Long ago when the world was new…

Umu had no case. Whenever a verb had only one argument, that argument was the victim of that action. Victim being either the object of transitive verbs or the core argument of intransitive verbs. I moved away from the idea because I fear my love of pro-drop would suffer.

Then cases came into the mix. (I suppose it had always been there since the script has a built in vowel shift / vowel harmony feature). First the genitive and the ergative were combined. And then…

Nothing…

I suppose I didn’t like the idea.

I’m going back to the original.
