I saw a good description of it's polysyntheticism on the net once, but I
don't remember where. Mohawk and Cheyenne are good examples of polysynthetic
languages, though. Most of Kûtêlku and N!à's grammars is based on Mohawk,
though there are elements from the Khoisan languages as well as other sources
in the grammar as well.
