I have a problem. I'm creating a conlang without any verbs or adjectives - just
nouns and case suffixes.
I've got a problem with this sentence: 'I-NOM give him-DAT the book-ACC'. In my
lang, I've got: 'The book is a gift from me to him'. I've got 'me' as agent in
the elative case ('from' - is that right?), and 'him' in the dative case ('to')
- but I've been thinking 'him' should be in dative and some other case meaning
