I was doing a take-off of Eddy's definitions of "stromg command" and "weak command"; I do agree that the exact terminology is not terribly important, as long as the description of the language itself is clear and relatively easy to understand (indeed, as Jeff indicates, it's good for the terminology to "match" the language).

True. You've even inspired me to try my hand at a poly lang.
Indeed; I've found the discussions of polysynthesis on the board fascinating. I'd like to try my hand at a poly lang myself (and have a few meager notes already), but I also have non-poly langs I'd like to work on as well...
