I tried to work on something more naturalistic and it was too hard now, so I'm trying out a simple agglutinative sketch (Aug17) with a couple possibly interesting features. The first is a direct-inverse system with a hierarchy modified by honorifics: 2 > 3 honorific > 1 > 3 animate > 3 inanimate (simplified). The other is polite speech using nominalized content verbs. The main issue for that is working out a complete syntax for the polite mode.
