GrammarEdit

RootsEdit

Most, if not all Kaylian words are based off of three-letter roots. The roots generally represent concepts and can be inserted into "templates" called kh'moshit [χəmoʃit] to take different roles.

NounsEdit

Every noun has a neutral form (no article, singular) found by inserting its root in a khamosh [χamoʃ] (singular of kh'moshit). Most nouns' gender can be determined by their khamosh in the neutral form. -a-o- and -(ə)-u- are normally male, while -i-a- and -e-i- are normally female. -u-ei- is the most common indifferent khamosh (it can be either). Nouns decline for number (singular, plural, dual) and definiteness (none, definite, and negative) according to gender and khamosh (underline indicates syllable of emphasis).

Gender Khamosh Definiteness Singular Plural Dual
Male -a-o- N/A -a-o- -ə-o-it -ə-o-aj
Definite ha--o- ha--(ə)-it ha--(ə)-aj
Negative -al-o- -al--it -al--aj
-(ə)-u- N/A -(ə)-u- -u--ot -u--aj
Definite ha--u- ha--(ə)-ot ha--(ə)-aj
Negative -əl-u- -əl-u-ot -əl-u-aj
-u-e- N/A -u-e- -u--it -u--ij
Definite ha--e- ha--(ə)-it ha--(ə)-ij
Negative -əl-e- -əl--it -əl--ij
Female -i-a- N/A -i-a- -i--im -i--av
Definite ha--a- ha--i-im ha--i-av
Negative -il-a- -il--im -il--av
-e-i- N/A -e-i- -(ə)-e-im -(ə)-e-av
Definite ha--i- ha--e-im ha--e-av
Negative -əl-i- -əl--im -əl--av
-u-e- N/A
Definite
Negative
  • Dual is only for things that come in pairs - two apples is plural, while two legs (pair of legs) is dual.
  • Negative means none of that noun - no box.
