6  Morphology of Old Shókë

In this thought experiment, Old Shókë simply has not yet developed affixing or other word-building mechanisms. Utterances are built up using unmodified stock vocabulary words as building blocks, following a simple syntax (below). One of the primary developments of Middle Shókë and onward will be precisely the development of morphology.

That said, I am thinking of sho for singular you and shosho for plural you, and likewise for first and third persons – so perhaps where I’m going with this is that Old Shókë’s morphology will consist of, at least, some duplicative affixing for plural markers.
