compound noun or embedded clause
verb box (aorist tense, used for general truths etc.)
verb box (auxiliary) (orientation does not matter)
present participle as adjective; (Esperanto's -anta)
verbal noun/gerund
adjective/numeral box
discursive (adverb)
adverb of manner
simple connector (used in case there is not enough space to connect boxes directly)

apposition (identity)
but, however (orientation does not matter)
because/therefore (can be orientated differently, but always points from reason to consequence)

Grammar: misc

  • In general, it is irrelevant at which side boxes touch each other,
    except for expressing cases (roles of verbs):
    • The nominative is expressed by making the noun (or noun phrase) touch the verb (or participle, or gerund) box on its top side.
    • The accusative is expressed by making the noun (or noun phrase) touch the verb (or participle, or gerund) box on its bottom side.
  • Pinuyo is pro-drop: the subject of a verb may be omitted.
  • In general, the orientation of boxes is important, unless noted otherwise in the box overview.
  • An apposition can touch an empty noun box. In this case, the empty box is considered to contain the same logogram.
  • Auxiliaries touch their main verbs as adverbs would and are never conjugated.
