The grammar is, at its simplest, verb-subject-object. Adjectives follow what they describe. There is also the concept of ‘flanking’ words and phrases. Flanking words surround the entire sentence.
For a rough example of Tyra Tarkush’s grammar:
“Despite the rain, he went to the crowded store.”

Questions have ‘ishramel’ as a flanking word and ‘si’ as the ‘unknown’ being questioned but can also be a placeholder.
The language is non-gendered and has no concept of gender.
