Cinderella's Story tells the history of a ruler's daughter whose's mother forces her to transmute straw into gold.
The nameless lizard aids her escape and they join the army to avoid the Queen's dwarves and Santa's pigs.
Some time later, after a few battles between various groups, Cinderella and the nameless lizard meet Peter Pan and blow up a space ship.
I would continue telling the story, but my sister stopped writing it.
OVS, though experiencer subject precedes the verb (making it OSV)
genitives, adjectives, relative clauses (in square brackets), and postpositional phrases all precede the corresponding noun.
adverbs precede verbs
auxilliaries follow verbs
verbs take an obligatory aspect suffix followed by an optional valency-changing suffix
ol i Nonpast el e Immediate past y a Mid past/indeterminate past uh ul Remote past
That is, the nonpast dictionary form of an auxiliary verb would have "i" or "ol" while inflected past forms would keep the same consonants but change the vowel as above.
