Yoruba grammar rules
Yoruba is an isolating language, i.e. it has a very low morpheme per word ratio.
Although Yoruba has no grammatical gender, it does have a distinction between human and non-human nouns. There are no definite and indefinite articles. Nouns are not inflected for number. Plural is indicated with a plural word or a pronoun placed before the noun.
