About Wedokwa Quantity over quality / a breath of fresh air after all the research-intensive a posterioris I usually spend my time with. Spoken in a Death Valley-like environment.

Morphosyntactic goals:
direct-inverse alignment with prox/obv distinction and complex animacy hierarchy
free word order, not a lot of case-marking on nouns
infixing and other morphophonologically complex verb inflections
relative clause strategy collapsed with adjectives
genitive strategy collapsed with adpositions
middling degree of fusion
Sample of Wedokwa[view] Mīhvahji nāhhjej māhsvahji.

A cat is drinking milk.
