Morphic language

Morphic language aimes to understand how the morphology may be generated from a parsimonious set of elementary objects, relations and operations. It therefore consists of three things: 1, a minimum setup, made up of a carrier space and a randomised ongoing process; 2, a syntax, that is a set of elementary objects, relations, and operations capable of being combined to form rule structures to restrict the randomness of the minimum setup; and 3, a syntax-rule, which ideally should exhaust itself against some natrual or logical limit.
