GrammarEdit

NounsEdit

Nouns in Yfaar are remarkably simple, having only a few cases, no definiteness distinction, no gender distinction, and distinguishing only between the singular and the plural.

Nouns Nominative Accusative Dative Genitive Instrumental
Singular <stem> <stem> + noi <stem> + ma iq(a)-<stem> u-<stem>
Plural <stem>-ri <stem>-ri + noi <stem>-ri + ma iq(a)-<stem>-ri u-<stem>-ri

VerbsEdit

Pronouns are affixed onto verbs, similarly to Latin

SyntaxEdit

Sentence questions are states as commands, i. e. "Word at me the purpose of ___" is "What's the purpose of blank" (word at me is their equivalent of tell me / say (one does not "say" something, they "word something at someone"))
