Đâu-Gequơrxi (lit. [the language] of those who say đâu [for '2']) is an Azalic language. Like English, it descends from L-Old English. It is inspired by Vietnamese.

It is in the Ăn Yidiș-Cubrite sprachbund.

Orthography

Đâu-Gequơrxi is natively written in either the Hebrew alphabet or a Latin orthography based on the Lõisian Old English orthography.

Nouns

Two cases (nominative and genitive), no gender

  • Genitive singular is always -x or -ơx

The definite article is invariably . There is no indefinite article.

Umlaut, known in Lõis as affection, is used for some plurals: for example,

Verbs

Only the imperative/infinitive survives in lexical verbs. There is also a passive participle in -ơd (only used as an adjective).

Auxiliaries

  • Im ot het = I eat/I am eating (lit. I am at eating)
  • Im pho het = I have eaten (lit. I am after eating)
