?FYI...
This article is a work in progress! Check back later in case any changes have occurred.

there is 15 classes:
1 - Natural Force:
The weather, the spirits, earthquakes, any inevitable "power".

2 - Divine Force:
The Gods, the deeds of the gods.

3 - Absolute Force:
Something which rules, or owns; a king, a slaveowner, an employer.

4 - Personal Force:
A person on equal footing with the speaker, or the speaker themselves, or typically just below, too.

5 - Natural Location:
An location within nature; a river, a mountain.

6 - Animal Force:
Large animals, typically anything the size of a pig or above.

7 - Minor Animal Force:
Animals smaller than a pig. Does not include bugs.

8 - Inferior Force:
Bugs, slaves, humans severely outranked by speaker.

9 - Minimal Force:
Plants, bacteria.

10 - Exterior Human Locations:
Any location that isn't natural, which does not shelter from rain or snow.

11 - Interior Human Locations:
Any location that isn't natural, which shields from rain or snow.

12 - Instrumental Objects:
Objects which are an instrument, or ingredient, to an action.

13 - Additional Objects:
Other objects, which are merely auxilliary to the action at hand.

14 - Emotions:
Emotions.

15 - Concepts:
All other intangible nouns.

each of these 15 classes can be attached to a noun, and a particle is created from the class of the subject, and the class of the object. the particle follows the verb (which leads the sentence). for example,

I will hit the horse.

I: class 4 -> particle "mii"
horse: class 6 -> particle "të"

and as such, the sentence is:

Raakhi-ya miitë säa nüwiicisa.

hit-FUTFuture (tense)
action occurring after the moment of speech
NOMNominative (case)
TRANS subject, INTR argument
.4Fourth person (person)
obviative, not present
-ACCAccusative (case)
TRANS direct object; patient
.6Unknown code 1SFirst person singular (person)
speaker, signer, etc.; I
horse.ACCAccusative (case)
TRANS direct object; patient


There are four possible phrase particles:

Standard, which has no prefix, and simply combines the NOM-ACC particles.

Imperative, which has prefix "e-", and only has an ACC particle.

Relative, prefix "u-", which has both, but, if referring to subject of the previous sentence, substitutes with "mäa", and does the same with object and "mö".

And continuative, which has prefix "a-", is commonly followed by a conjunction ("and" is implied if none). The same substitutions as with relative are in play, but additionally, the NOM and/or ACC may be dropped if identical to the ones of the previous sentence. If the NOM would be dropped (but not the ACC), it is replaced with "ci". If the entire previous sentence would be referred to, "baa" is used, instead.

Questions have a separate particle, "küu", which is included directly after the sentence particle if the sentence is a question.

Classes are also used for adjectives. Adjectives are suffixed with the particle of the relevant class.
