Well, not that advanced. Here are some further rules to help grease the conversational wheels.
To stop you flicking back and forth between pages, here’s the transformation table again.
- Sometimes you don’t bother transforming a word — you just use one that sounds good. Thus, forzh or Domon’el. The author reserves the exclusive right to make up new One Tongue words.
- Imperative resorts to the infinitive. “To give” is feppos. “Give!” is feppos!
- Nouns are pluralised by the addition of “ev”. Thus, “my cats” are nop khovev.
- My: nop
- Your(s): vop
- His: top
- Hers: te
- Ours: povse
- Your(s): khovs
- Their(s): moest
- Of and of the: fo
