I planned on using little progressions in finals by
shifting from singular to plural to universal (I have
to tell you about that number later), eg.

/?/ --> /x/ --> /k/ (or maybe /g/)

I have to work out what those will look like.  I have
to carry them across 1st, 2nd, 3rd; sing, pl, univ;
and active, middle, passive--27 altogether.  It may
end up forcing the development of some irregular
