    I'm looking forward to seeing the new clues and getting back to this with some time in my hands! Thanks for the heads up, Ruben!

    Phew, haven't looked at this in a while! I was trying to make some sense of the last clue but my brain is fried. Just for reference: "Time is the fire in which we burn" - "Sermate va'umezhi u zanon vemi anirezhi." I think 'semi' corresponds to 'we' (Nominative) and sermate to 'time'... So... if I got things right, the only dative we don't know for animate and inanimate nouns (excluding Proper) is the inanimate plural. If I got these right: Animate Sing. = -ir // Animate Pl. = -eri // Inanimate Sing. = -ena There's also 'Zana' in the poem, which technically would be nominative animate for fire unless it's a different word altogether (like art and beauty discussed earlier). But we already have those two datives, so I'm a little confused. It might be a different formation altogether rather than a straightforward 'fire we burn in'... I'm tempted to go for accusative as well!

    Hiya, @Ruben Haven't been online much in the last few days for a few reasons, but I wanted to get back to the dragons and, gathering the last few clues, I wanted to ask about a few thoughts. About the -ut ending - Is it an adjective ending that also includes a 'to be' verb, used instead of umeth whenever an adjective is attached to a noun? The very first two lines seem to me that either this is the case, or that there aren't any verbs in them. 'Varezhut' would make sense as (we are) grateful. I might be terribly wrong! I think that at this point it's safe to say that vkr+ending means all, mkr+ending means what, bamre is when in a previous clue and I'd guess bamra means time. I believe that 'tshêgerakh' (lack, or not-have) is a combination of the negative and the verb 'to have', and gerakh, to have. -okhr is the accusative singular for inanimate nouns. -ena is the dative singular for inanimate nouns. -esh seems to be the (or a kind of) past form of verbs. The following ones I'm not completely sure about: -eni is the nominative for inanimate, plural? -eri is the dative for animate, plural? -rir is the dative for animate singular?

    Wait, question: which one of the two are correct about the 'in depth' translation? It's been confirmed that -okhr is an ending for accusative on previous posts, but here Allinor says dative for zal fenena... And also that 'mrokhr' means 'what', which is similar to 'umrokhr'. Does draconic have double negation, by any chance?

    Hmm... am I to assume that for proper nouns and pronouns, adjectives don't share noun endings then, if Varezhut means 'grateful' (as in 'we are grateful')? I am a little confused with all the new discoveries and will need to take some time to process, but I've liked the clues thus far!

    I think it works like the German 'es gefählt mir', where zhir takes the dative form. Something like 'made up for them'. Oh, true!! Very true! I have a few thoughts on clue 6 but will need to organize them when I get home tonight!

    I thought -ut was Proper in some sort of nominative from the thank you message on Kickstarter (Varezhut Zhir = 'grateful to you'), but the two might be completely different things. Maybe this is a '-grut' or '-rut' ending. Yes! I am kinda confident that is accusative singular. Sorry about the confusion - it was past the editing period and I have so much stuff open on my screen! I don't know what tsalkokhr means, it could be any sort of noun in accusative; I'm only confident it's a noun because it appears by itself with that ending in that sentence!

    I meant to write singular and inanimate and not plural/animate here! My brain is not cooperating this week! Agreed; Ruben mentioned that va' is a prefix on verbs that indicated lasting, as dragons live for a long time, and I guess it makes sense to have it added to nouns as well. It would make sense to be with 'others' and... would that mean that it's an animate dative plural ending?

    From this I think 'Mire' is vision/sight and 'mireth' is 'to see', as we've established that -th is a verb infinitive ending... Umeth/Umezhi are 'to be'/is respectively, and feksa really makes sense as 'art' being that 'fekse' means beauty! I agree and think that 'tshêmiregrut' is probably 'invisible', making 'tshê' a negation prefix. I also think 'mrokhr' means 'what'', making that ending accusative plural for... animate nouns ("seeing what")? This clue makes me think that the word order in Draconic is really unique though, as the order of the verbs will take a bit of work!

    Oh! So just really quick before I can really go back to thinking about this - so in Draconic, abstract entities like 'Darkness' and parts of beings such as 'eye' count as animate nouns, correct? And on another question... may I assume that in case of Varezhut Zhir, since Ruben has confirmed that adjectives take the same ending as nouns like Spanish, that -ut would be a Proper noun plural nominative ending (In the case of 'we are grateful to you')? I don't know if that'd be for ones ending in consonants or vowels, but I thought it was worth a shot!

    That would make a lot of sense, I forgot to go back to the 2nd clue. The only thing confusing me here is 'u tsalkena' in a previous post as well, which also seems to be a singular dative noun, and the fact that the last clue has the same ending on both adjectives and nouns should that be the case...

    Yay! Yeah... I think 'Vezhe Arte' corresponds directly to 'Our Planet' since most languages have possessives before nouns (and given capitalization), but I'm not completely sure if draconic has the same adjective-noun order as English. 'Alaureni' appears on the poem and I think it's most likely to mean 'lonely' than 'speck' given the context and considering that adjectives in Latin can come after the nouns (and in Russian, too), but I could be wrong. Are -ir all dative endings for adjectives? I remember -ena was the singular genitive ending for inanimate nouns, which leads me to think that no words in 'fenutir vqrutir zherir' there work as nouns!

    Oh, I'm very excited to hear that! Kudos for the dedication, Ruben; this is going to be absolutely amazing, I'm so glad I found the Kickstarter!

    Oh, awesome! Looking forward to it - apologies for extra eagerness and all the guessing, I love this kind of thing and I've really been very into this. Do you guys have plans on releasing a full Draconic Grammar in the future, by the way?
