Grammar[]

Nouns[]

Nouns in Rumelian are declined in four cases and two numbers mostly by adding a suffix or a prefix.

Singular mârd (=man)
Nominative mârd
Accusative mârdân
Dative emârd
Genitive emârda
Plural
Nominative mârde
Accusative mârdâne
Dative emârde
Genitive emârdi

Without any specific pronoun, the noun is indefinite, e.g. Mârdân mivinâm. (=I see a man.)

Definiteness[]

There are three different types of definiteness which can be expressed by adding a pronoun (which are invariable) at the end of a word :

  1. The simple definiteness is expressed by the pronoun le, e.g. Mârdân le mivinâm. (=I see the man.)
  2. The proximate definiteness is expressed by the pronoun de, e.g. Mârdân de mivinâm. (=I see this man.)
  3. The distal definiteness is expressed by the pronoun ğe, e.g. Mârdân ğe mivinâm. (=I see that man.)

Adjectives[]

Adjectives are exactly declined like nouns and always precede the described noun, e.g. Pitân mârdân le mivinâm (=I see the old man.). Adjectives may also be nominalized by leaving the noun out, e.g. Pitân le mivinâm (=I see the old one.)

Comparative[]

The comparative is formed by adding suffix -tar to the adjective stem, e.g. pittar mârd (=an older man). The comparison is done by putting the adjective in the comparative form and by compared noun in the genitive case, e.g. Mârd de pittar emârda ğe aşt. (=This man is older than that man.)

Superlative[]

The superlative is formed by adding the suffix -tarân to the adjective stem, e.g. pittarân mârd (=a very old man). The comparison in the superlative form is done by putting the adjective in the superlative and by the compared noun in the genitive case, e.g. Pittarân le eşkola mân am. (=I am the oldest of my school.). The prefix pre- may be attached to an adjective in the superlative; it emphasizes and exaggerates the meaning of the superlative, but it is mostly used for poetic purposes, e.g. Prepittarân mârd aşt. (=He is the oldest man in the world / I have ever known...)

Verbs[]

Verbs in Rumelian are highly inflected, but there is a high regularity (just one irregular verb : budân = to be) and just one conjugation (sample verb : konân = to do). In Rumelian verbs have two stems : an imperfective stem basing on the stem of the infinitive present (konân = to do); and a perfective stem basing on the stem of the infinitive perfect (kardân = to have done). Depending on the tense, you will have to use one or the other.

Indicative[]

Present[]

The present tense bases on the imperfective stem.

Present konân budân
âz mikonâm am
tu mikonâşt as
şo, şa, işu mikonâ aşt
nân mikonâmi em
vân mikonât eşti
şe mikonând ând
  1. The present tense describes present situations, e.g. Nunân miħârdâm. (=I am eating bread.)
  2. The present tense describes scheduled future situations, e.g. 8 esâta avtobus le miravâ. (=The bus leaves at 8 o'clock.)
  3. The present tense can be re-enforced by its continuous meaning by the verbal construction of the verb konân in the present tense following the main verb in the participle present, e.g. Nunân fele ħârdânde mikonâm. (=I am now eating bread.)
