Word Order: Subject-Abj-Object-Abj-Abj-Verb Verbs and Nouns are not inflected nor given tense. Nouns do not have gender. All words are monosyllabic. There are no definite nor indefinite articles. To distinguish an action that occurred in the past from an action presently occurring, one uses certain words pertaining to time, as particles; words like, today, right now, or some day. Adjectives always follow nouns, while preceding verbs. There are 5 tones, that being: rising, falling, rising-falling, falling-rising, and flat tone. These 5 tones will be represented by the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Particles are used in this language to distinguish between the doer of the action and the one who was affected by the doer's actions. PHONOLOGY
