Inflection

Creation and Usage Notes

This pronoun was the bane of my existence. Noalath came out way, way too "shushy", and this pronoun had a lot to do with it. I never should've associated palatal consonant mutation with the objective. I probably should've done v-mutation and stuck Shushy McShushface with the vocative. Oh well. Live and learn.
