i don't like semitic grammar so much so it's not one but do you know where i=20
could get the list of the arabic roots ?

i think any decent ial should feature at least 12 cases or so ;-). voices ar=
cases set into verbs and conversely :=20
ma-wa-kur =3D to make > ma-yi-kur =3D to be made
mawakur yi- =3D to make something
mayikur wa- =3D to be made by=20

don't need to have a "factive" mood. volitive and non-volitive is enough.=20
volitive is like Sally's volitional except it can be stuck to any voice or=20
case (and it's called volitive like in french ;-). the factive mood was h- o=
he-. now he- is only negative. i still have another few points to check.
