About Maypaw another  Mañi baby

features include:
- fused evidentiality/subject marking
- clusivity only marked on transitive verbs
- future/present distinction marked only by stem tone change
- a plural clitic that goes wherever it wants and fuses to whatever it wants
- register tone system with three registers (high modal, mid creaky, low modal)
- frankly indecent amounts of <z> /ʒ/
