Very obviously still a work in progress so I apoligize for current inconsistencies.

Grammar[edit | edit source]

Nouns[edit | edit source]

Nouns have 3 primary syntaxical declension patters in Aeuoi. Number is indicated through the use of adjectives. Definiteness, definite or indefinite, is mandatorily expressed along with the case, either accusative, ergative, or absolute, as well as the one of 5 genders, human, animal/plant, stone/non-plant material, dead matter, heavenly/ever present matter.

Articles and Genders[edit | edit source]

Indefinite and Definite[edit | edit source]

The indefinite or definite article is mandatory for any noun always and is placed directly before the noun in almost all cases. It also inflects the gender of the noun as either human, animal/plant, stone/non-plant material, dead matter, heavenly/ever present matter. Definite or indefinite can also be when the noun is plural or singular to indicate the definiteness of one, or a multitude of things.

Intransitive Transitive
Absolutive Ergative Accusative
Definate Indefinate Definate Indefinate Definate Indefinate
Human ak/akl fu ôxj xju xe xu
Animal/Plant ak/akl fu ôxjo xju xo xu
Mineral/Non-plant hae fou xjae xjou xae xou
Dead hja fo̊ xjjo xjo̊ ffo xo̊
Heavenly/Unchanging ahha fah axjja xjah affa xah

For example: akl hohjô - ARTL(human.def.abs) MAN - incomplete thought

"the man"

Likewise, fo̊ hohjô - ARTL(dead.indef.abs) MAN - incomplete thought

"a dead man"

Verbs[edit | edit source]

Verbs in Aeuoi do not conjugate for any tenses instead, other words are used to syntaxically show position in time. All verbs are regular, though state-of-being verbs as well as a few other verbs maintain completely separate words for animate and inanimate subjects and or agents (if transitive).

Pronouns[edit | edit source]

Pronouns in Aeuoi do not agree with anything and take no article. There is no distinction in plurality. The 1st/2nd person human is used to indicate 2nd person human in formal situations as the 1st person non-human has virtually the same pronunciation as the 2nd person human (and is thus considered rude).

Human Non-human
1st/[2nd Person (Formal)] ao aao
2nd Person aao aaao
3rd Person eo eio
4th Person (reflexive) ae aae

For example: Ffå̆klaa ao xu Xjou. - BE( ARTL(human.indef.acc) JOE.

I am Joe.

Syntax[edit | edit source]

The default word order for transitive clauses is VSO or Verb-Agent-Object(Patient). Likewise for intransitive clauses the default is VS or Verb-Subject. Adjectives precede nouns and take a possessive affix in order to effect the noun. Adverbs are adjectives modified syntaxically. Prepositions come immediately following the verb.
