Grammar differencesEdit

Plurals are formed in Wilik by adding the prefix -elem to the noun. Adjectives which modify a plural noun are also pluralised, in the same way. In English, adverbs are created by adding the -ly suffix to adjectives, however in Oba'ese they are created by adding the -defeng suffix to adjectives. All verbs in Wilik are regular.

Wilik English
Twelveëlem voiceëlem beëd shouting angerdefeng, enelm juline beëd all alike. Nae question, now, what happened tan perat faceëlem een perat pigelem. Perat creatureëlem outside looked fraëg pig tann man, enelm fraëg man tann pig, enelm fraëg pig tann man again: but it beëd impossible to say which beëd which. Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.
