Latinior (More latin) is a constructed language derived from the latin. It is a highly inflectional, synthetic language whose words are borrowed directly from the original latin lexicon.
The language changes the latin verbal system to make it more regular.
Being an inflectional language, Latinior's verbs are obtained by adding to the stem, which is borrowed by a normal latin dictionary, suffixes to specify the tense and the person of the action.
Nouns and adjective, which both belong to the same part of the speech, are inflected by gender, number and case. There are two cases: nominative and accusative and sometimes the name may lack of the suffix (ie. Nominative of neuter nouns). There are three genders, masculine, feminine and neuter and two numbers, singural and plural.
Latinior's stems are obtained by subtracting the classical genitive suffixes from the genitive entry on the dictionary. The stem can be applied with every gender, even if it doesn't make any sense it will be grammatically correct.
Ex. Urbs, urbis (city) becomes urbs, urbem, whose stem is urb-. The neuter nominative is taken as it is, and the accusative case is obtained by adding -em to the stem.
Ex. Pater, patri (father) becomes patrus, patrum, whose stem is patr-. The masculine nominative is obtained by adding -us to the stem and the accusative by adding -um. Matra, matram does exist, but is also correct to use Patr-a, patr-am to refer to the mother (And you can talk about the father by using Matrus, matrum).
