About Tengu Welcome to a language that looks like Inuktitut, sounds like Lojban, has as much unusual grammar as Amerindian languages do, and has a vocabulary that is not related to any other language because it's my only priori conlang.
- VSO word order
- Noun=adjective=verb=adverb
- Adjective follows the noun(I mean, the word after another word works like an adjective)
- Each tense has 8 forms depending on the possibility of the happening event
- 8 ways to answer instead of such words as "no", "yes", "possibly", "I'm not sure" etc
- Words have definite forms
- Dual/trial/plural number is formed in the beginning of the word as well as tenses
- Btw there's 27 cases
- Affixes instead of conjuctions
