GrammarEdit

Word OrderEdit

The Word order is essential to the syntax of Nûraic. Instead of cases to express subjects, agents, and objects, Nûraic uses order designation. Every sentence begins with 1-2-3-verb, where 1, 2, and 3 are nouns or pronouns. Verbs, in addition to voice, mood, and tense, conjugate for subject and object (or for just subject.) After the main verb comes the rest of the sentence; namely, the words, phrases, and clauses that modify the main verb or any of the main nouns. These words, phrases, and clauses are "declined" to show what they are modifying.

VerbsEdit

Verbs conjugate for voice, mood, tense, and designation (see word order above).
