Basic GrammarEdit

ArticlesEdit

There are only 3 articles; ssa, mau, and sson. They always come directly after the noun they are describing.

Ssa is the equivalent of 'the'. It is used when describing something specific. Ssa does not change gender.

Mau is the equivalent of 'a/an' for describing feminine nouns.

Sson is the other equivalent of 'a/an', except this is used for describing masculine nouns.

EXAMPLESEdit

mlau ssa

the cat


Бok sson

a dog


paunɛ mau

a cloud

NounsEdit

Nouns have two genders, masculine and feminine. Masculine nouns always end in one of the 20 consonants. When they become plural, they end in -ɛn. Feminine nouns always end in one of the 6 vowels. When they become plural, they end in -ɛnɛ. If the word already ends with ɛ, then just add -nɛ.

EXAMPLESEdit

iowɛ

flower


iowɛnɛ

flowers


goudh

bird


goudhɛn

birds

PronounsEdit

Pronouns have two genders and two ages. They are masculine-young, masculine-older, feminine-young, and feminine-older. 'They' and 'We', however, are only masculine and feminine. 'It' is classified as masculine, and is therefore used like 'he.'

There are 20 subject pronouns.

  • 'I' masculine-young = aun
  • 'I' masculine-older = hɛr
  • 'I' feminine-young = vissɛ
  • 'I' feminine-older = kou
  • 'We' masculine = Бousk
  • 'We' feminine = kamɛ
  • 'You' masculine-young= rin
  • 'You' masculine-older= dhauk
  • 'You' feminine-young= ssaunɛ
  • 'You' feminine-older= vossɛ
  • 'He' masculine-young= moup
  • 'He' masculine-older= at
  • 'She' feminine-young= hangɛ
  • 'She' feminine-older= dho
  • 'They' masculine = asoun
  • 'They' feminine = houi

Possessive pronouns:

  • 'My' masculine-young = aunɛt
  • 'My' masculine-older = hɛrɛt
  • 'My' feminine-young = vissɛdhɛ
  • 'My' feminine-older = koudhɛ
  • 'Our' masculine = Бouskɛt
  • 'Our' feminine = kamdhɛ
  • 'Your' masculine-young= rinɛt
  • 'Your' masculine-older=dhaukɛt

  • 'Her' feminine-young = hangɛ
  • 'Her' feminine-older = dhodhɛ
  • 'Their' masculine = asounɛt
  • 'Their' feminine = houdhɛ

HonorificsEdit

These are suffixes attached to people's names, or to pronouns when you do not know the person's name. They are never attached to your own name when you are speaking of yourself.

  • lɛss - used for people you don't know very well, regardless of sex or age.
  • Бɛnɛ - used for younger women you are familiar with.
  • Бɛl - used for younger men you are familiar with.
  • dhi - used for older females you are familiar with.
  • pzaun - used for older males you are familiar with.
  • nor - used for teachers, professors, and tutors, regardless of sex or age.

VerbsEdit

Verbs are not classified by sex. The verb is found at the very end of the sentence, regardless of the rest of the sentence.

Regular VerbsEdit

ConjugationEdit

Verbs are conjugated into Simple Present, Present Continuous, Simple Past, and Future tenses.

EXAMPLES of ConjugationEdit

ou dhou -- to run

dhou -- run

dhouhɛ -- running

dhoulan -- ran

dhoumau -- will run


ou tou -- to fly

tou -- fly

touhɛ -- flying

toulan -- flew

toumau -- will fly

Simple PresentEdit

The root word without 'ou'. When a verb follows a plural noun or pronoun, it becomes plural. Add -oun to the end to make it plural. If it ends in zh or oun, add -noun instead.

EXAMPLEEdit
  • aun pzɛk -- I(masculine-young) walk
  • hɛr pzɛk -- I(masculine-older) walk
  • vissɛ pzɛk -- I(feminine-young) walk
  • kou pzɛk -- I(feminine-older) walk
  • Бousk pzɛkoun -- We(masculine) walk
  • kamɛ pzɛkoun -- We(feminine) walk

  • moup pzɛk -- He(masculine-young) walks
  • at pzɛk -- He(masculine-older) walks
  • hangɛ pzɛk -- She(feminine-young) walks
  • dho pzɛk -- She(feminine-older) walks
  • asoun pzɛkoun -- They(masculine) walk
  • houi pzɛkoun -- They(feminine) walk

ConjuctionsEdit

  • and -- ipp
  • but -- wa
  • or -- aurɛ

Word OrderEdit

The typical word order for a simple sentence is as follows:

Noun-Adjective describing the noun-Adverb describing the verb-Verb

Which I generally abbreviate to:

N-ADJ-ADV-V

So that's what I'll be using when I talk about the sentence structure. I'll just be talking about simpler sentences until I've completely figured out the more complex stuff.

EXAMPLESEdit

The cat walked quickly.

Mlau ssa hac pzɛklan.

((cat the quick walked))
