GrammarEdit

Naheladu possesses the following categories of words: Verbs, adverbs, pronouns, and clitics. There is no grammatical distinction between nouns, verbs and adjectives. Every noun and adjective can be summarized as "is (a/the) ___". For example, Nehana means "(it) is a/the spirit", and Igai means "(it) is correct.". Thus, Naheladu can be said to replace every noun and adjective with verb-based equivalents; nonetheless, prefixes are added to alter the meaning of words from verb-like to adjective or noun-like meanings, creating an extensive list of verb-classes.
