Smooth Translation

And now the second part: magical tongue

Let us sing!

Spirit of spirits receive the brightness of your spirit.
The spirit of Iqapep receives the brightness of all men.
While the plant spirit doesn't give it
if the fire spirit would not fight it
The spirit of Itana works until night
The spirit of the lake works in the manner of the lake
The spirit of the wind gives wind sot that the head and clothes are blown upon
The spirit of the tree gives shade and protection from danger
The spirits of goodness give goodness to them
The spirit of love gives love to all men.
They lead weak men and children, make them calm and forces them to love each other
And it is good forever

Grammar

This language is VSO. It is highly inflected and employs complex verbs, although there aren't truely a lot of these forms in this text. There are several cases which are used in this text out of the original seven, and these inflections are put on the end of noungs. Pronouns are also inflected as nouns. Adjective roots can be conjugated as verb roots, and are considered to belong to the verbal class. If an adjective modifies a noun, the adjective must take on an "Adjectiveal Derivational Morpheme" ('ted' in qangr), but it remains uninflected. Since the verb is highly inflected, this language drops the subject of the sentence if it can be implied by context. No determiners are used in this language. There are two moods in qangr - subjunctive and indicitive.

Noun Structure:

Root + (NDM) + plural + inflection

Verb Structure:

(tense) + Root + inflection + (mood) + (negation)

Passive Construction:

Main Verb + vodnok + Object (NOM) + Subject (INST)
