Dionian verbs conjugate for tense, respect, and mood. The four tenses are past, perfect, present, and future, although in practice the latter two are far more common. There are no irregular verbs. Adjectives can also be conjugated as verbs.
Usage of Verbs
English is a subject-verb-object language, while Dionian is a subject-object-verb language. Thus, the verb almost always comes at the end of the sentence. Although pronouns can be dropped in Dionian, this isn't terribly common, because Dionian verbs do not make clear the person or number of the subject.
English: I drink water.
Dionian: Na silu qafune. / Silu qafune.
Nouns are actually the simplest things in Dionian. There is only one form of each noun, and they are not inflected. In fact, they're even simpler than English nouns. Here are the general rules for nouns:
- There are no articles (a/an, the)
- There is no difference between the singular and plural
Thus, for example, the noun gu could mean "thing", "things", "a thing", "the thing", or "the things".
Noun determiners, like "that", "this", "any", "each", etc., are treated as adjectives. They always come after the noun. The most important determiners, "that" and "this", actually have three forms in Dionian:
'e - this, these

ART VS MONEY
One of the most unpleasant problems in freelance, which I sometimes encounter, is apathy to everything. This is normal if you are a workaholic and live by fulfilling other people’s needs. But, over the years of such a “life”, at some point, I’ve had an epiphany—I want to be an artist, not a wage worker. Just create art the way we like it and bluntly sculpt images for dough—
