Rules of Grammar
- Make plurals with an "S" on the end of the word. If there are special ways to make a plural word, such as "ES" and "IES", use them.
- There are four wordends to change each of the 300 nouns: -"ER" and -"ING", and the two adjective wordends, -"ING" and -"ED".
- Make qualifiers from adverbs with the wordend -"LY".
- Talk about amounts with "MORE" and "MOST." Use and know -"ER" and -"EST."
- Make opposite adjectives with "UN"-
- Make questions with opposite word order, and "DO".
- Operators and pronouns conjugate as in English.
- Make combined words from two nouns (for example "" or "wordend") or a noun and a directive (sundown).
- Measures, numbers, money, months, days, years, clock time, and international words are in English forms.
- Use the words of an industry or science. For example, in this grammar, some special words are for teaching languages, and not part of Latika: grammar, plural, conjugate, noun, adjective, adverb, qualifier, operator, pronoun, and directive
- Every operation (with a few exceptions) must end in "i" or "í"
