Pronunciation guide for people that speak English and not IPA: m, n, p, b, t, d, k, g, f, v, s, z, h, w, r, y, and l are all pronounced as in English. C and j are pronounced like the first sounds of "chip" and "job" respectively. P and b can be pronounced with your mouth in the position you normally use for f and v, and vice versa. S and z can also be pronounced like the first sound of "ship" and the middle sound of "treasure" respectively. ' (an apostrophe) is like k, but farther back where you normally pronounce h. Rr is a trilled r like in Spanish, and bb is a trill with your lips. X and q are pronounced with your mouth in the position you use for l, but making more noise with the air coming over the sides of your tongue; with x you don't use your voice (like s) and with q you do use your voice (like z.)

Note: In order to create a distinctive character for the language, k and g should be treated in a similar manner to the letter x in English. ie: Rarely and primarily for loan words from other languages or for making things sound alien/foreign/weird etc.

!!Phonotactics

Basic syllable structure: (C)(C)V(V)(C)(C)

—What can be where—

* Words may begin with a consonant, a consonant plus an approximant, or a vowel.
* Words may end with any single consonant other than an affricate or trill, or in a nasal plus a same-POA stop.
* Any pairs of consonants are allowed in the middle of words, and may be followed by an approximant. The following exceptions apply:
** Any nasal followed by a stop must share its POA.
** Two adjoining consonants must have different [=MOAs=].

—Vowels—

* Any sequences of three or fewer vowels are allowed. They are pronounced separately except for the diphthongs and long vowels.
* There are two degrees of vowel length - the longer one indicated by doubling the written vowel.
* If two instances of the same vowel adjoin but are pronounced separately, they are separated by a glottal stop, written with an apostrophe.

—Stress—

* Words are stressed on the second-to-last syllable, and nonstandard stress is indicated by an acute accent over the stressed vowel.
* When a doubled vowel is accented thus, the accent comes on the first written vowel.

Example single-syllable word: Kwaunt

!Word order
The basic sentence structure is subject-object-verb. Adjectives and adverbs follow what they modify, as do adjectival and adverbial phrases.

!Nouns
!!Noun classes
Nouns belong to one of five classes, indicated by adding a suffix to the root. The suffixes are:
* deity -ya
* sentient -a
* animal -e
* object -o
* abstract and verbal nouns -u
Thus for example, the root ''distaf'' _female_ forms:
* ''dístafya'' _goddess_
* ''dístafa'' _woman_
* ''dístafe'' _female animal_
* ''dístafo'' _female statue_
* ''dístafu'' _femininity / to be female_
!Pronouns
!!Personal
* first : i(n)
** 'I, me, myself'
* second : pu(n)
** 'you, yourself'
* third : ta(n)/fa(n)/va(n)
** 'troper/non-troper/non-human'
personal pronouns can be mixed to create plurals
* in 'me' + pun 'you' = ipun 'me and you, we'
* pun + fan 'him/her/them' = pufan 'you and them/you lot/y'all'
* etc.
-n is added to the end of a pronoun if followed by another pronoun or a vowel, so as to stop plural confusion.
!!Correlatives
|| ||'''definite'''|| || || ||'''indefinite'''|| || || ||
|| ||''distal'' that (near you)||''proximal'' this (near me/near both of us)||''impersonal'' that (away from both of us)||''interrogative/reflexive'' what||''universal'' all/every||''negative'' none||''alterntive/reciprocal'' another/eachother||''existential-elective'' some/any||
||''thing/determiner''||ze (that/those)||je (this/these)|| (that over there)|| (what/which/who/whom)||dev (all, every, everything, everyone, both) ||hero (none/no/no one/nobody/nothing/neither))||dif (another/one another/each other)||ol(some/any/something/anything/someone/anyone)||
||''time''||zewe/zeri (then)||jemu (now)|| || (when)||dev-* (always) ||hero-*(never)||dif-*||ol-*||
||''place''||zeset (there)||jeset (here)|| || (where)||devset (everywhere) ||heroset (nowhere)||difset (somewhere else/each place)||olset(somewhere/anywhere)||
||''reason''|| (therefore)|| (thus)|| || (why)|| || (no reason)|| (another reason/each reason)|| (for some reason/any reason)||
||''manner''|| (thereby)|| (this way)|| || (how)|| || (no way)|| (another way/each way)|| (somehow/any way)||
||''amount''|| (that much)|| (this much)|| || (how much)|| || (no amount)|| (another amount/each amount)|| (some/any amount)||
time correlatives can be suffixed with -mu, -ri, -we, as well as the time-travel tenses, however they are still considered adverbs. The only exceptions to this are the distal/proximal/impersonal, where distal is either we/ri, proximal is always mu, and impersonal is always time-travel.

place correlatives can be combined with any preposition.

pronouns can also be suffixed with the laudative '-sande' to indicate {{shown their work}}, or the pejorative '-dindo' for the opposite
* ta-sande (he who did his reasearch)
* pu-dindo (you, who have not shown your work)
* distaf-sande (good girl)
* sepir-dindo (silly boy)
!Verbs
!!Tenses
There are three basic tenses, indicated by the following suffixes:
* past -ri
* present -mu
* future -we
time-travel tenses
* future changed -yowe (eg.I ate tommorrow)
* past changed -yori (eg.i didn't eat yesterday (but i did in an alternate timeline))
* future-past changed -yomu (eg. I shall eat yesterday)

The suffix -yo is used to indicate that the tense suffix which follows is correct from the timeline of the speaker's experience. If a person does something, then travels to a time before that action, the person should say "I do-yo-ri it."
!!Imperative
The suffix -mio is used to form the imperative, in all grammatical persons - i.e. "let's go" and "may he go" as well as "go!"
!!Copula ("to be")
There is no copula - the state of being something is expressed by attaching the proper tense suffix(es) to the root. Thus ''distaf'', the female root, forms:
* ''distaf-ri'' _was a woman_
* ''distaf-mu'' _is a woman_
* ''distaf-we'' _will be a woman_
* as well as the time travel tenses
!!!Existence
to denote existence (ie. 'There is/are/was/were etc.') the sentence starts with the particles 'Ri', 'Mu', 'We' as well as the time-travel tenses.
* Ri wordya 'There was a God/There was a Writer'
* Mu drahone jeset '{{here there be dragons}}'
can also be used for place/time
* Mu va jeset! 'Here it is!'

!Adjectives and adverbs

These words are created from a root with the suffix -i. Thus ''distaf'', the female root, forms ''distafi'', meaning "feminine" or "femininely."

!Numbers

The numberal system is base-twelve, so 24 would be duxo' or two-twelve, and 26 would be duxo'-duo, or two-twelve and two.
