Thank you, Krawnzo kay Stivezo! Just what I was looking for. Here's another I thought of. Analagous to Tceqli/Guaspi, but all morphs in the shape nTnS, where T is a tall letter and S a short one. bdfhklt being the physically tall letters. So, a _typographical_ scheme rather than a phonetic one. Or, you could include as talls letters that hang below the line also -- gjpqy. Then you could have words like go, blu, krawn, la, flasixmovrucaze, etc. I know you're right, Stivezo, about final consonants being liable to dropping out. However, there are plenty of languages, I think, that hold on to them tightly. English mainly does, and German and Russian. So I'd still like to fool around with maybe a nCVC form. Of course, you'd try to end them as much as possible with nasoliquids anyway. Then you could have nC(nVC)VL, where you have one or more consonants followed by a vowel- nasoliquid, with zero or more VC combinations in the middle. To make that right, you really need to have a three-way distinction. I mean, unlike Tceqli, that just classes the nasoliquids as vowels, you'd have to have three - consonants, vowels, and nasoliquids, to keep morphs from beginning with a nasoliquid. OTOH, having a sparse, two-way distinction has a certain elegance to it. You know, that nC(nVC)VL shape would make multisyllables a pretty easy thing, while eliminating, of course, all CV words. Darn. You just _gotta_ have CV's. They're so....straightforward.
