<subject> <participle> <auxiliary particles> <object> [<tense particle>]* <auxiliary> [<tense particle>]*
* Where the tense particle appears before the auxiliary, it is indefinite/imperfect. After, definite/perfective.
Word order is loose, extremely loose. The only real limit on word order is that the dative must appear directly after either the auxiliary or the participle as it shares the same form as the genitive. It is generally SVO, and that's my recommendation for normal usage.
|Subject||Direct Object||Indirect Object|
Note: the symbol Ø means that this slot is empty - it is not a letter.
Eg. E3ado - I do to you.
The language was not intended to be ergative, but it turned into one...
The dative is the only case with a fixed position. It is placed after either the auxiliary or the participle. In any other position it could be mistaken for the genetive.
At the moment there are two noun declensions which are provisionally based upon the final letter of the word.
Roots are formed by removing the an/in suffix from the perfect participle or imperfect participle and any remaining vowels left over.
