[comments] Menu 1. Personal endings
This article is a work in progress! Check back later in case any changes have occurred.

This article will cover Elipa verbs, including how they conjugate by person, tenses, moods, etc. Verbs tend to be the first element of a clause in Elipa - the exception being adverbs of time, and reflexive pronouns which precede the verb.

[top]Personal endings

In Elipa, there are personal verb endings (suffixes) for various persons. Note that there is an option alternate ending for female speakers when using 1st person endings. Females may also use the masculine/neuter ending as well.

Ends in:SingularPlural
1st person

Vowel (-V)+m+v+k+∅+mid+nid+kid+pid**
Consonant (-C)*+im+iv+ik
* Very rare for these to occur...

** 3rd person plural form
If the subject of the sentence is clearly plural, then you don't need to use the +pid suffix. Observe the examples below where the former has a subject that is plural, the latter is unclear, so the +pid suffix is used.
Õze kahd kuhomtoThe owls drink some water
Õzepid kuhomtoThey drink some water
