What have I done???!!!!

Oh my god! I have created a monster!!!!!!! 

I'm in the middle of restructuring Aredos (using Piotr Gasiorowski's useful little
guide to PIE verbs) and have discovered that, when finished, the Aredos verb
will have no less than 286 forms, and that's only if the participles aren't
declined (when fully declined across three numbers, eight cases and three
genders, the participles alone amount to 72 forms each. Four participles = 288
extra forms). In total, a single Aredos verb can have 570 different forms! AND
I've got five verbal conjugations!


(drowning in verbs- why did I decide to retain the dual and the optative????)

Ka yokonáu iti báyan: "cas'alyá abhiyo".

Ka tso iti mantabayan: "yama zaláyá
alánekayam la s'alika, cas'alika; ka yama
yavarryekayan arannáam la vácika, labekayam 
vácika, ka ali cas'alyeko vanotira."
