So apparently you can't edit posts that are older than a couple hours? That's okay, I guess. At least it keeps a good record of things that I've done in the past! I just want to post a little bit about adjectives in this language, and also does anyone have any tips for coming up with a name
; how do they work?
Adjectives in this language can basically be made out of any word. Since there is no word for "to be" or any kind of existence, you say that "something is someway" in the following way:
Subject aux.verb adjective-tense.
So, in other words, to say "My day was good," you would say:
A dia onim e bonime.
The day of.me it good-PAST.
Basically, to make something into an adjective, you either add "im" to the end, or you take off the final letter and add "im." To say that "something is something" is similar. Because there is no way to say "is" or "are" and you still have to indicate tense in most cases, there is a way to change nouns into "objects" and indicate tense.
For example, to say "This woman was a girl," you would say:
Ai scola e scinaze.
The.specific woman she girl-PAST.
Instead of just adding e, a, or i, which could blend in with the vowel at the end of the noun, we add z+[tense] to indicate the tense. Also notice that "the" (a) becomes "this/that" (ai) when you add an "i" to it. "Ai" itself also means "yes" and can be added at the end of a sentence to add emphasis of affirmation.Adjectives are always placed after nouns. Questions
; how do they work?
Questions follow normal sentence structure, except they also include a question indicator ("ri") at the end of the main phrase, and may also include question words, such as "cacim" (how).
A dia etim e cacime ri, zenjor? A dia onim e bonime.
The day of.you it how-PAST QUE, sir? The day of.me it good-PAST.
How was your day, sir? My day was good.
More on questions later, when I can figure out more question words and such. For now, I hope that this was sufficient to get you interested in this language!
