>Nova has 10 or 11, one is the vocative case which together with some
verbs form a distinctive group of direct address forms which I will
probably treat as different than normal forms. Nova moves most of
what I had had as verb voices to noun cases. In my analysis of case
I decided that case expressed the relationship(s) between arguments.
So there is a reflexive case, a reciprocal case, a passive case, and
Feorran has four cases, Relative, Absolute, Genitive, and Prepositional.
My unfinished Adenan lgs will probably distinguish between subject and
object forms or alternately Relative (ergative + genitive) and Absolute
forms but that all remains to be decided.
