About Yoriz
yoriza kam dump

Yoriz is an ancient language, it's nickname to those who learn it is, Norath, or darkness. Contrary to what most people believe of the language, it's not just about darkness, it's about love, and acceptance. A language of Justice, of sorts. Although the language has war-like terms, it doesn't have any terms of race or of a sexual nature. Most people in Mordem get around just fine without knowing the words for sexual parts, or even sexual acts. And nobody needs a term for heterosexuality or homosexuality, since everyone is born heterosexual. Which is strange, because it's predecessor, Nukulunam, has a lot of terms for such things.

Having a native speaker of 1, it is used only by Dormio to speak in magical terms of the previous universes in order to direct the universe to his terms.

Free-word order, but is SVO when speaking in first person, although the verb is conjugated to be first person, so it turns into VO. Third person can commonly be SOV or rarely SVO.

Order of declension is determined in 3 groups, S, V, and O. First is S, Causal, Vocative, Agent(intranstive), Genitive, Comparative, Dative. V, Adverbial, Lative, Prolative, Verb, Ablative, Locative. O, Instrumental, Object, Genitive, Comparative, Temporal.
