Explanation of Katabala Verbs and Nouns

From:Austin Taylor <aemilius7@...>

{wer} = "love" (verb)

Without any "word particles," this verb is in the present indicative.  So:

Te wer. = I love.

With a tense particle, the meaning of the verb changes.  So:

Te vishol ker. = I have loved.

{vishol} = perfect tense particle

With the addition of a voice particle and a mood particle,
the meaning changes still further.

Te sedvishollem ker? = Have I been loved?

{sed} = passive voice particle
{lem} = interrogative mood

Also, those two sets of case endings ARE for different types
of nouns.  So, where Latin has 5 declensions and 6 cases,
Katabala has 2 declensions and 4 cases.

Hope that clears things up.
