Hi all, I already mentioned the noobness of this attempt in the subject line, so let's cut to the chase:
The Nufyak language
Phonology-The sounds of the language are primarily dental, glottal (including stops and glides not expressible in English), and alveolar, with few nasalized and almost no aspirated sounds.
Grammatical features- The language is strongly agglutinative, completely devoid of inflection with tonality largely absent. The base stem of virtually all words is an adjective or would be expressed in English as a genitive case noun. As in all agglutinative languages, changes in Part of Speech, case, number, mood, tense, and implication are indicated by adding particles to the base form. These particles are all postpositional with the sole exception of the tense particle in a future tense utterance, which is prepositional. Gender is largely absent.
Pronouns are based on the second person singular.
Syntax is generally SVO, but a sentence can have several clauses which would be placed before the main verb of the independent clause. Additionally,
Izh va trubarin qagar? (are you going to the bank?)
Ya, ghranzav me'izh izhni zan ji'arun qaghei'ar (Yes, do you[pl] want me to get anything while I'm out?)
Za bagarin zhvebag ghratrubar. (Buy some ham at the supermarket)
Qatrubar? (How much will it cost [lit:what money]?
zhach trubani'arun ghei'ar (get 7 bucks worth)
