This dictionary is a simple list of equivalences of
Tundrian and English words, phrases and expressions.
Each entry consists of a Tundrian word, phrase or
expression with its English equivalent. There are six columns in the
- Tundrian entry
- Numerical index
- Part of speech
- Declensional / Conjugational irregularities
- English equivalent
Where a Tundrian entry has several English equivalents,
it is not repeated for the 2nd, 3rd etc. repetition. Where the Tundrian entry is
the same, but the part of speech changes from transitive to intransitive verb,
the part of speech is specified.
In the Tundrian column, compound words and phrases are
indented under the main entry they are included under.
Only two kinds of grammatical information are provided for
Tundrian words and expressions:
- for nouns, gender and number (the latter for intrinsically plural
nouns) are indicated: f - feminine, m - masculine, m/f - may be of either
gender, pl - plural
- for adjectives, the feminine singular is shown (usually
as -a) where it is different from the masculine singular
Abbreviations for part of speech are:
||national noun and adjective
||possessive adjective and
The numerical index differentiates between homographs that
either (a) are different parts of speech, or (b) have a significantly different
The information under irregularities provides sufficient information for the prediction of all forms of the noun, adjective or verb in question.
For nouns, irregular nominative plurals are the ones generally given, the accusative plural is shown only when it is not clear from the other forms. For adjectives, the abbreviation invar. is given if the
adjective does not vary with gender. If an irregular plural is shown, it is generally speaking the masculine nominative plural.
For verbs, the 1st person singular of the inducative present is the one most commonly given if in any way irregular. Other froms are shown when necessary to indicate irregularities not predictable from the infinitive or the
1st person singular of the indicative present.
The English entry provides grammatical information (e.g.: pl - plural, n. - noun etc.) if it is needed for disambiguation.
