Basic Sentence Grammar in Pravic

Sentences in tvo-Pravic are formed with a simple set of rules. There is little scope for variation of order for topicalisation. The rules are:



A typical Pravic sentence structure would be:

aPilil Romy SHorda PRemu atiZammen goCHon.

The-book red was-put-by carefully on-the-table John.

Sentential Words

Some words, like yes and no, can act as a complete sentential utterance. These words can take prefixes. For instance, yes is Tys, and no is maTys (sometimes miTys or moTys). Adverbs and Adjectives can also act as sentential utterances. So careful! is PRemy!; and a valid response to the question what colour is the book? (aPilil Pone Sacheln?) is Romy.

Conjunctions

Conjunctions act in three roles: to link words of similar type together; to link phrases of similar type together; and to link whole sentences. They therefore work similarly to English. They always have the same form. A list of conjunctions is given here.
