(mahamodo : yømamodo, xemamodo, wemamodo)
Paucal is the number for "some" (from latin paucus, few)
The subject group never has mark of number and only the verb has it :
The adjective (= genitive or participle) is usually unvariable.
O yofure abewataya rapixate wemaluza amatuwa.
But the meaning can demand the number of genitive be marked :
(*) toko : sexualy neutral word for son (viritoko) or daughter (gunetoko)
Other use of collective prefix for plural :
He was sleeping under the leaves of an oak. (litt : "under the foliage")
There is a dual prefix (bi-) for braces :
(*) Some lexicographs claim that bisekatexo means "tool
cuting twice", so "scissors" should be named sekabitexo, "double tool for cuting".
(*) root values noun or verb : kewi = calm, peace
Negation (a-) is not inversion (wi-) :
(*) : mo- is contracted form for mu-wi- (see the page nahameri).
Other examples :
NB : you can only forgot that you knew. You can remember not that you never knew.
Usually, negation is before the other prefixes.
The use of passive participle -wa make prefix de- useless (-ya = active participle) :
But negation shoud be about part of meaning only :
NB : shrunk forms : ge- + wi- = gi- ; mu- + a- = mo- ; de- + mu- = du-
No shrunk forms for ku-.
Negation follows some prefixes :
Examples : yo- (active individual), wo- (passive individual)
(**) french : je-m'en-foutiste (popular french : je m'en fous ! = I don't care about !)
NB : capacity infix (-be-) is useless.
For grammatical words (made with some prefix and case suffix), the suffix is added to the negation :
There is usualy only one negation in a proposition :
You can change change the order of ideas with using impersonal :
It happens never that.
Other example :
(neg-hope-present-I undetermined-accusative pl-god-ablative pl-king-abl)
I don't hope anything from gods (and) from kings.
("I hope nothing neither from gods nor from kings", words from a french song :
NB : "nothing" is said ama (neg-quantity) :
