Writing SystemEdit

[c] is sounded as /k/ before a- or o-like sounds, and as [s] before e- or i- like sounds.  For purposes of this sound change, an apostrophe is considered an i-like sound.

GrammarEdit

NounsEdit

Nouns exist in two classes and are locked into their respective class.

Nex - Name (I)

Fraro - Chair (II)

I Erg I Acc I Abs II Erg II Acc II Abs
Singular Nox Nøx Nex Frar Frarø Fraro
Plural Noki Nekî Noxcez Frari Frarî Frarez

VerbsEdit

Verbs also come in two classes.  Each class has their own, analogous conjugations.  Unlike nouns, verbs can change classes.  Changing a verb's class either negates it or reverses its meaning, if possible.  Otherwise, class changes aren't allowed.  The irregular verbs don't negate through class changes but instead have their own negated forms.

Type AEdit

The key difference between Type A and Type E verbs is their affixes.  Type A verbs use the affixes -ala, -asa, and ci-. E'davca - To talk

E'davca Past Present Future Conditional

Progressive Davcalá Davcala Davcalâ Davcalä
Perfect Davcasá Davcasa Davcasâ Davcasä
Irrealis Cidavcá Cidavca Cidavcä

Type EEdit

Type E uses the affixes -ele, -ase, and ci. Etadopte - To plan (intransitive)
