Is it OK to change my mind?
New rule: if the direct/indirect object contains more than one word (ex.: noun + adjective), then the case marker goes to the verb, pointing toward the object.

I can eat delicious meat.

Toliman:
Good work here  :)

It's ok, I think

Quick lesson about age and years.

For the moment, the concept of year is nebulous and probably different to ours. You'll prefer to use the word for 'cycle', which is thirathira.
Now, if you'd like to express the age, a possession or an attribute is inappropriate in Vok language. The word to use is velam. The verb used is transitive and means 'pass through'. You can pass through the forest, the river, the pathway or cycles.

Example: Velamevekáthirathira. Navekáuathakthi.
Pass I (acc.)(plural)cycle. One(acc.)(pl.) sixteen.
I'm 16 years old.

It's cool to see that this is still in development :)

That's a cool word for cycle, using reduplication. I like it.

Makes perfect sense to me

Definitely a fascinating structure. I'll be thinking on this. :D
