Nouns: Tako nouns are only marked for case and nothing else and are very simple, there are no pronouns instead people's names are used. Adjectives are simply nouns and adverbs are just verbs. Colours are named from what the represent in the wild e.g. blood is opo and thus red is opo.Edit

case suffixes
ergative kap[ap if word ends with consonant]
accusative pak [ak if word ends with consonant]
expriencer [ø]
plural i

VerbsEdit

the verbs are simple and are not marked for tense, aspect or mood at all not even with pres postions for example walk is simply Pa because verbs do not conjugate nor do they agree, adjectives and adverbs are simply used as verbs or nouns for example green vine is simply òpò tipaki  literal the vine is green. "ti" is the verb to be and behaves like all other verbs for it does not conjugate.

SyntaxEdit

The word order is strictly SOV and OV and nothing agrees with anything.

There are many loan words from english and mirkuleon religious terms, war terms and herding terms for urdcax whilst more modern terms, and scientific terms come from english.

Tako has to change words from english drastically pati kis is merry christmas. if we look at this first loanword merry is rendered pati because there is no m so it becomes p, there is no e as in chirstmas is it becomes a, there is no r so it becomes t. christmas is kis because there are no polysyllabic words in tako, the ch in christmas is prounced k english and so can be just written k, the middle rstma is ommited completely.


Example textEdit

 All humans are born free and equal, and should act towards each other in brotherhood and love

[freedom erg and equality erg human plural acc birth and humans erg humans acc behave, blood and love in]
