Valdyas is a fictional country in a fictional world. Ilaini is an invented language. I invented it for my own enjoyment and that of anybody else who enjoys it. It has no scholarly pretensions. Please don't make a fool of yourself by using my language pages for your linguistics case-work.

As with the first and second person pronouns, the subject forms are only used for emphasis. Prepositions take the object form; postpositions and -ez are fused with the object form.

The (grammatical) subject of impersonal constructions is lea, not lean or leane.

Special meanings

Ilea and ili also mean "both, two"; alea and ali also mean "all, everyone, everything". There is also the emphatic ayali "everything" with a double prefix.


Negatives: nalea "nobody", nali "nothing".

Indeterminates: salea "someone, whoever" sali "something, whatever", sayali "all kinds of things, various". Also aliye "anything (at all)" often used with negations.

Interrogatives: culea "who", culi "what".

In formal usage only epicene forms of compound pronouns exist, but masculine and feminine forms occur in the spoken language: salye "some woman", culei "who, which man".
