[view] Common Televek (Common/Country Televek)While standard Televek is the most common variation spoken, Common Televek is a somewhat easier, less-regulated variation of the language. It uses only the first 8 grammatical cases, leaving out Comitative, Essive, Inessive, Ablative, and Allative Cases. It is also less common to hear the use of the Neutral-Animate gender (merged with standard Neutral) or paucal numbers (10+) in declension. There are a few regional differences in pronunciation and spelling, but root meanings remain.
