SettingEdit

As Miri'e slowly began merging with Colossian to form High Colossian, Hesilinn began going extinct. The language survived only as an occult language, taught only to few, and as a means of safe communication. Those that learned it had to go through rigorous training to be initiated in the language. Those that speak it are highly revered.

AdverbsEdit

"Savas nere tona" - You're more beautiful than I

'Sav' (you are) is combined with '-nas'. The 'n' is cut, because Hesilinn doesn't allow most consonant clusters.

'nere' - is a comparative adverb reflecting back at a 2nd person singular verb. (Could also seem to be a nominative singular adjective (see note)

a - is the 1st person nominative singular pronoun, it is combined with 'ton' (than) to form 'tona'.


  • Note: If 'nere' was a nominaative singular adjective it would render the following sentence: "You are more than beautiful I". Although it seems to be saying something

"You are more than beautiful I" would be "Savas tona nere". Usually, it doesn't matter much where the adjective goes,

but in this kind of situation it could be confused with an adverb, therefore the rule of thumb is to have the adjective

follow directly after the noun it refers to. (Poets often make good use of this.)
