In American Turkic grammar, nouns, personal pronouns, and verbs are heavily inflected: there are two numbers (singular and plural), there is seven cases (nominative, accusative, genitive, dative, instrumental, ablative, and locative), three tenses (past, present, and future), a habitual aspect, six persons (first person singular, second person singular, third person singular, and their respective plural forms), and a copula prefix. It is a verb initial language, with questions taking VSO word order and every other sentence taking VOS word order. Adjectives and adverbs follow the parts of speech they modify, interrogative pronouns occur at the end of sentences (regardless of word order), and the posessee proceeding the posesser (a noun marked with genitive case), and interrogative pronouns always occur at the end of a sentence (regardless of whether it is a subject or an object).
