Nouns[]

Nouns have 5 cases, Nominative, Accusative, Genitive, Dative, and Instrumental.

Cases Nominative Accusative Genitive Dative Instrumental
saue (house) saue saue(-g) saue sau(e-tos) s(i)ue
šasicha (honor) šasicha šasicha(-g) šasicha šasich(a-tos) š(i)asicha
chikha (food) chikha chikha(-g) chikha chikh(a-tos) ch()kha


The accusative case adds the suffix -g, the genitive case does the same thing as the nominative case, which is nothing, the dative case removes the last letter and adds the suffix -tos, and the instrumental case ablauts the first vowel to /i/, and /iu/ if /i/ is already there.

The instrumental case makes the verb have to agree by suffixing /i/ onto it.
