Dear Ian, dear all,

verb-like inflection (tense and person marking) of nominal predicates is a well-known phenomenon in two (sub)branches of Uralic, Mordvin (Erzya/Moksha) and Samoyedic. 

See Rigina Turunen’s (now: Ajanki) PhD thesis on nonverbal predication in Erzya (http://urn.fi/URN:ISBN:978-952-10-6277-3 <http://urn.fi/URN:ISBN:978-952-10-6277-3>) and Lotta Jalava's PhD thesis which touches upon the issue of nonverbal predication in Samoyedic (http://urn.fi/URN:ISBN:978-951-51-1314-6 <http://urn.fi/URN:ISBN:978-951-51-1314-6> ), both with numerous further references. For Samoyedic, see also Wagner-Nagy & Viola 2009 (https://www.sgr.fi/en/items/show/1009 <https://www.sgr.fi/en/items/show/1009> ).
