I think that'd just be a fusional polysynthetic language. Doesnt the idea of mutations undermine the idea of one-to-one mapping? If something has mutated, then it expresses both its original meaning and and the mutation's meaning, doesnt it? *Muke! -- E jer savne zarjé mas ne Se imné koone'f metha Brissve mé kolé adâ.
