i feel like you captured the essential concepts of speech (essential aspects, attributive links, discourse markers, etc.). detailing "usual asset= s" from "item one produces" etc. shows you have earnestly introspected the most important features of language for a long time with humble heart, beyond conventional and sterile categories. it is no common navelistic but a very wise and admirably structured conlang. BTW did you ever read an inuktitut grammar ? mathias
