Bare with me as the sections are a bit unorganised at the moment. I'll try to keep this thread organised in the future, potentially with a table of contents with links to specific posts but for now I"m just going to keep updating this first post until it becomes too painful to keep working in it.
3rd person pronouns used as copula for object and property predication.
Past tense marked by preverbal particle.
I’m debating on how much inflection to have but I want a lot of aspect and tense to be represented with particles for verbs.
Genitive nouns follow nouns, linked with particle.
Pronouns have singular, plural distinction. 3rd singular will have separate inanimate and animate forms but will be purely semantic. 3rd plural will be one form.
Word order is SVO or SOV depending on definiteness of direct object.
April 26, 2020: Just a note, at some point I am working on the classical/middle form of the language which will supplant a lot of the information in these early posts. I'll retire this thread at that point and link to the new one. After I create the classical/middle Kojikeng language I'll also have a late/new/modern form, however you want to think about it.
