Dallza is the name

Well, I've been working lately and I've come up with a few new things for
my conlang.  In addition to a few new words, I've been working on the

While I was reviewing the  sounds for my language, I noticed the absence of
a sound equivalent to the letter "b" in English.  Is this sound in every
language?  Not that it is necessary that I should have a sound specifically
for this, but I was just wondering.

I would like to set up the grammar for my language, Dallza (that's the name
I decided on), to make it an isolating language, like Chinese.  Does anyone
know much about isolating languages?  The other types of languages I might
use later.  Does an isolating language have to be analytical? Or can it be
synthetic?  Really, I just need some general information on isolating
laguages, some specifics would be useful, I guess, but there are some
things I'd like to make up for myself.  Lastly, I'd like to ask if it is
possible to mix two types of languages.  For instance, if I made a language
to have some inflections and be isolating still.  This doesn't make much
sense to me now, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

Any help would be appreciate.


PS Happy New Year already.  :)
