Pronunciation[]

Nouns[]

Nouns are divided into three classes (personal, idea, and object) and have two cases (subject and object). Number is indicated by verb conjugation.

Personal[]

Personal nouns are nouns that can be used to descibe people. They end in 'ge', 'gu', 'se', 'su', 'ye', 'yi' or 'yu', in subject case. '-n' is added for object case.

Idea[]

Idea nouns are nouns used to describe abstract concepts. They end in a double consonant ('nn', 'rr', etc).

Object[]

Object nouns are nouns used to describe anything physical that is not human. They end in 'ga', 'go', 'sa', 'so', 'ya' or 'yo', in subject case. '-n' is added for object case .

Pronouns[]

Pronouns work the same as in English. All pronouns (except for interrogative) can only be used in place of personal or object nouns.
