Sentence Structure

Verb - Subject - Object

Sentence structure and modifications happen at the beginning of the sentence rather than at the end of a word to indicate some grammatical features.

Example 1
Rather than modifying the verb, Prydaenese makes use of modification verbs to describe the tense of the action. The same setup would be used if the verb were running rather than runs.
Common Prydaenese Direct Translation
The woman runs. Ao hafaba y yilma. Is run the woman.
Example 2
Here, we have two subjects. Keep the same structure in the order of intention.
Common Prydaenese Direct Translation
The fruit is not a boot Ao a pahoka gonivi a ranaba. Is a fruit not a boot.
Example 3
Fairly simple break down here. We have the pluralization of the noun with suffix "en" and "my" is the modifer to the subject, so it comes before it.
Common Prydaenese Direct Translation
My boots. Ezi ranabaen. My boots.


Example 4
Using future tense, we modify the verb and the introduce the subject, then follow it with each modification that applies to the next subject, and so forth.
Common Prydaenese Direct Translation
I will hunt the brown deer and the black wolves. Chryea gecha ez y vigiyo rerataien grur y yuguru grotanen. Will be hunt I the brown deer and the black wolves.

Numbers

  • 1-10, 100, 1000, 10,000, and 100,000 are represented by their own words.
  • Multiples of ten are created by combining the single number with "ten"
Example: 30 - (three)(ten) - faiveg
  • For 11-99, adding a a number of the one's place is done with "grur" (and). The order follows the same grammatical order of Prydaenese where the number is described essentially backwards.
Example: 32 (two and (three)(ten)) - riz grur faiveg
