Dyrel is SOV.

The nominative case marker is sometimes eclipsed by the construct state.

Roots in Dyrel are generally nouns and are never verbs. Where verbs are nominalized in the gloss, they are actually nouns by default, and no process is occurring to result in nominalization; it is merely there because a noun gloss is difficult to find in English.

Glossing abbreviations you may not know:
voc - vocative
