Evidentiality



Evidentiality may be added to sentences by simply adding a particle right before the intended verb. The particles may be declined using the possession endings to improve understanding and/or show who said, although it may not be necessary.

nebnon-witnessing certainty
"not-so surely"
Quantum Fund pekunjomot saikol neb inbestozojoň.
[I trust] the Quantum Fund is investing my money the best way.
bałhearsay,
someone else's comments
Gazolina bałom da šok takai.
I heard gasoline is very expensive.
uładcitation,
quote

muznałdubiously,

That's all for now.
