The exact use of the important prepositions
The names of the consonants end in "ee": (hee, jee, kee, lee, mee, nee, pee, see, tee, vee).
(From Savo language)
o = or (disjunction), ∨
u = or (xor -gate, either..or)
e = not, ¬
i = if...then, ⇒
y= if and only if, ⇔
jy = 2,
ky = 3
ly = 4,
my = 5,
ny = 6,
py = 7,
sy = 8,
ty = 9,
vy = 0,
tesy = 10,
hehty = 100,
kily = 1000,
meky = 1000000,
kiky = 1000000000,
tely = 1000000000000,
Following the use of the noun ending -o
Example: ve ho = my
the house, a house
If something needs to be in a definite state, the words 'this' and 'that' can be used.
The nouns are split into two types: natural and man-made.
Man-made in this sense is anything created or processed by humans.
Natural nouns end in “o” and man-made nouns end in “os.”
This system allows you to assign more meanings to less roots.
Verbs in misil end in a. If an
action is done by humans or by man-made means and needs to be
specified as such, the word ends in the man-made marker as.
Verbs are never conjugated for number or person, and they can
all be used with or without direct objects.
Verbs in misil are ambitransitive; they can act transitively or intransitively depending on the presence of an object or prepositional phrase. Verbs do not conjugate for person, number, tense, aspect, or mood.
There is no perfect tense.
If a verb happened in a specific time period, the particles are not required, as it can be inferred from the context.
These particles all end in "e" and go before what they describe if applicable.
Compounds are formed by putting two roots together, separated by a dash:
(book) + (series) = (book series)
Words can be compounded as many times as necessary:
If a compound word would have a consonant cluster, an "e" sound can be placed in between the roots.
On this level, misil word order very closely matches English word order. "SVO" stands for "Subject-Verb-Object". For extremely simple sentences like "I love you" or "he eats glass," the word order of misil matches that of English, literally, word for word. Keep in mind that "SVO" doesn't include little details like articles (a, the, etc.) or prepositions (to, for, etc.).
Subject + Verb + Object
Subject.Modifiers - Subject - Verb.Modifiers - Verb - Object.Modifiers - Object
A big cat quickly ate a small mouse.
*The tense particles (me and ke) have priority over adverbs. (see "Multiple Modifiers" below)
In misil, time words can appear in one of two positions in the sentence: either at the beginning of the sentence (before the subject), or directly after the subject. The structures are:
Time + Subject + Verb + Object
Subject + Time + Verb + ObjectSubject + Time when + Manner + Location + Instrument + Target + Verb phrase + Time duration
An interrogative correlative demands an answer that matches its function in the sentence.
le + -ov- correlative + adjectives + noun
adverb + (se, nae) + (me, ke) + te + verb
Adjuncts are extra pieces of information (in this case, prepositional phrases) that also go after whatever they modify
