Swahili and other Bantu languages prefix the verb with a complex morpheme made up of the follwing sequence:
The agent’s (subject’s) noun-class (fusionally marking both its gender and its grammatical number);
The verb’s tense (maybe in some languages also one or more of its aspect, modality/mode/mood, voice, and/or polarity?);
The patient’s (object’s) noun-class (gender&number).
Really? I thought of that, but was told I could never make it work! I tried and ran into difficulty and decided my lang’s critics were right and gave up!For reference, levian10 is a triconsonantal root language in which the consonants of a root can be reördered for inflectional purposes.
If you can do it I will be filled with about equal parts curiosity, admiration, and envy!
Show me, please?
