I've been working on a VSO, Head-Modifier sketch Nov06A. The genitive construction for 3rd person possessors turns out to be
GEN  Possessor  Possessum
However, if the possessor isn't 3rd person, the genitive marker GEN is conjugated like a verb (with no possessor phrase). Has anyone seen a natlang that works exactly the same way?

Also, is there such a term as "anticlitic", to refer to a word that's phonologically separate but always appears with a particular word class?
