Torn World: Relative Pronouns

Previously we discussed personal,impersonaldemonstrative,indefiniteinterrogative and reciprocal, and reflexive pronouns.  Now we're going to cover the last batch, relative pronouns.

Relative pronouns connect a relative clause to the rest of the sentence.  In Torn Tongue, they begin with “vr” and use vowels from the noun class set.  Note that they're related to the interrogative pronouns; some of these are the same. Those whose English equivalents end in “ever” begin with le-  in Torn Tongue.

English ..... Nominative ..... Objective ..... Genitive
who ............ vral .................. vra ................. vrai
what ........... vrol .................. vro ................. vroi
which .......... vrim  
that ............. vrir  

English ........ Nominative ...... Objective ...... Genitive
whoever ......... levral ................. levra ............... levrai
whatever ........ levrun ................ levru ............... levroi
whichever ....... levrim
