Thematic nouns are nouns that end in a vowel. Athematic nouns are those that end in a consonant. There is no grammatical distinction between the two classes. Nouns do not have gender. In addition to the three base cases, there are three more indicated by prepositions:

  • Genitive u
  • Instrumental ish

This allows for much more complex cases, as you can have two-case words like ish uvsharpia "with a spear."
