Modern Arabic has a literary device by which it
juxtaposes synonymns or near synonymns that share
similar word-shapes. I wonder if one could require all
nouns within a noun phrase to be of the same
word-shape? Do you use cognate objects/subjects in Old
Arabic? I think that doing so combined with
suffixaufnahme could be turned into a kind of noun
incorporation simply by dropping any anaphoric or
contextually unnecessary items and slurring the whole
predicate into one utterance. The cognates would then
be reduced to reduplicatin of the verbal root, and the
morphemes the carried by virtue of suffixaufnahme
would become verbal infixes. I mention this, becase I
think that's the route i'll take in my conlang.
