I recently fell in love with Swahili grammar. It relies as heavily on
prefixes as most indo-european descendents do on suffixes. The BEGINNING of
a noun determines its number and class, and this agrees with the beginning
of any adjective that modifies it. As well, verb tenses, pronoun subjects
and objects, and negation are also expressed by sticking prefixes on to the
beginning of the verb.
This is the basis of my language called Tolbor, which is still very
undeveloped as of yet. Unlike Swahili though, I made Tolbor OVS just because
I like being difficult.
