Direct Objects

Direct objects are indicated by the preposition an, however in context, the N migrates onto the noun, leaving a behind. Often, the remaining a is dropped, but the migrated N remains.

When the noun begins with a vowel, the N simply gets tacked on.

Examples
an elyn > a nelyn > nelyn
an uryg > a nuryg > nuryg
an abyran > a nabyran > nabyran


When the noun begins with a consonant, a nasal mutation is caused. The nasal mutation turns unvoiced consonants into voiced, tacks an associated nasal onto voiced plosives, group 1 fricatives, L and R, turns group 2 fricatives into NG, and leaves nasals untouched.
