Classification and DialectsEdit

Skrutile is not known to be related to any language, although verb conjugation of the 1st plural ("we") is done like Latin does (adding a -mus suffix to the stem). This is believed to date from the Latin invasion of Carthage. Also, for some unexplainable reason Greek letters are found in the alphabet.

GrammarEdit

NounsEdit

There are three types of nouns: feminine, masculine and neuter. Feminine nouns always end with the suffix -a, to pluralize you just add the prefix s-. Masculine nouns always end with the suffix -e, and to pluralize you just add the prefix s-. Neuter nouns always end with the suffix -i, but loanwords may end with the suffix -ig. To pluralize, the prefix x- is added, but loanwords may be pluralized with the suffix -s.

VerbsEdit

Skrutilian verbs conjugate according to person and tense. We'll start of with person, because this is considered easier. In Skrutile, there are 11 persons. This is the conjugation of the irregular verb "exere" (to be), the only irregular verb in the whole language.
