lesson 2: nouns

back to fynotek lessons page

now that you know how ablaut works, let’s apply it to some nouns! Ablaut marks noun case, or the role that the noun/pronoun has in the sentence. Fynotek marks 4 cases:

because the ablaut marks what the noun is doing in the sentence, the noun can go almost anywhere in the sentence without the meaning changing.

in addition to ablaut, nouns can receive some suffixes, in the following order:

finally, since some words have definitions in multiple parts of speech (for example, “hyr” means both “language” and “to speak”), you can attach the optional prefix “a-” to mark that a word is a noun. This can clear up ambiguity.

congratulations! now you can conjugate nouns in Fynotek!
