GrammarEdit

NounsEdit

Nouns start with the noun signifier, "na". Alterations to the signifier change the case of the noun. Example Shown below.

Case Signifier Example Word Exmaple Sentence
Subject (Nominative) na- nak You hit him
Object (Accusative) ne- nek He hit you
Indirect Object (Dative) ni- nik He gave you the ball.
Possessive Case nu- nuk He gave you your ball.

VerbsEdit

Verbs start with the verb signifier "sa". Verbs are conjugated simply by tense/use.

Tense Signifier Example Word Exmaple Sentence
Perfect Past Tense ésa- ésar I did.
Imperfect Past Tense usa- usar I was doing.
Present Tense sa- sar I am doing.
Perfect Future Tense se- ser I will do.
Imperfect Future Tense su- sur I will be doing.
Imperative/Gerund/Participle si- sir To do.

For a verb to act as a noun, simply add "na" (the noun signifier) before it (ex. na sar, to do) For a verb to act as an modifier, add "ka" (the modifier signifier) before it (ex. ka sar, doing)

Adjectives and AdverbsEdit

These parts of speech start with the modifier signifier "ka". Adjectives always directly follow the nouns they modify, unless they are being modified. Adverbs always come before the word they modify.

the good person

naget kabon


the very good person

Prepositions, Interjections, and ConjuntionsEdit
