In my (dormant) speedtalk project Quetch (I am not sure yet whether it 
will be a loglang), I am planning to have only two parts of speech: 
content words (nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives) and relation words 
(prepositions, conjunctions).  A simple predicate consists of a content 
word followed by any number of arguments, which are content words linked 
to the head word by means of relation words.  Both classes of morphemes 
are just a single segment long: content words are consonants, and 
relation words are vowels.  There are compounds, though, and a mechanism 
for importing content words of any shape (such as proper names) from 
other languages, by enclosing them in glottal stops.
