in a phrase would be held by an inflection, like a case afix, and other
modifiers, like tense, number or evidence would be given as afixes.  A word
acting as object could have a tense mark, as a word acting as predicate
could have a number mark.

Any sugestions to this?  I wouldn't like it to be too aglutinative... I've
think in biliteral or triliteral roots.

Idea is to make it speakable for human beings, and roots should be
selfsegregating from modifiers.
