This is a post explaining the basic rules of syntax and grammar for the language of the ravens of antimony. These rules may change as the language of evolves. The ravens of antimony language is a Subject–Verb–Object (SVO) language much like English, and is a head initial language in all aspects.
Below are some syntax rules for how statement should be connected together
- Subject then Verb then Object (SVO)
- Head then Initial
- Noun then Adjective
- noun then determiner
- determiner then adjectives
- Verb then Adverb
- Verb then Noun
- Preposition then Noun
- Possessee then Possessor
- Noun then Honorific
- (any part of speech) then modifier
- Auxiliary then Verb
- Configurations then State
The two configurations:
The two configurations is a part of the spiritual understandings of grammar in the ravens of antimony. By placing one of these words at the beginning of your statement the user will declare how the energy of the spoken word is going to interact once said, if there is no configuration used the energy will stay in the area, until it eventually dissipates. It is a way of controlling the energy of the spoken word, and is used primarily in chants and incantations. The two configurations are known as Dama, and Dasa, and they are used before the state of the statement, if there is one.
Dama = Projective, yang, masculine, Damakna
Dama will tell the statements energy to be projected outwards, and is good for casting energy upon other things.
Dasa = Receptive, yin, feminine, Dasakna
Dasa will bring the energy of the statement inward, so that it can interact with the individual who is speaking at upon them and they’re being.
The five states of the Ravens of antimony language:
The five states will be used at the beginning of a statement after any form of configuration, and will determine how the energy manifests. Each state will bring its own energy to the statement empowering it with that understanding, and fervor.
- Intention of hostility, aggression, and power = Uknaoxava
- Intention of love, calm, and emotions = Shaknaoxava
- Intention of logic, good communication, and inspiration = Naknaoxava
- Intention of groundedness, sternness, and nurturing = Daknaoxava
- Intention of great spiritual understanding, religious zeal, and divine unity = Skaknaoxava
In order to ask a question at the end of the statement you will need to place the word “Oya” in order to make the statement a question.
In order to show possession all you must do is place the word “Iba” after a noun, or pronoun, then the word that it is possessing afterwards.
Tense is different based upon what word you use at the beginning of the sentence, after the configuration and/or the state, if no tense is in this place the default tense is present, and the present tense word. The present tense word can be used for clarification, but it is not necessary to include always.
- Past tense word = “Jaskadala”
- Present tense word = “Daskadala”
- Future tense word = “Yaskadala”
In order to make a word plural you need to put the word “Ona” after it, this will modify the word before making it plural.
Increasing, and decreasing power:
The word “Aiokna” is used like the word “very” in English and is a way of drawing emphasis, and spiritual power of the word that it modifies. The opposite of “Aiokna” is “Oacki” which reduces the emphasis, and power of a word that it modifies. Both of these words are used after the word that they will modify.
The word “Onakna” is used before an assortment of different letters to represent that that next word will be a number. The number is decided depending upon what letters are used in the next word.
- Ya = 0
- Ma = 1
- Ga = 2
- Ar = 3
- I = 4
- Ka = 5
- Sa = 6
- Xa = 7
- Æ = 8
- Ja = 9
- Modifying word that changes nouns to the opposite of themselves = “Opawa”
- Modifying word that changes nouns to the cute form =”Oshasha”
- Modifying word that changes nouns to adjective or adverb form = “Oqaja”
- Modifying word that changes adjectives to nouns form = “Oqata”
Releasing the energy of the statements:
The word “Skaar” can be applied to the end of the statement in order to release the energy of the statement out into the world. This word is usually used in chants and invocations though it is not necessary to put it on the end of every statement, and is usually only used with statements that hold a lot of power. This word is used a lot like the word “Amen” or “So mote it be”. It is also used at the end of communication as a respectful send off.
