Isolating syntax, agglutinating grammar
|Date:||Friday, April 7, 2006, 2:52|
Has anyone done a language where the structure is mostly isolating but
the grammar has the form of a more agglutinating language? In other
words, instead of case endings on a word, you would just have a
particle for each case?
One thing I like about this syntax is that it lets you combine cases
somewhat easily--just throw on more particles.
This might be an idea for past items on the list (namely isolating
Finnish). Mine works somewhat like this, but it doesn't have much
work on it yet as I'm currently living out of a hotel room for the
next couple days.
