The Possessive Endings - Part II

As told in the las post, in Varga language, possession is given and shown by attaching suffixes to the noun. Suffix usage depends on vowel harmony, the amount of objets possessed, the person of the owner (I, you, their etc.) and if the noun ends with vowel or consonant.

PersonSuffixes

Meaning

mi “I”~im~oim, ~eimmy (...)s
ti “you”~id~oid, ~eidyour (...)s
ö “he/she/it”~yi~ai, ~eihis/her/its (...)s
biz “we”~ink~oink, ~einkour (...)s
tiz “you (pl.)”~itok, ~itek~oitok, ~eitek your (...)s
ök “they”~yik~aik, ~eik their (...)s

Examples:
  • men “table”: meneim “my tables”, meneid “your tables”, menei “his/her tables”, meneink “our tables”, meneitek “your (pl.) tables”, meneik “ their tables”.
  • gal “mountain”: galoim, galoid, galai, galoink, galoitok, galaik.
  • (*) deti “family”: detím, detíd, detiyi, detínk, detítek, detiyik.
  • tomo “friend”: tomoim, tomoid, tomoyi, tomoink, tomoitok, tomoyik.

Use of the suffixes above is allowed for nouns in singular forms only.

(*) Sometimes, the final vowel of the noun and the first of the suffix are the same. In this case, don't put them together; instead, make them combine as follows: i + i = í.
