Georgian verb grammar, which has polysynthetic features (the language itself
isn't polysyntethic but is strongly inflected nonetheless).>>

Hey, I'm doing one of these guys too!   Mainly influenced by the grammar of
this language I got (Eastern Canadian, though I'm not sure what it's called:
Inuvialuktun?   Siglituun?), but also has drawn inspiration from Georgian and
Middle Egyptian.   I don't have much on the web, since I'm still working on it,
but the phonology's up:

(The name's a play on "epic" and "Yup'ik".   I'd call it a portmanteau, but
the /q/ came from me.   Maybe I'm the one holding the suitcase?)
