So far, it isn't worked out. It would of course be nice if the number of arguments could be predicted from the morphology. Perhaps triliteral predicates have one argument, quadriliteral ones two, etc. The example sentence I give contains several unary predicates which are all triliteral, and one binary predicate which is quadriliteral. It is all *very much* work in progress, and it is merely a side project. The Albic and Pictic languages are more important to me, and then I have a job and various other interests besides conlanging, so don't expect too much too soon. Greetings, Jörg.
