It's an alignment, one where there is no case marking, or arguments, or verbs, or words of any kind because the speaker shed eons ago the mortal imperfection that is language.eldin raigmore wrote: ↑14 May 2018 21:24Is eldritch a voice?

as for the "making the passive tense into a regular present one, by some other eldritch means?" part, I am not sure.
In any case, I think the sentence was meant to read: Theoretically by making the passive voice into a regular active one, by some other eldritch means?
I don't know if such a thing is plausible, but I'd be interested to hear what other, more knowledgeable people think.
