GenderEdit

Masculine nouns end in a consonant. Feminine nouns end in a, ä, e, o, and ö. Neuter nouns end in all other vowels.

Articles and DemonstrativesEdit

English Masculine Feminine Neuter
A/An et en ei
The -t -n -ne
This det den dai
That dat dan da
English Masculine Feminine Neuter
A/An (pl) ete ene ie
The (pl) -et -ne -n
These dete dene dei
Those date dane das

Articles are invariable to case. These articles are assumed to be in nominative case. If needed, e can be used as a connecting vowel for the definite article when another case is used.

Noun CasesEdit

There are four cases: nominative, accusative, genitive/dative, and prepositional. They are very simple to decline. The definite article precedes the case marker when singular, and follows when plural.

Singular Masculine Feminine/Neuter
NOM none none
ACC -er -t
GEN/DAT -es -s
PRE -en -n
Plural Masculine Feminine/Neuter
NOM -en -n
ACC -ere -te
GEN/DAT -ese -se
PRE -ene -ne

Exception: In masculine case, with words ending in "d", the "e" is not needed for accusative and genitive/dative cases. Examples with hund (dog, declined as if it were a normal noun), rosa (flower), and carro (car):

hund Sg. NOM Sg. ACC Sg. G/D Sg. PRE Pl. NOM Pl. ACC Pl. G/D Pl. PRE
A/An et hund et hunder et hundes et hunden ete hunden ete hundere ete hundese ete hundene
The hundet hundeter hundetes hundeten hundenet hunderet hundeset hundenet
This det hund det hunder det hundes det hunden dete hunden dete hundere dete hundese dete hundene
That dat hund dat hunder dat hundes dat hunden date hunden date hundere date hundese date hundene

The rosan rosanet rosanes rosanen rosanen rosanete rosanese rosanene
This den rosa den rosat den rosas den rosan dene rosan dene rosate dene rosase dene rosane
That dan rosa dan rosat dan rosas dan rosan dane rosan dane rosate dane rosase dane rosane
carro Sg. NOM Sg. ACC Sg. G/D Sg. PRE Pl. NOM Pl. ACC Pl. G/D Pl. PRE

This dai carro dai carrot dai carros dai carron dei carron dei carrote dei carrose dei carrone
That da carro da carrot da carros da carron das carron das carrote das carrose das carrone

VerbsEdit

Verbs are inflected only by tense, not by person or number. All infinitive verbs end in the suffix -er. The infinitive also doubles as a gerund.

Conjugation:

present tense: -er to -en

i.e. Je runnen. (I run)

past tense: -er to -ed

i.e. Du runned. (You ran)

future tense: vil + verb without -er

i.e. Je vil runn. (I will run.)

imperfect tense: vas + infinitive

i.e. Je vas runner å storenen ja en biciclet mi hitted. (I was running to the store and a bike hit me)

past participle tense: had + past tense verb

i.e. Je had alredij pörsed melketet ven mi papa spoked wie åg pörser biskitenet älma. (I had already bought the milk when my father said we should also buy cookies)

AdjectivesEdit

Adjectives have a base form ending in a consonant, which can take on an ending for each gender. They connect to the beginning of the noun described, and do not vary by number.

Masculine Feminine Neuter
-i -a -e

Examples with the adjective blak (black) and hund, rosa, and carro.

blak + hund blak + rosa blak + carro
blakihund blakarosa blakecarro

Pronouns and PossesionEdit

NOM ACC G/D/P
1S Je Me Mi
2S Du Ti Tu
3S Re Ra Ru
1P Wie Ås År
2P Due Di De
3P Rue Ri
4 Én Ë Éni

PrepositionsEdit

Prepositions include the positioning or the destination of the object in relation to another, such as n (in), å (to), frå (from), and ut (out).

"Compound prepositions" can be formed by combining one of each type, such as nå (into) or utfrå (outside of).

They are placed either before or after the object being described.

Je en utfrå storenen. - I am outside of the store.

Re valked frå ru husen å skolenet. - He walked from his house to school.

Kloudene en n skeinen ja abuf spronene. - The clouds are in the sky and above the trees.

NumbersEdit

The number system is complex. They do not decline unless if they are being used as a noun (like in card playing). The numbers 0-10 are:

0 - zero

1- an

2 - tu

3 - tre

4 - fura

5 - vijf

6 - ses

7 - seven

8 - åt

9 - nona

10 - ben


From here, the word ben is used as a suffix for the next nine numbers:

11 - anben

12 - tuben

13 - treben

14 - furben

15 - vijfben

16 - seben

17 - seveben

18 - åben

19 - noben


From here, the multiple of ten is a prefix:


20 - tventi

21 - tventian

22 - tventitu

23 - tventitre

24 - tventifura

25 - tventivijf

30 - tirti

40 - furti

50 - vijfti

60 - tsetsi

70 - seventi

80 - åtti

90 - nonete


Multiples of one hundred are separate words before the tens and ones, connected by the word ja.


100 - åndreau

192 - åndreau ja nonetetu

200 - tundreau

300 - tredreau

400 - furadreau

500 - vijdreau

600 - sedreau

700 - sevedreau

800 - ådreau

900 - nödreau


The thousands, millions, billions, etc. are prefixes, connected by dashes, for the word åndreau.


1000 - tosönd

100000 - hoube

1000000 - miejon

1000000000 - biejon

1000000000000 - triejon
