Smooth English

There is living statue in a corner of house. It tells (narrates) a story and hopes for pleasing.

A man and his little fox are sleeping near the statue. Little fox starts to wake up and shouts because smoke is rising from the statue. The smoke is rising and twisting, then becoming small and dissapearing. There is much snow on the big house. The snow is smooth like apple skin and very beautyful. However, man and little fox are the only ones, who see the beauty. The man laughs.

English translation of previous text



Emyt is highly synthetic language, using S O-V syntax. Some suffixes require previous consonant mutation, e.g. vegiś + -ek -> veginśek.

The most important cases in declension are genitive, possessive and verbial forms:

  • Genitive is made from nominative by deleting final '-t' (only if root is ending with '-at -et -it -ut -yt');
    N. elban, elbanet -> G. elban, elbane.
  • Possessive is made similar to genitive, but also by adding '-to' (if root is ending with '-p -v -r -l -k'), changing '-ot -h' to '-oto -to' and changing '-ś -j' to '-śi -zi';
    N. elban, elbanet -> P. elbanto, elbane.
  • Verbial form is made from possessive by changing final vowel to nasal and changing '-śi -zi' to '-śę -zę';
    N. elban, elbanet -> V. elbantǫ, elbanę.

As you see, in most cases nominative and genetive have the same form.

Genitive is used in relation/possession constructions and as direct object. I should've admitted that genitive is placed before head noun or verb, and connected with hyphen.

In the second sentence there are implied subjects (pro-dropping).
