Teru (Root words)Edit

Teru are the basic root words they; can hold meaning and be used as nouns, verb roots, adjectives, and adverbs. A teru like nanka for example means food or eat. By default it means food, however, if it is preceded by a tense yanru (sa/po/fu) it becomes a verb and means eat/ate/will eat depending on which you used.

PluralEdit

To form plural words you simply add the word "nan" before the word.

Examples
Tekan English
panana banana
nan panana bananas
ren person
nan ren people


NumberEdit

To form number forms or to make dual forms you simply place the number before the teru that you wish to modfy you don't have to add the plural maker.

Example
Tekan English
ren person
na ren two people
ti panana three bananas
fo wotu four dogs


GenderEdit

There are 4 possible genders in Tekan, "i" male, "o" female, "yo" middle sex, and neutral. By default all words in Tekan are neutral; in order to form a gendered word you simply place the gender word before the word you wish to gender.

Example
Tekan English
ren person
i ren man
o ren woman
yo ren hermaphrodite person
wotu dog
i wotu male dog
o wotu female
yo wotu hermaphrodite dog

CasesEdit

There are five cases in Tekan these being "u" nominative, "e" accusative, "to" genitive, "uto" nominative-genitive, "eto" accusative-genitive "ni" dative, and "yu" vocative. To apply a case to teru(noun) or stack you place the case word preceding it.

Example
Language Word Sentence
Tekan u wotu sa nanka u wotu.
English the dog The dog eats.
Tekan e panana po nanka u saru e panana.
English the banana The monkey ate the banana.
Tekan ni ota po ata u ita ni ota e pen.
English to her He gave her the pen.
Tekan uto ita wotu po nanka uto ita wotu e nanko.
English His Dog His Dog ate a mango.
Tekan eto ota nanko po nanka u wotu eto ota nanko.
English her mango The dog ate her mango.
Tekan yu ke yu ke!
English Hey you Hey you!

StacksEdit

Stacks are a feature that Tekan uses to form meaning that it does not have words for. There are two types of stacks, noun stacks and verb stacks; both function the same way and are made similary. Noun stacks start with a case yanru such as "u" nominative, "e" accusative, "to" genitive, "uto" nominative-genitive, "eto" accusative-genitive "ni" dative, and "yu" vocative, and end when you either hit another case or the end of a sentence. Verb stacks start with a tense yanru such as "sa" present-tense, "po" past-tense, and "fu" future tense, and end when it hits a case or the end of the sentence. Stacks are treated as if they were single words even though they more of a list of words that are interpreted to form a new meaning.

Example
Tekan English
fu ra nanka osi I will desire to eat
sa iki osi Desire to be big
u safe wotu The white dog
e yelo ara panana The yellow green banana
Structure
Type Syntax
Noun (case) (locative) (number) (gender) (other yanru) (teru1) (teru2) (main teru)
Verb (tense) (person) (number) (gender) (person) (other yanru) (teru1) (teru2) (main teru)


Yanru (Function words)Edit

Yanru are function words that may hold meaning like teru and function as they do or a yanru may hold grammarical meaning such as tenses, person, pronouns, numbers among other things. Yanru are usually one syllable and precede the word that they operate on such as "nan panana" which means "bananas", "panana" by default simply refers to one, the "nan" makes it plural.
