Grammar

The overall syntax of Darynse is SVO. The verbs are conjugated based on politeness level and evidentiality -- only the authoritative positive (-nyae) is used here. The imperative tense (-nyaera) is also used heavily -- in cases where it is used multiple times, or in which the subject is indefinite, the subject may be understood.

The suffix -ril is used to turn a verb into a participle. This also can be used to make compound verbs, identifying clauses, or occasionally adjectives.

To create a conditional sentence, the suffix -kao is attached to the end of the verb statingthe condition. The next sentence must begin with kebeni (because of this).

Adjectives and adverbs proceed the word they modify, and change ending to match the gender of the noun. Darynese has ten genders. Only one (object (-e)) is used in this text. Adverbs are left in the root forms. Note that these rules are also used on participles. A noun is pluralized by attaching /al-/ to it as a prefix. An indirect object is indicated by the suffix -kul and is usually attached to the verb.
