Menu 1. Example sentences Verbs of movement form a special class in Deinau. They receive a suffix that shows if the movement was coming, going, returning, etc. This suffixes come from verb roots that have become suffixes. They have different non-finite forms sometimes.
Goal and source of movement are marked with locative cases on nouns. They occur as oblique arguments, since movement verbs are all intransitive. A locative argument can be made into a subject if the verb receives a middle voice marker.
The following are the directional suffixes:
