 comments welcome...right now, just working on a rough draft.

 I was thinking about a conlang that follows the principle of Tagalog and
what may/maynot be a trigger...

 (my understanding is that Tagalog has, for example, one word that means "I,
you" or "I [acting upon] you").

 also, I've become given to understand that a trigger doesn't simply modify
a word (run/ran/running), but it changes the word's entire meaning.

 'ukku = I, you
 a  'ukku  ayn = I see you
 o  'ukku  ayn = I fear you
 u  'ukku  ayn = I seek (pursue) you

 I have more in my notepad...but I wanted to hear what you thought of the
