Roiken is a VSO world ordered language. There's an exception allowing the adding of a ù to the end of the subject, thus putting it in front of the verb making it into a SVO order, but only in the case that the verb is working with a noun and not a pronoun. I should mention, it's also used mainly in poetry, and you will hear speakers 99.9% of the time use the traitional VSO object.

Verbs

Verbs when in their dictonary / infinitive form always end in œþ. Verbs conjugate as follows

1st person - œþ -> œž

2nd person - œþ -> œž

3rd person m - œþ -> œþ

3rd person f - œþ -> œþø

3rd person n - œþ -> œþīg

1st person plural - œþ -> œþæᵹ

2nd person plural m - œþ -> œr

2nd person plural  f- œþ -> œg

2nd person plural n - œþ -> œž

2nd person plural mix - œþ -> œ

3rd person plural m - œþ -> œþū

3rd person plural f - œþ -> œþūrg

3rd person plural n - œþ -> œþūma

3rd person plural mix - œþ -> œþūm

Tense

Roiken has five tenses. Present progresive, aroist (also known as present perfect), past, future, and future progressive. Present progressive follows the conjugation as shown above. All other tenses are marked by conjugating the verb and adding a particle. The participle for the verb in all tenses is the same. Only the particle changes.

The participle is as follows

a + verb + ėr

The particles are as follows

ᵹa - past tense

ƿa - aroist

þa - future

þé - future progressive

So the future progressive particle of çrazœþ (to grab) would end up being açrazœþér þé and the past tense would be açrazœþér ᵹa

Nouns

Nouns are split into five catagories, or in a sense, five genders. There are only the major three (masculine, feminine, neuter) genderwise, but the last two are exceptions that fit and conjugate as a neuter noun. The gender of a noun can be determined by the ending of the noun. Refer to the chart below for information on the endings that a noun may take.

Masculine Feminine Neuter one Neuter two Neuter three

Dative Ending ro ero ožo ᵹo īšo
Plural Accusitive Ending rþaro eþero øžo ᵹáo īšo
Plural Dative Ending rþaro eþero øžo ᵹáo

īšo

As you noticed, I didn't add the word for the indefinite article (a / an). This is because it doesn't follow traditional rules. The word is ᵹi, and is added to the end of the seperated by '. The ' mark indicates a small pause, not the size of a space, but not to the point of non-existance. For example, the word stick is "ᵹig", the world for a stick would be "ᵹiga'ᵹi", and the word(s) for the stick is "ƿåd ᵹiga".

Pronouns

The pronouns are as follows

Prounoun Nominative Accusitive Dative
I dò ti dò ti
You chi chi ti chi ti
He quor quor ti quor ti
She fåš fåš ti fåš ti
It çæw çæw ti çæw ti

We

dòtom dòtom ti dòtom ti

You all (m)

chito chito ti chito ti

You all (f)

chid chid ti chid ti
You all (n) chiþ chiþ ti chiþ ti
You all (mix) chiᵹo chiᵹo ti chiᵹo ti
They (m) quoror quoror ti quoror ti
They (f) quorad quarad ti quarad ti
They (n) quoræÿ quoræÿ ti quoræÿ ti
They (mix) quorgo quorgo ti quorgo ti

'I'n depth word order

As mentioned earlier, the traditional word order is VSO. However, the adding of the ending ù can arrange the noun, and only nouns (not pronouns) to a SVO order. This is higly unused, so I'm going to not use it at all in the demonstrations.
