NounsEdit

      All of the pure syllables (1 syllable items) are either nouns, postpositions, or affixes. 

VerbsEdit

      In order to make a verb, you take a noun or other lexcat and attach an obligatory tense marker and an optional mood marker. 

SyntaxEdit

        S (io) V O

      Postpositional phrases can go next to the phrase they describe, but otherwise there is a specific order. It is the common SVO order, but interestingly, the indirect object always comes before the verb. The language is at a crossroads. All of its descendents are SOV, so it is about halfway there.
