One problem* is organization, e.g. Tense needs to follow Clause Chains but Clause Chains needs to follow Tense. http://qiihoskeh.conlang.org/cl/ascii/C6/C6Intro.htm * besides those below Jeff On Mon, 10 Aug 2015 18:10:39 -0400, J S Jones <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > I know, you're all waiting for more examples in the documentation, but that > requires predicates in the vocabulary.
