Basic Lessons

This section of the tutorial covers all the basic elements of Primal.  You'll learn the alphabet, the grammar, and the structure of the language.

The Basic lessons are not designed to teach you to speak Primal.  These lessons are an introduction and reference guide to the structure of the language.

For those intent on learning Primal, it is recommended that you skim through the Basic Lessons first, with special attention to the Alphabet and Grammar lessons.  Don't try to memorize it all.  Take a walk through these lessons and digest what you can.  You will return here for reference later.

The following sections, in order, comprise the Basic Lessons:

Alphabet how to read, write, and pronounce Primal script
Grammar overview of the elements of grammar and sentence structure
Nouns noun prefixes, noun suffixes, and proper nouns
Pronouns overview of all pronouns: personal, syntactic, and user-defined
Unary Suffixes list and description of the unary suffixes, and how to use them
Verbs verbs, and verb tense and mood (verb prefixes and suffixes)
Prepositions list and description of simple prepositions
Noun Phrases modifying subjects and objects, preposition prefixes
Verb Phrases the direct object, objects of the verb, conjunctions, modifying verbs
Numbers using numbers to quantify nouns, verbs, and prepositions
Basic Dictionary list of all words other than nouns and verbs, plus pronouns

Some of the Basic Lessons assume that a reader will have familiarity with previous lessons in the list, so the order is important.  Once you have completed a short read of the Basic Lessons, you may want to continue with the Survival Lessons, which will teach you how to say common things in Primal.
