About Samnuy Hey welcome to Samnuy! Here are a few interesting things:
  • Analytical Grammar: no declension on nouns at all, tense clitics on verbs and number on pronouns are the only inflection
  • Reduplication intensifies adjectives and adverbs
  • All NPs begin with a determiner, even proper nouns
  • Proper nouns have their own determiner <in>
  • Inalienable nouns have a generic possession marker -'a/-'ha derived from <hana> "something"
  • Locative and temporal phrases are moved to the front of the sentence
