Chleweyish will be my new language, is the language of the Chleweyness.
Fonno chleweye /'fOno 'xlju:ij@/, as known in Chleweyish will be loosely =
on the grammar of Colombian Signed Language.
Words can be basically classified in the following groups:
Verbs or predicates
Nouns can take a plural ending -(e)n, or a singular ending -(e)c... uninf=
will usually mean singular if the context does not clarify.
Verbs will inflect after mode. I have not yet decide how many modes will=
Chleweyish have. I have yet decided for imperative (usually uninflected)=
indicative (usually adds -e), and a yet unamed mode wich implies that the=
is not real (or probably not), but is not quite the subjunctive; this mod=
usually ends in -el. Infinitives end in -i.
Conectors can function as question word, as adverbs, as conjunctions or a=
Particles will alway be infront of the word they modify, they will be use=
for mark things like aspect, definitivenes, etc.
These categories are not fixed and a word could be used both as noun or a=
some conectors can act like particles or inflect like verbs, etc.
Basic phrase order is:
(space and time) subject verb (adverbial and mode conectors)
If a verb requieres more than one argument will be either OSV, SOV or SVO=
context will usualy tell wich one is correct, or the expresion will be sa=
some other way, like
SV "to what?" O
O(pasive)V "by who?" S.
Pasive voice would be either marked by a particle (usually "se") or by a
