Grammar

Nouns in the Ancient Language have gender and cases denoted by particles. There is no nominative case particle though plurals are denoted with a vowel added to the end of the word in agreement with the gender.

The only singular gender denoted in a nominative word are heroic nouns. These are preceded by either Remel or Nuremel, the titles for heroes.

Plural particles are meant to agree with the noun, typically by adding the same vowel as the particle to the end of the word.
