kinds of genitives
« on: March 02, 2011, 07:41:17 am »
Non iam Latine loqueris (semper linguam Graecam potius) sed velim quaeras grege hominum.

Quomodo Latina Graecaque Na'vique "genitive"s diversus?

  • Attributive Genitive - (Semitic origin) y-ful x
  • Possessive Genitive - x belongs to y - super common in Na'vi
  • Descriptive Genitive - x characterized by y
  • Partitive Genitive - x is part of y - Na'vi uses "ta"?
  • Material Genitive - x is made of y, or x contains y
  • Subjective Genitive - x is produced by y.  - Ex. Lì'fyari leNa'vi oel 'efu ayngeyä tìyawnit = I feel that you love the Na'vi language.
  • Objective Genitive - x is directed toward y
  • Plenary Genitive - both objective and subjective
  • Genitive Absolute (Ablative Absolute) - while?, topical?
  • Ablative Genitive - x stems from y
  • Genitive of Time - during x - Could be -o but instead, fìtrrä ftxozäri
  • Adpositional Genitive - x, which is y
  • Descriptive Genitive - x is characterized by y
  • Genitive of Comparison - than x
'Ivong, Na'vi!

Non iam linguam Latinam loquor (...) sed velim quaero e grege hominum.

Quod interest inter genitivum linguae Latinae, Graecae, Na'vinis?

Descriptive Genitive - x characterized by y
Don't know, maybe like -na
Material Genitive - x is made of y, or x contains y
I think it is possible, Ex. naer payä - a dink (made of) water
Genitive of Comparison - than x
I think not, that's only with to.

Vale.
