Thoya conlang: Passive and reflexive verbs
In Thoya, basically all verbs are transitive. To use them reflexively or passively, move the subject into the object position and have no subject. 'ɪxu reŋ' = 'I hide', despite the 'I' being in the object position. It could also mean 'someone/something hides me'. If the distinction is important, you can specify a subject: 'reŋ ɪxu ne' = 'I hide myself'; 'rɪn ɪxu reŋ' = 'someone hides me'.
