About (metamorphosis coming soon) Grammar Features

  • Word order: OVS (default), OSV (interrogative) and VOS (imperative) only.
  • Classes: ANA (adjective, noun and adverb): adjectives preceeds nouns and adverbs preceeds verbs. This is how the 3 classes can be identified. And zero articles.
  • Grammatical cases: more or less 8 cases, but is an analytical language. And it has two numbers: singular and plural.
  • Reduplication: full reduplication usually is for augmentative (ANA class) and habitual aspect (verbs) while partial reduplication usually is for diminutive (ANA class) and progressive/gerund aspect (verbs). However, both of them can represent other conditions as well. Reduplication in VOS word order changes the verb from imperative to the subjunctive mood.
  • The adpositions are, in the majority, ambipositions.
  • And last but not least, the verbs and tenses! Rwokoloofebian's verbs are not conjugated and it has just only one form: vowel reduplication. So, how are the tenses marked at all? The answer is... the Entity pronouns!
  • The Entity Pronouns does have the duty of mark 'who' is the temporal subject or circumstantial subject of the sentence (or both). Temporal subject refers to the regular subject pronouns (agent; nominative case). Circumstantial subject refers to the regular object pronouns (patient; accusative case). And the pronouns never can be dropped.
  • The possessives have two categories: property and relationship.
