Slisi to Saso lessons. Saso lessons are divided into units, this is unit one. Unit 1 is designed to teach the very basics of Saso. At the end of this unit you should be able to understand noun declensions and verb conjugations in the present tense, and construct basic sentences.

Lesson 1 teaches basic phrases, Lessons 2 and 3 will teach the concepts of verb conjugations and noun declensions in plain English. Lesson 4 will explain the formation of setnences. Lessons 5, 6, and 7 will then provide the conjugations, and declensions. Pronouns are introduced in lesson 7. Lesson 8 will explain the formation of sentences using pronouns. Lesson 9 will be a summary of the unit. 

The Sentence[]

In English and many romance languages, sentence order is SVO. This stands for subject, verb, object. The subject of the sentence is first, followed by the verb, or the action, and then the object, what is acted on, is last. An example of a SVO sentence is I kicked the bal.

This is not so in Saso, and this next phase might be tricky to get down. Sentenences in Saso are formed VSO, or verb, subject, object. This means that the verb of the sentence comes first. As opposed to I kicked the ball, it becomes kicked I the ball. This will feel a little strange at first, but you will get used to it over time.

Other notes, adjectives, except for articles, come after the noun they describe. The green ball becomes the ball green in saso. Adverbs also come after the verb they describe, but before other words. He ran quickly --> Ran quickly he.
