The standard word order is subject-verb-object, though this can often be changed to stress certain words or phrases. There are two genders, two grammatical cases, and a distinction between plural and singular. Adjectives are compared as in English, and are also inflected according to gender, number and definiteness.

The definiteness of nouns is marked primarily through suffixes (endings), complemented with separate definite and indefinite articles.
