VerbsEdit

Verbs in Paterin are highly regular. You can usually spot a Paterin verb right away as most of the verbs have the ending -im as well as it's position at the end of a sentence. For example, the verbs for 'to be', 'to come', 'to wait' and 'to tell' are rim, nim, unim and tayim respectively. Other less commong verb endings are -sci, -id and -at. These verbs are in the infinitive form as well as the present and affirmative. These verbs also have an easy, casual form, which involves removing the -im ending and replacing it with -a. This causes the verb to sound less formal and relaxed. Verbs take on suffixes to change tense, mood and aspects. Auxiliary verbs such as 'may', 'want', 'can' and 'should' ( sci, hest, pos and zoth respectively) come at the end of the sentence and maybe compounded with each other.

Common Verbs

give EGIM take LOHIM
say IM listen TORIM
go RUIM come ARIM
live ERIM die EZRIM


Huc ahurac lohim to min hucac basim minda Take this book and read it to me
Ser sin torim minor Even the sky listens to you
Cuithanhana ezrim mascir Everyone surely dies


Auxiliary Verbs/Pseudo Verbs
can POS need MIN
not THAR should ZOTH
want HEST could SORTH
must MUIN would MAYIL
like HO do (emphatic) ZOU
<command> MINDA uncertainty ISCOR
even MINOR definitely MASCIR


The verb RIM is quite a flexible verb in that new verbs can be created by using this verb as a base. RIM is frequently combined with adjectives to denote that the subject is that adjective. For example, the adjective for regal/king-like is Haricu and to be kingly/regal would normally become haricu rim. However, because of the high affinity for RIM to combine with other words especially adjectives, Haricu and Rim combine to become a new verb meaning to be kingly/regal/king-like, which is HARICRIM. Notice that the -u ending was dropped. Sometimes, the meaning of the adjective will change when it becomes a verb after combining with RIM. For example, Patau is the adjective for Right Side. When combined with RIM it becomes Patarim meaning to be a righty as in right-handed.

Adjective + RIM combinations
YATAU (left) + RIM (be) = YATARIM to be a lefty (writing, throwing, etc.)
UMU (alone) + RIM (be) = UMRIM to be lonely/alone
TOTU (other) + RIM (be) = TOTRIM to be the other one/to be the mistress
PATERU (paterin) + RIM (be) = PATERIM to speak paterin/to do as paterin do


Tense

There are are five tenses in Paterin: Present, Past, Future, Ancient and Eternal. The present tense consists of just the verb alone.

For example:

Sefira methan met rim You are my sister
Eril serta est Stars are in the sky (also: The star is in the sky)


  • RIM and EST both correspond to the English TO BE, however, EST is the Eternal form of RIM and is used to notify Location or Existence.

The Past Tense is created by adding the suffix -abam to the verb and describes the past from immediate to a long time ago. Depending on the situation, long time ago can mean 100 years to 1000 years. When talking past tense in the sense of someone's life, then long time ago roughly means 100 years. When talking about history, then long time ago roughly means 1000 years.

For example:

Theo sinranac midabam I saw the slaves
Hor eza cai, nimic taru rimabam The angels were sad because she died


The Future Tense is created by adding the suffix -ar to the verb and describes the immediate to long range future.

For example:

Huscin dimar ril I'll do it tomorrow!
Deo amandiltir ezaimar ril We will unite against the enemy!
  • RIL is a particle word Paterins use at the end of a sentence to express exclamation

The Ancient Tense is created by adding the suffix -abit to the verb and describes things long past. This is anything ranging from 1000 to several thousands of years ago relative to history and is used to describe time before time. The accent falls on the final syllable.

For example:

Cezulib adita ahasu rimabit The ancients have been here forever
Eril serta rimabit The stars have been in the sky


The Eternal Tense is created by adding the suffix -isai to the verb and describes things with eternal qualities or things that would normally not noticibly change. Examples are mountains, the elements or spirits.

For example:

Anuiril anuiru est Darkness is dark
Anuiril arcil est thar Darkness is not always evil

NumbersEdit

The Paterin number system is, unlike most numbering systems, based off the number 12 and its patterns. The following list lists the numbers from 0 to 12.
