Ok, I have time to give you the Grammar
There are two verbs in each sentence, which cannot function without each
other. Ehon-tan are the verbs "to kill" The first takes the mood, the
second takes the Tense, Aspect, and defines whether or not the verb is
The Mood is defined by a prefix
therefore 'Mehon uuryjo tanonip' means 'He must kill himself ' or 'may he
Tense is defined by a suffix on the second verb
Possible Future '-en'
Therefore, 'he might kill himself' is 'Jehon eryjo tanenip'
Aspect is defined by an following suffix on the second verb, verbs
Reflexivity is indicated by adding the suffix '-p'
Nouns have 14 cases and 7 Genders, which I will explore in my next bit.
