Friedish has become the leading language of international discourse and the lingua franca in many regions and in professional contexts such as trade.

The Friedish use the same grammatical order than English.

GrammarEdit

NounsEdit

Friedish nouns are only inflected for number and possession. New nouns can be formed through derivation or compounding. They are semantically divided into proper nouns (names) and common nouns. Common nouns are in turn divided into concrete and abstract nouns, and grammatically into count nouns and mass nouns.

Nouns ending by a vowel mark the plural with an ending in -in and the nouns which ending by a consonant mark the plural with an ending in -e.

VerbsEdit

The verbs can take six forms, all the verbs are regular except at past and the verb "zvijrse" (to be).

example with the "téér" (to take) and "alsje" (to love)

Infinitive Plain present Past action parciple past participle future
téér téér trees téérig téért vij téér
alsje alsje alseude alsjig alsjet vij alsje

SyntaxEdit

Modern Friedish syntax language is moderately analytic.[168] It has developed features such as modal verbs and word order as resources for conveying meaning. Auxiliary verbs mark constructions such as questions, negative polarity, the passive voice and progressive aspect.

Friedish syntax is exclusively subject–verb–object (SVO). The combination of SVO order and use of auxiliary verbs often creates clusters of two or more verbs at the centre of the sentence like in English.

In most sentences Friedish only marks grammatical relations through word order. The subject constituent precedes the verb and the object constituent follows it. The example below demonstrates how the grammatical roles of each constituent is marked only by the position relative to the verb:

Dël kande (S) buis (V) dël wåme (O) : The dog bites the man

Dël wåme(S) buis(V) dël kande(O) : The man bites the dog
