About Nimar
Krivots!

UNDERGOING LEXICAL, GRAMMATICAL, AND ORTHOGRAPHICAL RECONSTRUCTION!




(wip) Nimar is a highly complex language spoken on the planet of Ihir, mainly in the province of Ausesta, the largest country on the planet. It uses the Latin script for now, but soon, I will change it to a custom alphabet (which I have yet to make) It uses the Galatician alphabet, unlike its relative Dmoor.
Also, it doesn't have around 500 words by now because school gets in the way of this project.
Features:
-3 grammatical genders: Masculine, Feminine, and Neuter
-More polysynthetic than agglutinative (I don't speak any agglutinative or polysynthetic languages, so this will be fun!)
-Vowel harmony
-11 cases; Nominative, Accusative, Dative, Genitive, Locative, Vocative, Privative, Pegative, Causative, and Partitive. 7 cases! Nominative, Accusative, Dative, Genitive, Locative, Vocative, and Instrumental. I thought Privative, Pegative, Causative, and Partitive were cases that were too specific and just wasted my time while filling in grammar tables.
-No standalone pronouns. See my pronoun article (which I haven't made yet) for more info.
-7 moods: Negative, Conditional, Imperative, Indicative, Jussive, Subjunctive, and Supine moods.
-Affixes for topic and focus mood
