Aamyeriets looks at nouns as less useful than verbs, but it still offers some nifty whatnots in dealing with them. Because of the isolating restrictions put on the grammar, a noun can do one thing: represent a thing. Not a group of things, or what the thing does, just the thing by itself sitting in the cold dark recesses of mental space. If we want to do anything to it or with it, we need to use some function words.

The two parts of speech that nouns like are prepositions and determiners. A preposition is used to denote the case of a noun, if it's different than the word order, and determiners help show the number and some meta-qualities of the object.

Nouns are assumed to be singular when a determiner isn't used.

First, let's look at what a noun looks like and how to build them.

A noun must have one softened vowel: ye, yë, ya, yä, yo, yö, yi, and yu. If you want to form a noun from an adjective or adverb, you just need to soften the last vowel in the word. They all have the same form as the verb.

Next, we should look at how to modify them.

In Aamyeriets, there is some metadata included in the word itself. Prepositions contain "ai," and all determiners contain "ei"

Aamyeriets uses determiners to denote number and group, similarly to English. English doesn't typically denote number only with determiners, but they are the only way to denote number other than context. Simple plurality is formed by using the word for many, "ei" which is the simplest possible determiner.
