Adjectives/Adverbs

all adjectives/adverbs refer to spectra. suffix the number of standard deviations from the mean the desired quality is

tall-0 is average height (~5’4”)

tall-2 is either ~4′ or ~6’8” (http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?t=crmtb01&f=ob&i=human%20height)

Everything Else

pronouns are conjugated like nouns except in the inessive case where

“I” and “you” both become “kay(f)dan(f)tuw(t)fob(p)san(t)ap(t)”

“there” becomes “kay(f)dan(f)tuw(t)glo(t)yai(b)bai(b)san(t)ap(t)”

non-case endings are applied as normal

pronouns have the following abbreviated froms which can be prefixed to verbs. the first prefix is subject, second direct object, third indirect object

I  kay(f)-
you  dan(f)-
we  kay(f)dan(f)tuw(t)-
he  kay(f)dan(f)tuw(t)glo(t)-
this/there glo(t)-
they yai(b)bai(b)-

note that pronouns other than “I” and “you” must be declared with the verb “dan(f)yist(t)a(b)mar(b)ap(t)”, which takes the pronoun as subject and the referent as object

nothing else has conjugations
