Peter Bleackley scripsit:

> Suppose we then have the nouns slf (I), kns (dog), skl (bone), tld (child)
> and the verbs e_a_ (have) _i__ (give) __uo (undergo) oa_e (receive), then
>

> I-have child-receive I-give dog-undergo child-give bone-undergo dog-receive

Sounds syntactically like an only somewhat exaggerated version of Chinese,
