Hi Everyone,
  I'm a little new to this stuff, so forgive me if my
editng and what not is horrid.
  I've been interested for some time in designing a
language with absolute/ergative case-marking for nouns
and a conjuct/disjunct verbal agreement for SAPs but a
typical direct-inverse agreement system for
nonSAPs(complete with 4th and 5th persons). I just
wanted to do something really different from what i'm
familiar with. Anyway, I thought I would throw this
out there and see if anyone had any suggestions on how
to work out such a system. Thanks,
