" Definition of a word:
Phonological Vowel harmony
So how would a NLF2DWS fused symbol (or set of symbols, or whatever
you'd call the thing) fit? It would not be phonological in any sense
(perhaps one can create graphical analogs?). And because of the
fusion, it would be both interruptible and internally unstable; dunno
For that matter, can anyone suggest a method of doing wordless
language that does not involve a fusional 2dws? It's all I can think
of, but surely there are other means...
FWIW, I think it's worth putting aside the question about whether
particles are "real words" or not, unless we're to talk about a
language that would somehow be entirely composed thereof. (What would
it be like?)
*haven't read that one* How so?
