i am under the impression that the particular strategies proposed by
the human language technology camp are not in anyway related to the
intralinguistic system of polysynthesis.  rather the "rules" or parsing
strategies that are applied towards generating surface forms or what
have you are a consequence of the programming language itself and have
very little to do with polysynthetic systems.  i have no strong
position on this either way, its just my impression.  in the end it
seems that "speed" and "access" are all that matters.

living and breathing polysynthesis,
