High Lornesian
A lexicon for the Lornesian Language

This functions like a translation dictionary, bridging High Lornesian and English. In addition to the lexicon, you can find grammar and syntax rules for the language below. We always welcome additional words and rules for all of the languages, if you would like to see anything added, please submit an entry to the Addenda.
Sentence structure
Sentence structure is largely the same as it is in English, but with a few exceptions.
ADJECTIVES AND ADVERBS: Any adjectives or adverbs will come after the word they modify. In some cases, they will be attached to the beginning of the word, creating a new word entirely, however, instances of this are rare.

PRONOUNS: Pronouns are more commonly used than proper names and sometimes are entirely implied. A sentence may discuss a subject that doesn't even appear in it, but is implied because of previous conversation.
ji (singular nominative); nir (plural nominative)
mone (singular accusative); untre (plural accusative)
vou (informal singular nominative); toie (formal singular nominative)
voui (informal plural nominative); toiex (formal plural nominative)
ve (informal singular accusative); toi (formal singular accusative)
veis (informal plural accusative); tois (formal plural accusative)
ir (masculine singular nominative); ie (feminine singular nominative)
ire (masculine plural nominative); iea (feminine plural nominative)
sien (masculine singular accusative); seina (feminine singular accusative)
siene (masculine plural accusative); seinai (feminine plural accusative)
Gendered Nouns
All subjects are gendered in Lornesian. The default for all subjects will be male gendered, so, if no gender is needed or a male gender is implied, the masculine form of a word will be assumed. If a female gender is intended, the subject will change to the feminine form.
MASCULINE: language default
FEMININE: after a consonant or vowel, add -a.
The end of a noun changes depending on whether that noun is singular or plural. Determiners will also change depending on whether the subject is singular or plural. Depending on the word itself, and the ending letters, different changes will be made to the noun or determiner in order to make it plural. All words are singular by default. Below are the various changes made to words in order to make them plural. Please note that a word that is gendered will undergo that change before it is made plural and doing so may change the rule applied to it when selecting the appropriate pluralized form.
