Are these words male or female?

If it ends in a consonant - male.

fug, I made a mistake
cмpт - female
мocт - male
in majority of cases however consonant ending is male though

Vocative case. You use it when you adress people. Only then do you decline nouns ever.

Its funny because English and Mandarin have almost the exact same grammar

There is case for gender where we have "her" or "him" but no neutral form. If you don't have that information, then you just don't have enough information to form a grammatically correct sentence.

What if there were cases that told you the age of the person? The profession? Ethnicity? Height? Income? Sperm count? DNA?

What if the amount of information contained in a sentence told you about everyone's past, future, and present... all their hopes and dreams, everything that made them a person?

I posted this on /sci/ once and someone said there's a book about an alien race that talks this way, but I forgot what it was.

>>54428271

I'm Chinese-Canadian and you're from Slovakia

>>54428374
Which doesn't prevent me from knowing that "English and Mandarin have almost the exact same grammar" is bullshit.
>>
>>54428449
Out of all the language I've studied (French, Italian Mandarin, German, Japanese, Arabic) English and Mandarin have the most similar grammar.
Of course they're not the same, Mandarin has no conjugation whatsoever but they are remarkably similar.
>>
>>54428276
We kind of have that, but its not distinct. You can tell a lot about a person by the words the use, and in what order they put sentences (At least in English, dont know about any other languages)

Read a book that was talking about how a quick way to build rapport with someone, is identify how their umwelt is built, and make it seem like yours is the same.
>>
>>54424925
Surely, you told to we.
>>
>>54428740
You can do it pretty much for any language.

>>54428544
I guess what you mean is that both Mandarin and English are "isolating" languages - more meaning = moar small wurdz. Yes, it is a similarity.

However, >>54428449 is right, the grammar isn't that similar as you're implying.

It.
>What if there were cases that told you the age of the person? The profession? Ethnicity? Height? Income? Sperm count? DNA?
Those aren't cases but distinct grammatical categories. Case marks the grammatical role of a word within the sentence and conveys no information about its nature.

aren't they still pretty stable in ending positions? Those are the ones that carry grammatical meaning so I couldn't imagine they'd disappear so easily unless they went a -> o and e -> just e or something. Total speculation I'm not well read on slavic nasal vowels and how they dropped out of the other languages.

Give them a break, they have a primitive language and no cultural identity so at least we can pretend to consider them a country.

It would be less insulting to call us a non-country than our language a primitive one. Not to mention this coming from a Pole since your lingo is a disastrous abomination.
