Morphology ans Syntax Edit
Verbs in Nyazish have lost the near and remote past distinctions present in Proto-Shodot. they have been replaced by a general past tense. In the 2nd person cells, the conjugation undergoes consonantal mutation based on if the verb ends in a vowel or not; when a verb ends in a vowel, add the M form, and add the Y form on verbs that end in consonants.
The imperfect is formed by prepending the auxiliary vasā and moving the conjugation to the auxiliary. Verbs are perfect by default.
To form the progressive, prepend the auxiliary a, but do not move the conjugation.
e.g. vasāšu ma sāmi "I had hunted"
Nouns in Nyazish are also cut down, losing their dual inflection. Thematic nouns end in vowels, and athematic nouns end in consonants
Much like Proto-Shodot, Nyazish distinguish other cases with prepositions and particles.
- Genitive: yon
- Instrumental: aiš
- Vocative: ā
This allows for much more complex classes, since a noun can, say, be both genitive and ergative.
Nouns are indefinite by default. To make a noun definite, prepend ši.
Personal Pronouns Edit
Pronouns in Nyazish are identical to those from Proto-Shodot, semantically speaking. Pronouns conjugate like normal nouns.
