Word order: usually SOV, but the order may change for emphasis since Neimalu uses case endings to show the function of the words anyway. Singular and plural words are not indicated differently (there are group markers, but they aren't used in this text). Also, there is no definite or indefinite article.

Present, past and future tense in verbs are marked with -os, -öns and -aþ if the subject is known. Instead, a personal marker may be used (in this text -eid instead of ladu + -öns).
