Noun Genders

It's grammar is similar to French and Spanish, except adjectives, like in English, come before the noun. I have created conjugations for the pronouns, and three different grammatical genders:

  • Living - Anything living; plants, animals, cells, etc.
  • Non-living - Anything that is non-living. Furniture, woodwinds, and most everything made from living things EXCEPT foods.
  • Once-living - Anything that has once lived, from food to dead grass, etc.

I tried to prevent any exceptions, and so far, the only one is with Non-living nouns and Once-living nouns.

Below is a chart of the definite and indefinite articles:

Gender Definite Indefinite
Living Te Ten
Non-living Ta Tan
Once-living Tu Tun

The only way to indicate what grammatical gender a noun is, in written form, is by the endings. All words I have came up with have a certain ending:

  • Living: -i
  • Non-living: -a
  • Once-living: -u

Conjugating Ninglisian Verbs

Verbs are conjugated just like Spanish; take the last two letters off, and replace it with correlating letters. All verbs end a certain way for each preposition:

Preposition Verb Endings (Replaces Last 2 Letters)
Ni (I) [ni:] -i
Nu (you) [nu:] -us
Nun (you plural) [nu:n] -un
Nim (him) [ni:m] -em
Nin (her) [ni:n] -en
Nit (it) [ni:t] -et
Nis (we) [ni:s] -emes
Nils (they) [ni:ls] -elles

For example:

  • Ni vevi = I drink. The verb Vevar gets conjugated indicates that I drink.

Here is the verb Vevar conjugated into the other forms:

  • Ni vevi = I drink
  • Nu vevus = You drink
  • Nun vevun = You all drink
  • Nim vevem = He drinks
  • Nin veven = She drinks
  • Nit vevet = It drinks
  • Nis vevemes = We drink
  • Nils vevelles = They drink

Here are some basic verbs to learn:

  • Vevar = To drink
  • Manzar = To eat
  • Sevar = To be
  • Tenar = To have

Notice the relativity of "Tenar" to the Spanish verb "Tener," and the "Manzar" to the French verb "Manger"

Describing Yourself

  • Ombri = Man; Male
  • Monbri = Woman; Female
  • Omesbri = Boy
  • Monesbri = Girl

If you were a boy, and were describing yourself as a male, use "Ombri," but if you were describing yourself as a boy, use "Omesbri." Same for Girl and Female.

Mentioned above, you see "Sevar," or to be. This is used describing your physical characteristics and personality.

  • "Ni sevi ten ombri." = I am a man. Notice ten acting as the indefinite article. A man
  • "Nin seven ten monbri." = She is a woman.
  • "Nit sevet ten omesbri!" = It's a boy!

Plurals

You may have noticed in "Describing yourself" that there was a little problem. We cannot be a man. That wouldn't make sense.

  • "Nis sevemes ombri." = We are man. This makes no sense. To make it plural, add s.
  • "Nis sevemes ombris." = We are men.

To make a word ending with a vowel consonant, add -s.

  • "Nis sevemes ombris." = We are men
  • "Nun sevun monesbris." = You all are girls.

Animals

  • Gasti = Cat
  • Perroni = Dog
  • Pahani = Bird
  • Peski = Fish
  • Kabali = Horse
  • Vaki = Cow
  • Serroni = Pig
  • Poli = Chicken

As you may notice, all of these words end with I, because they are living.

  • Ni teni te poli.=I have the chicken.
  • Nis tenemes tes vakis.=We have the cows.
  • Nu tenus ten peskis.=You have the fish.
