3.0 nominal morphology
Nominals in ámman îar are inflected for definiteness, number, and case.
Although ámman îar has productive gender formatives -îel and -an,
these are not considered inflectional. This is because these formatives
are derivational rather than inflectional and are, therefore, discussed in the
section dealing with derivational morphology. I make this distinction
because these formatives grant clear semantic content to the roots to which they
are applied while exhibiting no grammatical or syntactic functions such as
in edhanisse eleth en in edhielis erdulmiraen
(atrasiri inhathlasiri anitumidh )
