Case problem in Nekiloti
|Date:||Monday, August 12, 2002, 1:45|
As most of you probably don't know, my newest language is Nekiloti. It
hasn't had a lot of developmental work done on it yet. I think I've
written one full sentence in it, for example.
I have a odd case thing happening. Although it works, I need some help
clearing up some terminology.
I will quote directly, (with some spelling changes) directly from my
Nekiloti nouns have inflected case. However, most cases are indicated
with word participles.
A Nekiloti noun can exist in pure nomitive form. (being a subject) or
accusative form or a mixture of one of those and a special form called
"effective". Accufective and Nomifective.
E.g.. Cat gives hairball to mouse.
Irk savoni eactus miacot vi.
Gives cat hairball mouse to.
Verb nomifective accusative accusative to case participle.
I am totally sure that there is a name for this system, and I just can't
find anything about it. Also, I'm not even sure of the nomitive and
accusative cases are switched. :( I can't remember anything about cases
unfortunately. I would really appreciate someone helping me clear this
up. In the mean while, work on Nekiloti continues, electronically, and
on the language. Expect a website in a week or so!
