Crootch (baazdul Krotol' / бааздул Кротоль) is the main language of Crootchistan. It is very far related to the Basque language, but, in general, the language is not similar to any existing language, especially in its sounding.

The language almost does not have borrowings and does not have articles at all. It also has no genders. Stressing in the language is not stabil. The Crootch language uses a complicated system of tenses and cases and its grammar is very not typical for an European language as well as the grammar of the Basque language.

Crootch is an agglutative language, what means that different suffixes and endings can seriosly change the meanings of the words.

The names of the language Edit

The original name Krotol' / Кротоль comes from the Crootch word kroozo – "a spirit".

In order to make the word krotol' to mean particularly the language (since this word can mean any Crootch thing, for example, culture), the word baazdul, meaning "a language", is frequently added.

In English the language is officially called "Crootch [kʁut͡ʃ]";

in German – die Krutische Sprache;

in Polish – język krócki, there is a Polish saying "Język krócki, nie krótki, ale okrutny", meaning "The Crootch language, not short but cruel";

in Basque – Krutsiera;

in Russian – кручский язык;

in Romanian – limba crotolă;

in Moldovan – языка кроталэ;

in Turkish – kruça;

in Spanish – krucho or la idioma krucho;

in Navajo – Łichííʼ Bizaad [ɬit͡ʃi: piza:t] "the red language", the Navajo name can have two meanings: either they described this way that the language is unclear for them (the same way the Sioux described the Cheyenne language naming it "red") or they meant that the language is beautiful (for example, in Russian the word "красивый ("beautiful")" came from the word "красный ("red")";

in Bulgarian / Macedonian – кручки език (Bg.) / jазик (M.);

in Serbian / Croatian / Bosnian / Montenegrin – кручски jезик (Sr.) / krućski jezik (the others);

in Italian – Krocio;

in French – krutchais [kʁut͡ʃɛ];

Grammar Edit

The order of the words in sentences is free, except for some rules, for example, norha – "to be" always stands at the end of a sentence. Plural is made by means of tne endings -ch (if a word ends with a vowel) and -ach (if a word ends with a consonant); if a word ends with kh, then plural is made by means of the ending -sh.

Crootch tenses, as opposed to English, must be very precisely used. For example, if you have a thing or if you see something exactly now, you must necessarily use Present Continuous. Verbs conjugate only in the Continuous tenses.

Present Simple and the rest Edit

Verbs never change. This tense is used to say about things you do always or in general: Fingilla rou nevunga voshuge – "I see the friend often"; A-mikhlaitok murhichi rou – "I like to run/I like running".

En – "is/are": Doorka en gel'ved – "The song is good". Doorka en gel've-ta – "The song is not good".

Another construction means using nay – "which/who is/are": Doorka, nay gel'ved – "A song, which is good"; Velkha, nay shufuri – "A person, who is nice". 

Participles are made by means of the next rules: 

if a verbs ends with -a and -u, it is always cut, then if after it a verb ends with -m, -sh, -v, -r, -rh or -i you add the ending -igu (-gu in the last case): varhum ("to come") – varhumigu ("coming"), gel'vetosh "to improve" – gel'vetoshigu ("improving"), sarham ("to understand") – sarhamigu ("understanding"), shoiva ("to write") – shoivigu ("writing"), mikaru ("to help") – mikarigu ("helping"), narhu ("to do") – narhigu ("doing") etc.; 

if the verb ends with -k or -g, -d, -kh, -z, -s or -n you add the ending -u: shaltuk ("to sleep") – shaltuku ("sleeping"), bazda ("to locate, to situate") – bazdu ("locating, situating"), varrakun ("to ask") – varrakunu ("asking"), divyenrokh ("to remember") – divyenrokhu ("remembering"), balza ("to know") – balzu ("knowing"), toivotaas ("to give") – toivotaasu ("giving"), navigolzag ("to discover") – navigolzagu ("discovering");

if the verb ends with -t you add the ending -tu: bonyoshet ("to pay") – bonyoshettu ("paying").

Adverbs are made by adding to adjective and participles the ending -ya; moreover, if a word ends with a vowel, it is often cut (but this rule is never used if a word ends with a nosonant): ashagel' ("beautiful") – ashagel'ya ("beautifully"); turnrooki ("nice") – turnrookya ("nicely"); kisiyoki ("amusing") – kisiyokiya ("amusingly") etc.


dayogon ("exact") dagongo ("exactly");

arvoshku ("entire") – arvotuko ("entirely");

domasii ("strong") – domasko ("strongly");

cheagoon ("true") – cheango ("truly");

raviyoki ("serious") – ravituko ("seriosly");

mardrook ("constant") – mardrol'go ("constantly").

Postpositions in the language is an important part, too. They are mostly used after adjectives. For example, the postposition -shot can be added to the end of the adjectives, which end with -l' and -i; this postposition means "completely, absolutely, fully":

ma'achagel'-shot "absolutely magical".

gulumi-shot – "absolutely soft".

The pospositions -yol' and -toki mean "very"; -yol' is used with most of the adjectives:

turnrooki-yol' "very nice";

shorkash-yol' "very horrible";

doshin'yoki-yol' "very curious".

The postposition -toki with the same meaning is used if a adjective ends with -l':

tumunzel'-toki "very scary";

ashagel'-toki "very beautiful";

mazivel'-toki "very sick/ill".

This postposition is also used with all the adverbs:

gel'vedya-toki "very well/so well";

vidulikhya-toki "very clearly/so clearly";

maakhgel'ya-toki "very sadly/so sadly".

The most common postposition -ta (ta) is used with any part of speech and means negation:

m'yok-ta "not a cat";

katoru-ta "not kind";

sagamita "not to forget".

The word aksh ("that") can be converted into a postposition, too, if a word to which it should be added ends with a vowel or -n, or -k:

Eshekasum roivash, ni-anm'yosuga [ɛʂɛkasum rojvaʂ ni-anmjosuga] "I said that it is beneficial";

Nin shayooki, ni-gel've-dayo, a-norhash [nin ʂajo:ki ni-gɛlvɛ-dajo a-noʁaʂ] "It can be that it will not be good";

Darumdzo, fingoniel' nagash [darumdzo fingoniɛl nagaʂ] "I think that you are intelligent";

Baldzo, ni-chorronash [baɫdzo ni-t͡ʃor:onʂ] – "I know that it is bad";

Taruni baldze, nin makhgel'yoksh [taruni baɫdzɛ nin maxgeljokʂ] – "Nobody knows that it is a sorrow".

Degree of comparison always depends on the adjective's ending:

ashagel' ("beautiful") – ashagella ("more beautiful") – ashagel'khe ("the most beautiful");

shlisarhuk ("wet") – shlisarhuka ("more wet") – norhishlisarhuk ("the most wet");

mautoru ("fast") – mautorua ("faster") – mautoruzok ("the fastest");

otumaall ("important") – otumaalla ("more important") – norhiotumaall ("the most important");

gulumi ("soft") – gulumia ("softer") – gulumizok ("the softest");

shorkash ("horrible") – shorkashu ("more horrible") – norhishorkash ("the most horrible");

shukumaan ("strange") – shukumaana ("more strange") – shukumaanzok ("the most strange");

edulikh ("late") – edulikhe ("later") – edulikha ("the latest");

fokhlovete ("interesting") – fokhlovetea ("more interesting") – fokhlovetezok ("the most interesting").


gel'ved ("good") – samkhet ("better") – gel'vezok ("the best");

domasii ("strong") – domassa ("stronger") – domazok ("the strongest").

To say that you, for example, like something the most, you always use zok:

Murhichi rou khleyne zok – "I like autumn the most".


nrou [nrou] – "I am";

naga [naga] – "you are (not politely)", Enmiku – "you are (politely)";

nrui [nruj] – "he is";

neiva [nɛjva] – "she is";

nin [nin] – "it is", the word na means "This one is";

naika [najka] – "we are";

naiga [najga] – "you are (plural)";

nrouku [nrouku] – "they are".

Future Simple Edit

This tense is used when an action is meant to be in the future, but not a process. This Crootch ending for the Future tenses is always -yo. However, It can be added to any word in a sentence, not only to verbs. the same as in Present Simple, verbs never change:

Daoshook inaflized rouyo daruma azantoga [daoʂo:k inaflizɛd roujo daruma azantoga] – "Maybe I will think this way in the future";

Nin shayooki, velkhamura koldzuayo, a-norhash [nin ʂajo:ki vɛɫxamura koɫdzuajo a-noʁaʂ] – "It can be that the people will regret";

Noshoiva dumgel'ya aika nazukulyo [noʂojva dumgelja ajka nazukuɫjo] – "We will meet each other again as well (not once in the future)".

Present Continuous Edit

The Continuous tenses in Crootch are always used when the action is meant to be a process.

Verbs conjugate in this tense with the next endings: rou ("I") – -dzo; aga and Miku ("you" – not politely and politely) – -dza; rui/eiva/in ("he/she/it") – -dze/-dzel'; aika ("we") – -dzu; aiga ("you" in plural) – -dzal'; rouku ("they") – -dzol'.

Making the Continuous form out of a verb can be a problem for those, who do not speak the language: it is not always clear how to make this, for example, shegami ("to speak") – shegamdzo; shekasum ("to say") – shekadzo; shenarhu ("to admit") – shenarhudzo etc.

Pronouns in the Continuous tenses are almost always not used because the verbs have enough information.

Past Continuous Edit

This tense is made by means of the same endings as Present Continuous, but additionally by means of the ending -khe: Shlidzokhe – "I was crying"; Narhudzakhe "You were doing" etc.

Future Continuous Edit

This tense is made by means of the same endings as Present Continuous, but additionally by means of the ending -yo (and again, it does not matter to wich word in the sentence you add this ending): Shlidzayo – "You will be crying"; Makhel'teveyo kishin'yaki narhudzo-ni – "I will be doing it today for sure" etc.

Present Perfect Edit

This tense is always used when it means that the action has been finished.

The tense is made by adding e- to the beginning of a verb. If a verb starts with i-, you cut it and add e- instead: narhu ("to do") – enarhu; ikushi ("to meet") – ekushi.

If the tense is used in a sentence without a pronoun, you must add du to the end of the sentence: L'youk evarhum du – "The boy has come/The boy came".

If there are the pronouns in a sentence, you need to convert them to the "perfect" form:

rouroiva [rojva];

aga/Mikuteirhu [tɛjʁu];

ruikeirhu [kɛjʁu];

eivaeiśi [ɛjɕɕi];

inchin' [t͡ʃiɲ];

aikadorhu [doʁu];

aigadeirhu [dɛjʁu].

Examples: Ekashvidzoka dorhu ake [ɛkaʂvidzoka doʁu akɛ]"We have left the house/We left the house";

Kishin'yaki enevinrokh-ni eiśi [kiʂiɲjaki ɛnɛvinrox-ni ɛjɕɕi] – "She has read it today";

Esarhami keirhu tuvumgel'ya [ɛsaʁami kɛjʁu tuvumgɛlja]"He has understood finally/He understood finally" etc.

By adding the ending -nen to the pronouns in the perfect form you can express "already":

Ekhvoshida roivanen [ɛxvoʂida rojvanɛn] "I have already joined";

Enevunga eiśinen [ɛnɛvunga ɛjɕɕinɛn] "She has already seen";

Enarhu teirhunen chukuttu [ɛnaʁu tejʁunen t͡ʃukut:u] "You have done enough already".

Future Perfect "Far" Edit

The tense is used when it is meant that an action will happen in the future, but not certainly. As opposed to Present Perfect, in this tense you do not add e- to the beginning of a verb. Like in most of the Crootch future tenses, you add -yo to any word in the sentence:

Chinooke dorhu lyeachugyo [t͡ʃino:kɛ doʁu ljeat͡ʃugjo] – "We will have found the forest";

Shekasum eiśiyo, krok ni-narhu [ʂɛkasum ɛjɕɕijo krok ni-naʁu] – "She will have said how to do it";

Magul'shiida myekhotaryo goondzu du [magulʂi:da mjexotarjo go:ndzu du] – "The bird will have died soon".

Future Perfect "Close" Edit

The tense is used when it is meant that an action will certainly happen in the nearest future. As opposed to the "Far" Future Perfect, you add the -ne instead of -yo. If a verb ends with -a, -u or -i, you have to cut it, but -a is sometimes not cut. If there are no any pronouns in a sentence, du, as opposed to the "Far" future Perfect, is not needed:

Roiva ikushne rumige [rojva ikuʂnɛ rumigɛ] – "I am going to meet a friend/I will have met a friend (very soon);

Dorhu chugekhlane ina-mende [doʁu t͡ʃugeɬanɛ ina-mɛndɛ] – "We are going to climb this mountain/We will have climbed this mountain (very soon)";

Ikachne l'youk tonokhle [ikat͡ʃnɛ ljouk tonoɬɛ] – "The boy will have learnt the lesson (very soon)".

Present Perfect Continuous Edit

This tense is made by the same endings as the other continuous tenses, but to make this tense you, to addition to the endings of the Continuous tenses, need to convert the pronouns to the "perfect" form:

Shegamdzu dorhu 3 (iru) lin'yok-doch [ʂɛgamdzu doʁu iru liɲjok-dot͡ʃ] – "We have been talking for 3 hours";

Lyeayodzo voshuge roiva [ljeajodzo voʂugɛ rojva] – "I have been looking for a friend";

Darumdzol' chigo ashka-do [darumdzol t͡ʃigo aʂka-do] – "They have been thinking for a week".

If there are no the pronouns in a sentence, you add du to the end of the sentence:

Gushtu bagol-do nevinrodze l'youk du [guʂtu bagoɫ-do nɛvinrodze ljouk du] – "The boy has been reading for the whole day".

Passive Voice Edit

Passive Voice exists in the language only in two forms: present and future. It is made by using "to be" or the pronouns in the "perfect" form (but it is not necessary and the pronouns can stay in the "present" form) together with the prepositions ve- and yo-:

Nin venarhu [nin vɛnaʁu] – "It was/is/has been made";

En vesagami doorka [ɛn vɛsagami do:rka] – "The song was/is/has been forgotten";

Vetumunza nrou domasko [vɛtumunza nrou domasko] – "I was/am/have been strongly scared".

The preposition -yo is used when a verb already has -v-:

Yoravesha neiva naceeyrhu falguuda [joravɛʂa nɛjva nat͡sɛ:jʁu faɫgu:da] – "She was/is/has been born in a big cave";

Yovungi azantogayo teirhu chogiliizhen [jovungi azantogajo tɛjʁu t͡ʃogili:ʐɛn] – "You will be/will have been noticed in the future for sure";

an exception: Yochogil'yoga dorhu arvotuko ina-velkhum [jot͡ʃogil'joga doʁu arvotuko ina-vɛɫxum] – "We are/were/have been entirely convinced about this person".

Text extracts Edit

"Mainly, this popular book tries to teach, which way is the best for that to behave correctly in hard situations. It is obvious that very terrible and also cruel events happen in our generation. Such a book is able to be useful for people".

Below are short extracts from a famous Crootch book called "A weirdo from that forest (Shukumavelkha na-chinokko)".

Inka flidda shufuri shigill. Evishaakha moonoren shel'gyetuz mekhlate-o kishin'yaki a-norha, kaygullmeli noodun akhluyooshel fachung viaguk-do norhka, du. Nazukul munshrok a-tomuza kundayooke chinooka, Eniisi eshamdzok a-zulshuka falguude, iva nrui shayooki a-lyeachuga nazhguvel' smavche fingilla, du. Kay shrolingkh enokadzeva chin' makhel'teve shukumaanya...

"It was another nice morning. The weather was going to be quite warm today, however the sky was a bit gloomy. Before to start a hunt in the forest again, Eniisi decided to check the cave, in which he is often able to find tasty mushrooms. But this time it turned on really weirdly...".

Tarokato koldzook shelyoke, Eniisi lyeayoodzekhe. Kina-bagol cheango dzogul druicen untukrok shelkavookh vatukkusu-da norhka. Barto shaal etomuza keirhu a-vishaniima toirua chorronya, kaygullmeli kishin'yaki inka domassa. "Tarhven tonnug en shayooki a-balza kao nin. Shigo drui lyeachuga!" – inku drumlingach-yen; "Makhel'teve ni-chorron-yoli, aksh tarhoku ni-sik'yatokhvo a-lyeachuga tonnuge, beigayarhu. Drua falguuda seigo shroka norha, kay nin vebazda voorhimya-toki arhko...".

(The same in Cyrillic) Тарокато колдзоок шэлъёкэ, Энииси леаёёдзэхэ. Кина-багол чэанго дзогул друйцэн унтукрок шэлкавоох ватуккусу-да ноթка. Барто шаал этомуза кэйթу а-вишаниима тойруа чорронъя, кайгуллмэли кишиньяки инка домасса. "Таթвэн тоннуг эн шаёёки а-балза као нин.

"Despite his bad state, Eniisi was looking for. This day was for sure hard for him because his health was very not stabil. Last night he started to feel quite badly, however today it became worse. "Only the shaman can know what is that. I must find him!" these were his thoughts; "It is certainly very bad that it is never possible to find the shaman, when you need him. He can be in the cave now, but it is located so faraway from here..."

"(A monologue #1) I have been knowing that! It is easy to understand even without experience that they hated me. No, no, I am absolutely not angry. I only want to realize completely whether I should do anything. I do not feel it is a suitable evening for this in anyways. I can sleep, but should I? Today is certainly the time when I am able to change it forever! Well, there is tiredness, which is killing me. I will think tomorrow".

"(A monologue #2) I hate this weather! It is simply not able to become worse already! It is significant to understand now well whether I must move or wait here. In a big forest with such weather it is hard to find even simply a tree, not mentioning a cave. Despite it, the time does not wait as well as my health. I usually trust my eyes... What is that right there?..".

– Baldza, aksh? Enavigolzag roiva cheango śyorgel' drotte, nay dumgel'ya shonsuvi.

– Nistoki drotta mokhvagel' tarhven shalyokka voorvatu lingra-do.

Shavokhla makisoki lingru, chigo elyeatoiva naceeyrhu chinooke, iva Eniisi lungshoode toiva du.

– Tomishootu ni-vokhla-ta, Drelshik. Chinooko vatuksua shingyokhla. Taseigo lyeachuga drotte, nay shtel'gakhe!

– Gulomsheyarhu ina-chinookum, ni-khyorhgel' in-do a-sinchiika... Kaygullmeli nrou shibo. Tunshukan' vokhlayooke.

"(A dialogue)

– Do you know what? I have discovered a truly pleasant place, which is also silent.

– Such a place is possible only in a dream (while sleeping) nowadays.

– No! I understand that it is difficult to believe. Well, I will simply show. Follow me!

After some time, they reached the big forest, in which Eniisi had his home.

– I know about this forest. I heard that it is a scary place.

It is absolutely not true, Drelshik. The forest lives in calmness. We cannot find a safer place.

– After the things I heard about this forest it is hard to believe... However I am ready. Show me the truth!"
