GrammarEdit

NounsEdit

The nouns in New Germanic will be different when using one of the four genders (feminine, masculine, neutral and other), the number (singular, plural or unknown) and eight cases:

  • Nominative which indicates the subject of a finite verb
  • Accusative which indicates the direct object of a verb
  • Dative which indicates the indirect object of a verb
  • Ablative which indicates movement from something, or cause
  • Genitive which indicates the possessor of another noun
  • Vocative which indicates an adressee
  • Locative which indicates a location
  • Instrumental which indicates an object used in performing an action

VerbsEdit

Verbs conjugate according to person, mood, tense and number. There are 3 persons in New Germanic

  • 1st person
  • 2nd person
  • 3th person

New Germanic has 3 moods:

  • Indicative indicates that something is a statement of reality or a fact
  • Subjunctive used in dependent clauses to discuss hypothetical or unlikely events, as well as to express emotion, opinion, wishes, polite requests, and necessity; also used in conditional sentences for both the conditions and consequences
  • Imperative used for orders and requests

Only a few tenses:

  • Present actions according at the time of speech
  • Future events occurring in the future
  • Past events that have occured in the past

And 3 numbers: singular, plural and unknown. Unknown is used when talking about, for example, people breaking into your house but you don't know how many people broke in. Then, you would say: "Brokde outh by hes" (outh being number unknown)

Number 1st person 2nd Person 3th Person
Singular -by -sy -gy
Plural -be -se -ge
Unknown -th -thy -tho

SyntaxEdit

The official word order as described in language documents is VSO, VerbSubjectObject. But because of the suffix system any word order can be used. If writing a formal letter, it is strongly advised to use VSO or SVO.
