Past Tense - Two People

Two parts need to be added to the end of a verb, one for the "doing" person (left column)" and one for the "done to" person. There are four "Done to" columns, one for a verb done to me/us/you (red), him (yellow), her (green) and them (blue). To make a word, pick a doer, then pick the person its "done to", making sure you match the colours of the two.

Who Doer Done to (Me/Us/You) Done to (Him) Done to (Her) Done to (Them)
I eh ni ni ni ni
We na na na na na
You (He) ka ka ka ka kha
You (She) ki ki ki ki khi
You (Men) koom koom koom koom khoom
You (Women) ken ken ken ken khen
He oo yo wo oh oh
She ah ya wa ah ah
They (Men) om yom wom om om
They (Women) en yen wen en en


For example:
I helped him = Hagezeh yo
He helped you = Hagezeoo ka
She helped us = Hagezeki na
They (men) helped me = Hagezeom ni


Many verbs involve doing something for someone rather than to someone like "write for". In this case add the sound "el" between the endings

I helped him = Hagezel yo
He helped you = Hagezeool ka
She helped us = Hagezekil na
They (men) helped me = Hagezeomel ni
