Default -- Bonus Pack 1 --

In Bonus Packs I will add new things that I've learned about stuff that are in lessons already, and are not crucial for one to know.

Updates are posted as thread bumps (just to keep people updated ).

NOUNS - "somekind"
There is a suffix -o standing as "some" or "somekind".
tuteo - tute-o - somebody
taronyuo - taron-yu-o - somekind of hunter ("some hunter")

Tsatute taronyuo lu
Tsa-tute taron-yu-o lu
THAT-"person" "hunt"-PROFESSION-SOMEKIND to.be
That person is a somekind of hunter

NOUNS - Dative case allomorph
An allomorph is a modified version of a prefix, but which doesn't change it's purpose.
All noun cases have allomorphs (eg. topic -ri, -ìri), I want you to remember that, it might be useful when translating someones sentence.

I want to note that the dative case allomorph is not so different, but it's very hard to find if you forget about that allomorph.
-ru , -ur
Allomorph -ur is used after consonants.

oe-yä +'eylan-ur
oeyä eylanur - to my friends
(marked a consonant because of which we are using the allomorph -ur, if it was a vowel we'd use -ru)

Note ^
How do you recognise "friends" in this sentence?
'eylan - friend

Lenition causes ' to disappear - that I did not mention before, since it's not crucial usually.


Case allomorphs (and pretty much most of all prefixes/suffixes/inflixes) are different when next to vowels, consonants, or other inflixes. It's all described in the wikibooks. Still I don't write it all here. It's too much, and it's useless. Usualy you'll just want to put a prefix in its place without any transformations (except for lenition). We want the language to be simple, right?
