A bit of Varai

Thanks to all repliers to 'Sorry'! Here's a summary of a few features of
Varai, my language. While it still is in its alpha-stage, these general
features are likely to stay:

1. Ergativty
Varai is an ergative language. This is neat since this enables Varai
speakers to have an unmarked dative and an unmarked ergative..
Example: "Thef tunai vea ket." The teacher gives me to you. (Word order: V
E A D G)

2. Unconjugated verbs
Verbs aren't conjugated for simplicity (and since I see no reason why they
should be).

3. Waky plurals
Thef tunai vea ket. The teacher gives me to you.
Thef thunai eaer thet. The teachers give us to you.

Next time I post, I'll have the rest of the present grammar and more up on
a website.
