Re: Proto Makurungou progress thread

Makurungou now uses a split ergative-nominative case system. With Nominative-Accusative being used in the 2nd person and Ergative-Absolutive being used for the 1st and 3rd persons.

Re: Case Survey

I'm especially interested in the dative case. Those of you who have a dative case, how is it used? I guess most of you use it for the recipient/indirect object to a ditransitive verb like "give". (Though not all natlangs with a case conventionally labelled "dative" do this...) Can your datives also...

These can be placed as either prefixes or suffixes, More than 1 case can appear per noun. Nominative (Optionally marked in speech, Always marked in writing.) Accusative Genitive Locativ...
