About Riderian Official language of the Democratic Republic of Rideria. A member of the Eastern Levrian language tree, Riderian is related to  Marinese and to a lesser extent,  Cornish (Levrian), but uses a minutely modified Marinese script, and loans words from Marinese.

1. SOV word order.
2. Three genders for nouns and verbs: Solid, Liquid and Spirit.
3. Unlike Marinese, Riderian uses distinctions in the third person between male, female and neuter.
4. Verbs conjugate by agent and tense.
5. Stress is marked in multisyllabic words with an acute accent. (An acute accent is also used on the Riderian Alphabet's vowels).
6. Nouns conjugate in six ways, plural, possessor, possessed, sociative, privative and referential. This includes proper nouns.
7. If a plural noun is followed by an adjective to describe it, the adjective is also pluralised with the addition of -s unless the adjective ends in s and then it incurs no change.

NOTE: Some words, when conjugated, may have a different stressed syllable than what is shown. The conjugations that change stress however always remain the same... Example being 'Altracúlias' meaning to oversee or supervise, becomes 'Altráculo' in the first person, and the same for the others.
