The overall syntax of Darynse is OVS. The verbs are conjugated based on
politeness level and evidentiality. There are four levels of politeness in
Darynse. 'Casual' is used for two equals in an informal setting. It is
usually only used among family or close friends. 'Polite' is the standard
tense for two equals. 'Authoritative' is used when the speaker is in
charge of the listener -- most often with teachers, bosses, and adult
relatives speaking to students/employees/children. Using it all the time
makes you look rather egotistical.

As for the evidentiality, Darynese verbs can be conjugated based on
whether they are positive (the speaker knows this to be true), negative
(the speaker knows this to be false) or positive or negative hearsay (the
is uncertain of the truth of the statement, but thinks it is either true
or false).

The Darynese verb ai (to do) is irregular.

Adding /-ra/ to the end of the verb changes the meaning. For an
authoritative verb, it turns the sentence into a command. The suffix -ril
is used to turn a verb into a participle.

Adjectives and adverbs proceed the word they modify, and change ending to
match th gender of the noun. Darynese has ten genders. The ones used in
the above paragraph are listed in the suffix part of the glossary. Adverbs
are left in the root forms. Note that these rules are also used on
An indirect object is indicated by the suffix /-kul/.
