    I'm not going to argue the general statement, but I don't think these
    are comparable. ahmnu for human is not identifiable, and one of the
    issues expressed even in English about creating these is that letters
    don't move too far away from their original location. Are you saying
    that krázlesttozótóágásl, the same swap of two adjacent characters
    done to huamn, is not identifiable? One swap for every six letters
    would be harder, but I think it would be a lot harder in English if
    you were using 25 letter words.

    I think your claim about grammatical relationships being the
    determining factor is untested and unproven; even if there is a
    difference, simple word length might very well be a dominant factor.
