Singular versus plural: ending with a is singular and i is plural...so Vala is man and Vali is men, right?
Well, for some words that is correct, e.g. muña, taoba, riña etc. but for, "azantys" the plural is, "azantyssy" and for, "hontes" the plural is, "hontesse".
That's how I understand it, but I'm not adept so it's likely I'm wrong
That is correct. 'a' is singular, 'i' is plural.
Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuch a cool language!
I understand that vali is men and vala is man, but how do I know which to pick here? What would the wording be if I did vala?
If it helps, here's a conjugation table for sagon (to be):
Iksi : I am
Iksā : you are
Issa : he, she is
Iksi : we are
Iksāt : you all, you guys are
Issi : they are
So vali issi, but vala issa.
Actually, iksan = I am:
Vala issa = he is a man
Vali issi = they are men
Issa is singular third person and issi is plural third person :)
A new word was introduced, but was not spoken. Am i to assume it sounds like issa just ending with an i?
The high valyrian course has just recently started to get audio (like less than a week), so most of the words and phrases still miss audio. But they will get it soon :)
And the i in the end of issi sounds like the i in the beginning of the word :)
