Perfect. That's all I was really looking for.

Atario has five cases: Nominative, Genitive, Dative, Accusative and Vocative. According to the gender of each noun (Masculine, Feminine, Neuter) and its number (Singular, Plural, Numeral) the possible noun endings are:

Atario does not have articles to go before the noun, like in English 'the car'. Instead, the noun ending which indicates the case also functions as an article. It would be said that the Atario equivelant of 'the car' would be 'carthe'. This was inspired by Danish.

The Numeral Number is something that only exists in the Atario language: instead of saying 'to the three cars', in Atario you can add the number 'three' at the end of the noun, after the case ending. So, in Atario you can say 'cartothethree' (nouncasenumber). Example:

Aálto = person
Aaltýlalt = to the three persons
Aalt: noun root, ýl: dative case endind for masculine nouns, alt: three

The numbers will come at a later date :mrgreen:
Comments are appreciated :D

Cool, I was trying to think of a way to have case endings as well as the Danish definite system! Now I have an idea! :)

Is there any particular purpose for the distinction between Plural and Number? If so, how do you use them?

This is interesting; thanks!

Thank you :D

Imperial Atario, my older variant of the language, had four numbers:
Singular, Dual, Trial and Plural, each one for one, two, three and many objects respectively. But i find that it would be easier to have one number that would be adjusted to the number of things I would like to say (for instance sixtyfive houses) rather than express it in two words.

Numeral number is more precise (the sixtyfive cars) whereas plural is broader (the cars). Look at it like a dual number that can be adjusted to whatever number you want!

I hope this helped!

Atario has 7 tenses. These are:

Image

Now I will be showing you the first two: the Present and the Aorist Tenses.

____________________________________________________________________________


First we need to make clear that all verbs in Atario end in -ar. Having said that, the present tense suffixes are as follow:

Image

Present Tense example:

-Nür élvas hátr ǘltimer þánniel jontz hátr ráinharer khafé?
-Ámer! Hrívaras!

Translation:
-Do you want to go downtown to drink some some coffee?
-Yes! Get ready!


And the Aorist (Past) tense can be formed by adding a prefix and the present tense suffix:

Image

The suffix is always e- unless followed by another e, when it becomes a-.

Aorist Tense example:

-Éregþar eǘltimer itáliul élør elíliker ehrívarë. Nür ǘlma?
-Ánna jül-elíliker állyë hrívarë…

Translation:
-Today we went to school and had a great time. You?
-We didnt have that much fun...


Notes:

The Atario equivelant of the English 'not' is the prefix 'jül-' which can be added before the word. For example:
- elíliker : we walked by / we had (a nice time)
- jül-elíliker : we didn't walk by / we didnt have (a nice time)

In Atario, whenever you ask a question you must place 'nür' at the begining of the sentense.
For example:
- eǘltimer (we went)
- nür eǘltimer? (Did we go?)

Éregþar means 'today'. It is not a verb even though it ends in -ar.

I know this was resolved over 3 years ago, but I just wanted to say that it's perfectly okay to have c and k mean the same thing. We have c, k and q in Tikolmian, and my excuse is that <c> used to be [c] and <q> used to be [q]. They're all pronounced the same now except that <q> is [kw] before vowels. So just as long as you come up with a historical reason for having c and k, it's all good! :P
I really like Atario too. :)
