Extensive (but not full) grammar at: You should get on rather well if you know some Scandinavian, because Azurian is an extra Scandinavian language. The general word order is SVO, with modifiers preceding heads, but if the subject has modifiers, they usually change the word order to VSO. Nouns are inflected for number, definiteness, and case. Adjectives are inflected similarly and have various ways of agreement depending on class. Verbs are conjugated in tense, aspect, mood and number. There is a variety of adverbs and pronouns with various functions.
