About Thargian Official language of  Thargun!

Special grammatical rules totally not stolen from Modern Standard Osveraali:
Verbs don't conjugate at all.
Word order changes to show tense.
Present: SVO
Past: VSO
Future: OSV

Words compound to form sentences. Adpositions are prepositions that prefix the noun. Modifiers proceed what they modify (if modifying a noun in a prepositional phrase, goes before the preposition, as it is affixed to the noun). There are no articles. Instead, a demonstrative (this/that/these/those) is used (indefinite is unmarked).
