In Langi, there are five cases. They are Abjective, Dative, Genative, Prepositional and Essive. There are also three numbers, Singular, Dual and Plural.


The Abjective case is the most important. Its nouns end in the suffix -i. Abjective case nouns are used as the subjects and objects of a sentence. For example, in "The cat sees a dog" "cat" is the subject and "dog" is the object.


Dative case nouns end in the suffix -ir. Dative case nouns are used as the indirect objects of a sentence. For example, in "Mary reads the kindergarteners a story" "kindergarteners" is the indirect object.


Genative case nouns end in the suffix -u. Genative case nouns are possessives. For example, in "my friend's book" "my" and "friend's" are possessives.


Prepositional case nouns end in the suffix -as. Prepositional case nouns are the objects of prepositions. For example, in "through the woods" "woods" is the object of "through."


Essive case nouns end in the suffix -ä. Essive case nouns in English mean like/as something. For example, in "He dressed like a girl." "girl" is in the essive case.


Dual is two related items, to form it, add -a. Plural is two unrelated or three or more of anything. To form it, add -o.
