I am the evil butcherer!

Well, this is a language thingy I created for the sole purpose of roleplaying… Here are my rules and things, I'm sorry if it's really confusing. (No, it's NOT done. Note the hideous, gaping holes. You can ask me if you feel like it.)

PRONUNCIATION KEY
Letter Sound Letter Sound

• Note: All sounds in this tongue have a softer, shorter sound than English or Spanish. J is similar to z, but has a jutting sound.
• If two letters that are the same are next to each other, put a dash in between them. (fédil-lú)

NOUNS (n)
Indefinite Articles- leave the noun plain. (ahrif, fédil)
Plural Indefinite Articles- add lú to the end (ahrifú, fédil-)

Definite Articles- add v(ï) to the front (vahrif, fédil)
Plural Definite Articles- add v(ï) and lú to the appropriate places (vahrif, fédil-)
• If a noun is owned, it also has this prefix.

• Two adjectives can describe a noun, connected by ü. The adjectives are second. (vahrif nezê ü élöê)

ADJECTIVES (adj)
• Adjectives describing nouns end in ê.
• Two adjectives can describe a noun, connected by ü. The adjectives are second. (vahrif nezê ü élöê)
• An adjective can be describing a verb as an adverb or predicate, two for one verb. This adjective ends with (ä)l. (nan isúnäl)
• If one of these vdj should need to be described, a ê adj is used. (isúnäl danê)

Pronouns (pro)
• I- ó, my/mine- óê, we- ólú, ours- ólúê, he- qá, his- qáê, she- ís, hers- ísê, you- él, yours- élê, you all- él-lú, owned by you all- él-lúê, they- qálú, theirs- qálúê
• These possessive pronouns (mine, his) go after the noun like normal adjectives. (vahrif óê)

VERBS (v)
• If the verb is in the present tense, leave the verb plain. (nan) If it was past, add er’. (er’nan) If it is in the future, add oj’. (oj’nan)
• If the verb is in the present tense and acted apon by more than one thing, add lú. (nanlú) If it was plural past, add er’. (er’nanlú) If it is future plural, add oj’. (oj’nanlú)

Predicates/ Verbed Adjectives (vadj)
• An adjective can be describing a verb as an adverb or predicate, two for one verb. This adjective ends with (ä)l. (nan isúnäl)
• If one of these vdj should need to be described, a ê adj is used. (isúnäl danê)

WORDS OF RANDOM

Conjunctions (c)
And- ü; but- sï; or- dâl
• Conjunctions are placed in sentences exactly like those in English. (Vahrif óê élöê, sïí vahrif élê jéhaê.)

Jå- of, from; ik- to, at
• These words are placed in sentences exactly like those in English. (Ó jå Brúklín.)

Questions
Question words do not exist. Don’t ask “what’s your name?”— ask “your name?” (Élê vófarud?)
