Vitruvian Fairy

Adjectives and Fort-Shifting (Updated)

Adjectives are formed by replacing the gendered vowel of a noun with y and suffixing CV, where V is the gendered vowel, and C is the final consonant after a process of fortition and/or shifting, or fort-shifting as I call it.

The rules of fort-shifting are as follows:

- all Rs, Ls, and N become D, except in fairy or angelic gender, in which they become T

- M becomes B, except in fairy or angelic gender, in which it becomes P

- J becomes G, except in demonic gender, in which case it becomes Q


Examples:
cara (friend) -> caryda (friendly)
dasu (mouse) -> dasytu (mousy)
pan (woman) -> pynda (feminine, womanly)
tan (man) -> tynda (masculine, manly)
vo (demon) -> vybo (demonic)
