introduction dictionary grammar compound words

YGYDE PRIMER (unfinished)
February 7, 2011

The best way to start learning Ygyde is reading the Ygyde language introduction and its grammar. The most important and yet the most difficult tables to memorize are the prefix table and the adjective table. It takes about one month to memorize these tables. It is good idea to memorize the following pairs of adjectives and matching nouns. The pairs are called odypi (text siblings). The remaining tables are easy to memorize because their words are either related to the adjectives (like the noun siblings), or they follow a simple rule (numbers and colors). It takes about two months to memorize the prefix table and 400 most important words listed in the tables. It takes another month to memorize 1000 important compound words listed in the Basic English-Ygyde Dictionary and to learn the simple grammar of the Ygyde language. After three months of learning Ygyde you can speak simple sentences in Ygyde. If you do not know an Ygyde word, you make it up as a compound word.
