Thank you very much!

Most of the features are inspired (at least in part) from subjects that have
cropped up on this list.  The language started off as a case system, modelled
loosely on Elamite, to which some simple directionals and a much more complex
and (from what I read recently) possibly pidgin-like pronoun system.

i feel like you captured the essential concepts of speech (essential
aspects, attributive links, discourse markers, etc.). detailing "usual =
assets"
from "item one produces" etc. shows you have earnestly introspected
the most important features of language for a long time with humble hea=
rt,
beyond conventional and sterile categories. it is no common navelistic
but a very wise and admirably structured conlang.
BTW did you ever read an inuktitut grammar ?
