Greetings!


Classical-Botiq is a work in progress project, a daughter language of  Early-Botiq.

  • Basic word order is VSO, but animate object preceeds inanimate subject. In this case we use case marking and passive voice.


  • Saexin sig dogoviž.
    I am washing the clothes.

    Saexinev ter vüdž sig didüagem.
    The rain washes my face.

  • Subject and object are both marked on the verb. Some word initial and word final consonants might change depending on the affix.


  • Ribiv
    To serve

    Säibiv.
    I serve (it).

    Sänoibiv.
    I serve you.

    Sooibiv.
    I serve him/her.

  • CSB uses a complex system of auxiliaries to mark different moods, and tenses. Sometimes the same word expresses a different tense/mood.


  • Sasir sig divnii.
    I am going to the city

    Sasir tisi sig divnii.
    I want/would like to go to the city

    Sasiüüz tisi sig divnii.
    I will go to the city.

  • Instead of a word like "have", Classical-Botiq uses existential possession.


  • šlür siidž ee xidüüem.
    I have a cow./There is a cow to me.
    Sample of Classical-Botiq[view] Momosääbonoo ee riävub, moixobur šuuz uusl.

    When you find yourself in a hole, quit digging.
