VerbsEdit

Verbs all start with (di)-zá.

When a word like "pé" (towards) is used the object is before the tense if if it is just a pronoun.

Example:

  • (di)- záráspá [S] pé [O] nu[T] - to love (verb+emotion+good+[S]+towards+[O]+time+[T])
  • (di)- záre [S] nu[T] [O] - to have / to be / to be in a state of (verb+state+[S]+time+[T]+[O])
  • S- subject
  • O- Object
  • T- Tense

Tenses Edit

Tenses are put after the "nu" word in the verbs.

Tense Word
Present vó (start)
Future vén(continue)
Past kná (end)
Present Continuous vóvén
Past Continuous knávén
Present Perfect vókná
Past Perfect knákná

SyntaxEdit

When it has a pronoun the verb word absorbs it into the formation of the verb.

  • I loved her : di záráspá má(I) pé sipá(Her) nukná

To form a question simply put the word "dizé" which means lit. "question" into the beginning of the sentence.

  • Did I love her? : dizé di záráspá má pé sipá nukná?

If there are more than one verb in the sentence, the tense is put behind the first verb that agrees with it, also the "and" particle to join clauses is not used in this language.

  • Di(si)má dinuvén dizáhi dizávó dizákubá ditsámápá
  • Di(si)má(I [subject]) dinuvén(tense future) dizáhi(bind) dizávó(initialize) dizákubá(input) ditsámápá(You object)
  • I shall bind, initialize and input you

If the subject of the sentence is also the object of the sentence we don't mark it nor repeat it.

  • Dimá dinuvén dizáhi dizávó dizákubá
  • Dimá(I [subject+object]) dinuvén(tense future) dizáhi(bind) dizávó(initialize) dizákubá(input)
  • I shall bind, initialize and input myself
