Basic GrammarEdit

Verbs:

The tense of a verb is determined by its auxiliary article. The article are respectively listed as such: Present-> ar, Imerfect-> eyr, Perfect-> yr, Pluperfect->æhyr, Future-> or, Conditional-> eor. The passive articles are ap, eyp, yp, op, and eop. Infinative verbs have no auxiliary articles but end in -en (or passive -eb). To form a yes/no question add the vowel "-w" to the end of the article. Thus ar would become arw. Verbs also inflect for person:

Singular Plural
First -e -ad
Second -isc -af
Third -edd -y


Here is an example of a verb; the word chæren "to love"

Present: Singular Plural
First ar chære ar chærad
Second ar chærisc ar chæraf
Third ar chæredd ar chæry

Gerunds are formed by adding no ending to the verb and using the definate article "na". Gerunds without the definate article forms the supine.

The active participle ending is -yg- with an adjective ending and the passive participle is -ydd-.

Infinitives take the ending -ehy or, if plural, ehyn.
