Howdy!  I've done a triconsonantal conlang myself.  It's a lot of fun.  I'
m even tempted, for god knows what reason, to do another (but with
different categories and overall grammar).

In any case, I think you may find Rick Morneau's essay on Arabic
morphology helpful.  I used it a lot as I was designing Czevraqis (not
Naracze), which I shall *not* point out as an example as it's too
messed-up.  :-p

Hope this helps!
