Oligoisolation is almost entirely theoretical. No natural language has oligoisolating properties; nevertheless it is present in some constructed languages, such as Toki Pona, and in an extreme case, Facilish.
Oligoisolating vs Oligosynthetic
In both oligoisolating and oligosynthetic languages, the prefix oligo- refers to the low morpheme count. However, their morphological structures are distinct and thus they are not synonymous. Oligoisolating languages are isolating languages which means there is a low morpheme to word count. Oligosynthetic languages are synthetic languages which means there is a high morpheme to word count.
- Oligosynthetic language
