By this, I'm asking whether there are languages (natural or constructed) which somehow function without verbs, relying instead upon other types of words like prepositions or something like that.

Ultimately, the purpose of verbs is to describe the relationship between the subject, direct object, and indirect object. Is there a language that doesn't have a verb system, but instead describes this relationship between these three aspects differently?

Thank you!
