Except where stated here, each letter has the same meaning it does in the IPA.

  • ch: /x/
  • sch: /ʃ/
  • w: /v/ (/w/ after k)
  • d: /t/ at end of word
  • th: /tʰ/
  • ä: /æ/
  • ö: /œ/
  • ü: /y/

Capitalization rules are as in German - that is, the first letter of each sentence, and the first letter of each noun, is always capitalized.

The word order is SVO. Adjectives come after nouns.

There are three genders: feminine, masculine, and neuter. There are three singular definite articles: for feminine, lie, for masculine, ler, and for neuter, las. There is one plural definite article: lie. There are two singular indefinite articles: for feminine, une, and for masculine and neuter, un. There is one plural indefinite article: unige. The plural markers for feminine, masculine, and neuter nouns are -en, -er, and -e, respectively. Masculine nouns also gain an umlaut above their final vowel (with resultant pronunciation changes), unless that vowel is E or I. The genitive case is marked with the suffix -de (a cognate of French/Spanish/Portuguese de and Italian di). The loctive case is marked with the suffix -an. The accusative case is marked by word order; only the pronouns have accusative-case marking.

The infinitive of a verb has -en at the end, as does the imperative. Here are the (unfinished) verb ending tables; the ordinal number refers to person, the endings are in Theadisch orthography (as opposed to a phonemic transcription), and the first is singular and the second plural (the only reason they're not labeled is due to what seems to be a glitch in MediaWiki):

First Second Third
Present -e -en -te
Imperfect -wi -sti -wit
Future -po -pis -pit
First Second Third
Present -en -tis -en
Imperfect -en -is -en
Future -en -tis -en
