Rules and Conjugations 1


Like franquesse, Nahelean acts like a sub-fluent sounding language, so words ending in a vowel sound gets contracted with the next word beginning with a vowel sound. (Eg. vo'sakk'heze; the "i" gets replaced with an ', and gets combined with "heze"). This rule applies to all words falling under these conditions.

Words such as "eul" and "au," meaning "of the," gets contracted because "of the" is a very common phrase to use when referring a=n objects origin.
