Grammar & Punctuation Edit
Adjectives & Adverbs Edit
Like English grammar, adjectives are always placed before the object. That rule also applies to adverbs with verbs.
Genitive/Possessive Forms Edit
Ownership can be shown in 2 ways: through suffix form and non-suffix form. The non-suffix form is used mostly for already-suffixed words, because you cannot join 2 suffixes together with 1 word. A prefix and suffix together with one word however will work. The "owner" goes after the "owned" (e.g. [owned][owner]).
|For words that end with vowels||For words that end with consonants|
|If "owner" name starts with vowel||-ko'||-au'|
|If "owner" name starts with consonant||-ki'||-iu'|
|If "owner" name starts with x, q, v or j||-ie'||-ed'|
Articles are written as prefixes, but they can also exist in non-prefix forms.

In order to attach suffixes, replace the last letter at the end of the word with the suffix form. They can also be applied to nouns and certain adjectives and adverbs too.
