Re: Case

    My Ricadh has a system that I wouldn't exactly call "case" -- it's more
similar to the particle system in Japanese, where grammatical relationships
of any kind (including traditional case and prepositions) are denoted by
affixes.  Mine is somewhat different from Japanese, however, in the fact
that subject and direct object aren't marked in this way (Ricadh is an
isolating language at least that far).  Also, many more prepositions are
marked this way in Ricadh, as opposed to Japanese, where many English
prepositions actually translate as nouns.
