Talk originated in the sea and at the beginning of the temporal world. It was very very good. The foul came into being and put its true signification in the sea; this made talk flee from the things talk made frightening. The foul caused there to be an inability to distinguish between the very good and that which the foul feared. Everything truly foul, I understand.
Because it would be a hopeless task to explain sufficient Livagian grammar in prose or note form, I've supplied the annotated sentence diagrams. Reading the diagrams in conjunction with the glossary should make the meaning clear, while at the same time giving some sense of how the grammar works.
The function of asterisked items is not explained; the information they convey is captured in the annotated sentence diagrams.
