When I was still in High School, I worked on a language with a very small inventory of phonemes: four consonnants: m f s k four vowels: a i o u For a reason that escapes me, /i/ had the allophone [e] at the end of words. The syntax was accusative, three cases: nominative-accusative-genitive, and auxiliaries like in English. I must have my notes on it at home if anyone is interested (oh! anyone in affirmative sentence :) ). Oh yeah, the language was called "amia" ['amia]. Christophe Grandsire |Sela Jemufan Atlinan C.G. ----> I would like to see it. Thinking of paucity of phonemes, there is a conlang named Jakelimotu. In the name all phonemes are used. I have no url, sorry.
