Another info dump about the language of those weird South American dragons. This post is about the pronouns, some verbs and actions; The next post probably will be the writing system one.

Before understanding pronouns, we need to understand gender... grammatical gender, which doesn't [need to] have connection with social/personal gender, it's more of a classification of things that the people felt should be implied by language.

  • seri - an entity in ngeneral, but may imply things that can't think (plants, objects, simple animals) - Also used as '(some)thing'
  • seriv - being capable of thought (all animals with a brain)
  • serin - being capable of complex/civilized thought - With seriv, also used as 'someone'

So, going for the pronouns

as subject
1st min
2nd (s) vou (p) vus
1st + 2nd minue
3rd (seri) ker- (serif) sif- (serin) sen-

The (third person) pronouns are specially used to refer to cited things, so they mark which thing they are referring to in their specific gender.

  • sa - last cited thing
  • si - older cited thing
  • de - unknown or non specified thing

for more specification, say it again (if it's a long compound or has many adjectives, say just the first noun)

In the example:

"John said 'sensa' likes trees, dogs and mushrooms, I like 'sifsa' too, Sam likes 'sifsi'."
It would mean: John said John likes trees, dogs and mushrooms, I like dogs too, Sam likes trees.

  • ne - it's "and", keeps the individual nouns as separate things
  • nej - same as 'ne', but joins the nouns as a single thing

When joining as a single thing, the resulting thing has the 'lowest' of person:

  • min + (3rd person) - 1st person ("me and them")
  • vou + (3rd) - 2nd person ("you and them")
  • minue - 1st person ("me and you")
  • minue + (3rd) - 1st person ("me, you and them")
  • (3rd) + (3rd) - 3rd person ("they and them")

And the highest gender.

"Sam 'ne' the car are here, 'sensa' is cool." sensa = Sam
"Sam 'nej' the car is here, 'sensa' is cool." sensa = Sam and the car

Yes, I know this got quite unnecessarily complex.

Conjugation and acting on self

Verbs are always conjugated, a conjugated verb is the base word + the conjugation for its person.

normal as order
1st -ein -eni
2nd -tou -totu
3rd (seri) -ker (serif) -rif (serin) -sen

If the base word ends with a vowel, merge with the rule

  • ein/eni - drop the vowel

pisdi + ein - pisdein
xokró + totu - xokrótotu

The when 'as order' for the second person, the verb means you are ordering/asking them to do something, for the first person, the verb means a wish.

When two verbs are together (like in "trying to find"), the last verb is the one conjugated

  • nesmo - after verb and before object (if any), means subject affected itself, or the object (if any) affected the subject


More words to get into:

  • pisdi - sub. attempt, verb to try
  • xokró - sub. (game) match or game session, verb to play [a game]
  • qai - tree, big plant
  • qad - bush, small plant
  • ahqa - edible plant, vegetable, fruit
  • raja - sub. a little pain, verb to hurt lightly
  • banki - sub. food, sustenance, fuel; verb to eat, to consume

bankeni ahqa.
ahe pisdi bankitotu qad, rajein nesmo.
