Nouns Edit

Gender Edit

Nouns occur in one of two genders: animate and inanimate. A noun's gender is almost completely arbitrary, except that living people and animals can be assumed to have animate gender most of the time. Abstract nouns (cf English tion/ment/ing) are almost always inanimate.

Inanimate nouns will commonly end in:

-no, nu, ille, meho, o, u, e, hine

Animate nouns will commonly end in:

-a, i, y, n, ng, h, ife

Definiteness Edit

There is no indefinite article in Rang-Masunhow. The definite article is the suffix -ya

Masy (person) - Masya

Keng (fish) -Kengya

Firu (house) Firuya

The definite suffix follows all other suffixes

Number Edit

Rang-Masunhow has three numbers: singular, dual, and plural. However most nouns cannot exist in all three numbers. Some nouns only have a dual form and not a plural, and vice versa. A few nouns cannot be counted and cannot be dual or plural. All nouns may be singular. The numbers are declined according to gender.

Animate Inanimate
Dual -(w)ah -(w)oy
Plural -(w)ang -(w)oy
