PronounsEdit

English Lukan Posessive
I / We o / oye no / noye
You / Y'all vi / viye vin / viyen
He / She / It ci / xi / et cin / xin / net
They tiye tiyen
  • No difference between words like I/me, we/us, they/them, he/him. Pronouns are pluralized the same way as regular nouns by adding -ye to the end.


VerbsEdit

English Present Inf./Gerund Past Future
to be ik tik ikd ikolu
to have ab tab abd abolu
to do di tdi did diolu
to go ku tku kud kuhholu
to say soblo tsoblo soblod soblolu
to get, receive két tkét kétd kétolu
to make mek  tmek mekd mekolu
to know kno tkno knod knolu
to think pins tpins pinsd pinsolu
to take kab tkab kabd kabolu

Verbs are conjugated into pronouns simply by prefixing the pronoun to the beginning of the word. For example, the verb "to think" tpins:

I You He (future) They (past)
opins vipins cipinsolu tipinsd
Verb thing???? What's this called?
have ab
had abd
should xu
would olu
could pud
probably pa
might ma
probably could have papudab

For example the sentence "I probably should have left so she wouldn't have seen me" is probably like

O paxuhab eksd aú xi ni oluhab sirrd o.

The letter "h" is used between vowels that would otherwise make awkward dipthongs, I guess.

SyntaxEdit

ok heres some examples i guess The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog = Ko rrafti kafi kitsó cumpd uvo ko leqi togu. (no change)

yeah idk the syntax is weird sometimes but mostly it's the same as English
