  1. Possible basic templates for formatives:
  2.  
  3. (CxVf)? - CrVs+ - C◆ - VCd* - (Vc=’Cb?)?
  4. (CxVf)? - CrVs+ - CVd* - C◆ - (Vc=’Cb?)?
  5. Vf? - CrVs+ - CVd* - (Cc-(Vx=’Cb?)?)?
  6. Cxf? - VsCr+ - VCd* - (Vc=’Cb?)?
  7.  
  8. ⟨?⟩: Zero or one of the preceding element
  9. ⟨*⟩: Zero or more of the preceding element
  10. ⟨+⟩: One or more of the preceding element
  11.  
  12. [Morpheme list]
  13. • _x: 4 Contexts (If a consonant, then consider [’/h/y/w]) + maybe Mood?
  14. • Vf: 3 Functions, 2 Essences, 4 Perspectives, 2 Relations (48 forms)
  15. • Cxf: 4 Contexts, 3 Functions, 2 Essences, 4 Perspectives, 2 Relations (192 forms)
  16. • Cr: Root
  17. • Vs: Pattern + Stem + Designation + Format (180 forms)
  18. This slot together with the Root slot can be repeated ad infinitum.
  19. For formally distinguishing this vowel slot from that of Derivational Suffixes in case of Incorporation, non-null Format should be marked with a form forbidden in Derivational Suffixes; a form like -V[’/h/y/w]V- might be appropriate here (A simple consonantless -V- would be used when Format is null). A form like -CV’VCV- would be parsed as two CV root/stem/pattern/designation complexes separated by a Format -’V- infix (such an infix would probably be able to hold more information than the single category of Format, so we could cram in some other category relevant to the incorporated root).
  20. • _d: Derivational Suffix (including suffixes for Version, Modality, Valence(?), Mood(?), Phase, Aspect, Extension, Configuration+Affiliation)
  21. • C◆: ??? (Possibly Valence or Mood or Configuration+Affiliation…)
  22. • _c: Case / Illocution / Validation / Sanction
  23. (Case and Illocution being mutually exclusive, Validation/Sanction applying only to the Assertive Illocution.)
  24. • Cb: Bias
