Sentences & Examples of Sentence Structure

Here is an example of how the sentence structure works. In the subject, when a noun is the object of a phrase, it is placed at the beginning of the subject, the rest of the phrase following it, typically the subject of the sentence follows the phrase linked to the noun that begins the sentence. Corpa ahm = of my body, then Sangi follows as the main subject of the entire sentence.

Subject Predicate
Corpa ahm Sangi / al Verdu ahti Vokis.
Translation
Blood of my body for the words of your voice.

Subject Predicate
Vokis ahm Verdu / rar Addus.
Translation
Words of my voice are given.

Subject Predicate
Corpa ahm Sangi / alti Fedi.
Translation
Blood of my body for your trust.

Subject Predicate
Anii ah Shindar / Pisa itha olel Alois.
Translation
Spirit of the soul pass over this warrior.

In the cases below, the imperative form of the verb bring is used, the subject “You” is implied, therefore the sentence is ordered thus so. The imperitive form is easily understood by the position of the verb in the sentence.

Predicate
Brenga Forcandis em’Bellal al Shanda ah Feda anca Indea.
Translation
Bring courage to fight for the light of truth here today.

Predicate
Patrokas Olel di Inscaf ah Fide.
Translation
Protect him from ignorance of honor.

A Bit of Reevaluation

I know it's been a while since my last post, but I figured I might as well throw out some updates. Anyone who has been following along should probably want to know that the first five short stories of the Colliding Empires have been released into a single file called "Volume 1."

Another thing that is probably the most notable is the fact that I haven't written a post since back in December. I've quite noticeably been derailed in both my blogging and my writing. I haven't done much writing at all. I apologize for that, but it is also one of my cycles that I definitely need to change.

The second, and most recent development, is that I've decided to remove myself from Twitter and delete my Facebook page. I felt that most of what was being put out to the internet on those media channels were shameless self-promotion. That isn't really what I wanted those to become. I don't like the idea of hitting people over the head with that message. And, to be qui…
