The very first word.

Today, I made up the very first word: Kaalajur! I finally figured out what it means!

Kaa-la<ju>r
1PL.INCL-speak<NTR>
We speak.

I figured the following patterns for the verb conjugation:

Agent-root<negative><transitivity>-aspect-degree-volition-epistemic-patient, where the negative and the transitive/intransitive distinction are realized as infixes to the root.

The Agent-Patient pattern changes with the sentence being in standart/question or polite word order:

Standard/Question: Agent-V-Patient

Politeness: Patient-V-Agent

The rest of the affixes stays the same.
