General informationEdit

Currently being Redesigned

Alegna /a.le.ɲa/ is a Western Romance language. It is notable for its sandhi (li sacrefezo) occuring between words. Unlike French's liason, sandi in Aleña mostly affects vowels.

L'alegna ês ugni lengudigo dil oês. Ês chognocedoi di le sacrefezo jed èxeste en les pavolix.

[lal.'eɲɛs uni le.'ŋu.'di.go dil o.ɛs ɛs ʃo.ɲo.'ce.doj di le sak.ʁe.'fez.o ʒed ɛ.'xest‿en les pa.vo.'li].

In many areas, Alegna is more conservative the other romance languages (e.g. it kept octo [okto] < OCTŌ), but Alegna was innovative in other areas (e.g. chadoi [ʃadoj] < QUATTOR].

It is the official language of Saldrena (Alegna: Saldrêna [saldʁɛna]) and the lingua franca of the planet Niovis (Alegna: Niovis [njovis]).

Alegna makes no phonemic distinction for vowel length

DipthongsEdit

Alegna has the following dipthings: /aj, oj, aʊ, jV, wV/

OrthographyEdit

The spelling of Alegna is mostly regular. There is an almost one-to-one correspondence between sounds and letters and almost every letter written is actally pronounced (exceptions include <x> and <gn> see below).

Letter Sound Letter Sound
A a [a] B b [b]
C c [k], [s] before [e, i] Ch ch [ʃ]
D d [d] Ê/È ê/è [ɛ]
E e [e] F f [f]
G g [g], [x] before [e, i] I i [i], [j] in dipthongs
J j [ʒ] L l [l]
M m [m] n [n]
gn [ɲ], silent at the end of words ng [ŋ]
O o [o] P p [p]
R r [ʁ] S s [s]
T t [t] U u [u], [w] in dipthongs
V v [v] X x [x], silent at the end of words
Z z [z] Ai ai [aj]
Au au [aʊ] Oi oi [oj]

The use of accentsEdit

Alegna has two types of accents: the grave (è) and the circumflex (ê). Both represent the same sound, but are used in different places. È is used at the beginning of a word (exept êt - and, ês - is), at the end of a word (unless the preceding letter is j), in the cluster mèn, in the infinitives of -ièr and -uèr verbs, and in many three letter words such as pèr, pèd, sèp, and sèx. Ê is used in all other contexts. The rules are not completely strict though, so spelling should me memorized.

The accent used throughout a word a is consistant, so if the word contains è, è is used throughout the word.

StressEdit

Stress in Alegna has become very regular. If the word ends in a vowel, the stress falls on the antepenultimate syllable. If the word ends in a consonant (except <x> or <gn>), the stress is on the ultimate syllable.

SyllablesEdit

Syllables in Alegna are relatively simple. The are consist of at most (C)V(C)(C). Examples V - ugn [u] VC - ês [ɛs] CV - li [li] CVC - frazes [faʁ.'zes] VCC - ils [ils] CVCC - èxeste (when followed by a word starting with a vowel) [ɛ.'xest]

MorphophonologyEdit

In order to prevent hiatus, and ensure a smoother connection between words, Alegna has developed a system of morphophonology called li sacrefezo (literally "sacrifice"). In certain environemtns, certain sounds will change or reappear. The rules are summarized below

1. <x> and <gn> are silent at the end of a word unless the following word ends in a vowel. Then they become [x] and [ɲ] (gn becomes [n] when the next word starts with [i]).

2. When a word ends with the same consonant as the following word, the last consonant is dropped. 3. /i V/ > [ø‿jV] when V isn't [i] 4. /u v/ > [ø‿wV] when V is't [u]


5. When a word ends in any other vowel and the next word starts with a vowel, the lower and/or more back vowel is dropped (e.g. Alegna ês /aleɲa ɛs/ > aleɲɛs). If the two vowels are the same, then the word final vowel is dropped and the word initial vowel is kept.

6. /n/ > [ɲ] and the end of a word when the next word starts with a vowel that isn't [i].

The rules don't apply across punctuation marks.

GrammarEdit

NounsEdit

No se daice "trên" mazex "mêtro" - We don't use the word "train," we say "metro"

Nouns in Alegna are split into two genders: masculine and feminine, and two numbers: singular and plural. Unlike Latin, nouns in Alegna only decline for two cases: nominative and oblique. There are also only 3 declensions in Alegna. Due to sound changes, many declensions differ only in the written form and sound identicaly

Case UsageEdit

The nominative case is used when the noun is the subject, in comparisons, some compound noun constructions, and as the object of some prepositional phrases. The oblique case is used in all other contexts. Certain prepositions change meaning with a change in case, for example di + nominative translates as "of;" di + oblique translates as "from."

Posessive ConstructionsEdit

Possesive constructions are formed using di + a definite article and noun in the nominative case (note that the definite article combines with di).

Example

The child's father - Li patre dil negno [li patʁe dil neɲo] or Li patre dila negna [li patʁe dila neɲa]

The dogs' water - L'aga dils chagnox [laga dils ʃaŋo]

The women's coats - Los apregox dilas mozax [los apʁego dilas moza]

PronounsEdit

Nox nos amamox moltox - We love each other very much

Personal PronounsEdit

Personal pronouns in Alegna are much more inflected than nouns. They have retained infletions for the nominative, accusative, dative, genitive, and reflective case. When two pronouns are listed, they are listed in the order of masculine, feminine. Strictly speaking, Alegna is not a pro-drop language; however; it is common to drop pronouns in informal speech and writing.

NOM ACC DAT GEN REFL
Singular 1st me mi jo, ja me
2nd tu te te tu te
3rd il, ilod, la lo, lo, la ili suox, suox, suoxa se
Plural 1st nox nox noix nostro, nostra nos
2nd vox vox voix vostro, vostra vos
3rd ils, ilas los, las lis suox, suoxa se
T-V DistinctionEdit

Alegna has a T-V distinction.

tu, vos and the 2nd person form of the verb are used in informal situations (when addressing friends, children, family members of the same or younger age, coworkers, religious deities in some religions, and people you wish to insult).

il, ils and the 3rd person form of the verb are used in formal situations (when addressing older family members, teachers, teachers, bosses, religious deities in some religions, royalty, scientisits, etc.)

Demonstrative Pronouns and AdjectivesEdit

Demonstrative pronouns and adjectives are the same in Alegna. Demonstrative adjectives agree in number, gender, and case with with the noun they modify. They also contain the last vestiges of Latin's neuter gender.

ces - this
singular plural
MASC NEUT FEM MASC NEUT FEM
NOM ces ceso cesa cex cesax
OBL ceso cesi cex cesix
ês - that
NOM ès èspo èspa èsox èspax
OBL èso èsix èspix

AdjectivesEdit

Vace clen - It's hot

Adjectives in Alegna must agree in number and case with the noun they modiy. If they end in -o, or -oi, they must also agree in gender with the noun they modify.

Adjectives that end in -o, -oi

rozo - red Singular Plural
Masculine
NOM rozo rozos
OBL rozo rozis
Feminine
NOM roza rozas
OBL roza rozis

Other Adjectives

Adjectives that end in a vowel

êcle - equal Singular Plural
NOM ècle ècles
OBL ècle èclis

Adjectives that end in a consonant

clen - hot Singular Plural
NOM clen clenes
OBL clene clenis

Adjective PlacementEdit

Most adjectives follow the noun they modify However, adjectives relating to "goodness," age, size, and determiners precede the noun they modify. Adjectives may also be placed before the noun to emphasize a certain quality of a noun, especially when there is more than one adjective. In addition, some adjectives change meaning depending on whether they precede or follow the noun.

Adjective Following Preceding
novo Brand new New to owner
pab Poor (little money) Poor (unfornuate)
grandi Large Great
antigo Old Ancient
rix Rich Sweet
mêzmo Itself Same
ugnegox Unique Only

ComparisonEdit

Most comparatives are formed using maz/megnox (more/less) adjective jed + a noun in the nominative case.

Most superlatives are formed using the definite article + mez/megnox (most/least) adjective + a noun in the appropriate case.

In all cases, the adjective needs to agree in number, case, and gender with the noun it modifies.

Examples

maz clen jed - hotter than

li/la/le mez clen(e) - the hottest

Vogno (good) and mal (bad) have irregular forms that combine with jed and the definite article to form comparative and superlative forms

mal -> joi

vogno -> mêzo

When used to form a comparative, joi combines with jed to form joid

Examples

mêzo jed - better than

joid - worse than

li/la/le mêzo - the best

li/la/le joi - the worst

li joid aza - the worst that there is

ArticlesEdit

Alegna has separate indefinite and definite articles. They agree in number, gender, and case with the noun they modify. Except for certain cases (such as when one noun serves as the object of a prepsotional phrase that is the complement of a head noun and in gnomic clauses), an article (or some other determiner) is always required. Generally the definite article is used unless the speaker wishes to specify that a noun is indefinite.

Articles (and determiners in general) behave uniquely in that, in the oblique case for the definite article and all cases for the indefinite article, the vowel is always kept, and will replace the initial vowel of the following word (e.g. le istela /lestela/ not /listela/, ugna istela /uɲa‿stela/ not /uɲistela/). In the nominative case, the vowel on the definite article is always elided (e.g. li + amigo -> l'amigo /lamigo/, la + istela -> l'istela /listela/).

Definite Article

The definite article is formed as follows

Singular Plural
Masc Fem Masc Fem
NOM li la los las
OBL le les

Indefinite Article The indefinite article is formed as follows

Singular Plural
Masc Fem Masc Fem
NOM ugn ugna ugnos ugnas
OBL ugni

AdverbsEdit

Jome tu maz rapidamèn! - Eat faster!

Most adjectives can be turned into an adverb by adding -mèn to the feminine nominatige singular form if the adjective ends in -o or -oi, and to the nominative singular form if it ends in any other vowel. -ên is added to the nominative singular form if it ends in a consonant. Occssionally, there is a meaning change in this process.

Examples

rapidoi - rapid --> rapidamèn - rapidly, ècle - equal --> èclemèn - equally, clen - hot --> clenên  - hotly, heatedly

VerbsEdit

Pèr favo, credieme tu - Please, believe me

As with most languages, verbs are the most complicated part of Alegna's morphology. Verbs in Alegna conjugate for person (1st, 2nd, 3rd), number (singular, plural), tense (present, past, imperfect, and future), and mood (indicative, subjunctive, imperative, and conditional). Alegna developed its future and conditional tenses like most other Romance languages did by using a form of HABĒRE + the infinive. It developed its forms for the future subjunctive by combining the infinitive with the present subjunctive of ESSE. The subjunctive and imperative moods have an expanded role compared to other Romance languages. The subjunctive mood can be found in the main independent clause, where it often translates as may/might ___ and the imperative has a few roles outside of pure commands (though these roles are still commands in a certain sense). Periphrastic Forms Alegna uses periphrastic forms to form the perfect and continuous tenses. The perfect tense is formed using aver + the past participle. In this case, the participle agrees in number and gender with the subject. The continuous tense is formed using  estar + the gerund/present participle.

Passive VoiceEdit

There ae two ways to form the passive voice in Alegna. In informal speech and writing, the passive voice is formed using the reflexive pronoun, se when the agent is noun mentioned (e.g. La cradai se me da - The tie is given to me).

In formal contexts or if the agent is mentioned, the passive voice is formed using a form of èzer + the passive particple. The agnet is introduced with pèr.  The passive participle agrees in number and gender with the patient (e.g. La cradai me ês daida pèr jo patre - The tie is given to me by my father).

CommandsEdit

Alegna's verbs show a T-V distinction in forming commands. There are 3 ways to form commands. Informal commands are formed using the tu or vox form of the imperative mood. Formal commands are formed using the il/ila or ils/ilas form of the imperative mood. Polite commands (extremely formal) commands are formed using the conditional of podir jed + the il/ila or ils/ilas form of the imperative mood

Pronoun PlacementEdit

Pronoun placement follows this order for verbs not in the imperative tense

Pronoun Placement - Conjugated Verb
Personal Pronoun Reflexive Pronoun Indiret Object (Dative) Pronoun Direct Object Pronoun (Accusative) Verb

For infintives, all pronouns except for personal pronouns are also attaced to the end of the verb

Pronoun Placement

For affirmative commands, all pronouns except for personal pronouns are also attached to the end of the verb

Pronoun Placement - Affirmative Commands
Verb Reflexive Pronoun Indiret Object (Dative) Pronoun Direct Object Pronoun (Accusative) Personal Pronoun

Note that nox becomes -gnox when attached to the end of an affirmative command

For negative commands, all pronouns go between no and the verb

Pronoun Placement - Negative Commands
no Personal Pronoun Reflexive Pronoun Indiret Object (Dative) Pronoun Direct Object Pronoun (Accusative) Verb

SyntaxEdit

Jed daice-il? - What is he saying

Prepositional PhrasesEdit

In prepositional phrases, the prepsotion is placed before the noun. The noun may take on the nominative or the oblique case depending on the preposition. In addition, some prepositions change meaning depending on the case of its complemenet.

Relative ClausesEdit

Relative clauses are a speical kind of subordinate clause that is always introduced with jed - that or je - who. Although je translates as who, it is only used in adjectival clauses and with a preposition. Jed and je form contractions with certain words, listed in the table below.

Word Contraction
il/ila/ils/ilas

j'il/j'ila/j'ils/j'als

li/la/los/las/le/les j'il/j'al/jos/jas/j'el/jes
ugn/ugna/ugnus/ugnas/ugni j'ugn/j'agn/jugnos/jagnos/j'in
ês/êspo/... j'ès/j'èspo/...
joi joid
êt j'êt
piec piej

Relative clauses often require that the main verb(s) in the clause be in the subjunctive mood (or rarely in the imperative mood). Unlike English, the relative pronoun is never omitted.

Note that if the subject is the same in the relative clause as the main clause, the pronoun can optionally be obmitted.

In informal contexts, jed is often used in contexts that call for je.

Verb UseEdit

Subjunctive vs IndicativeEdit

The indicative mood is used to indicate facts, and certaintaties. The subjunctive mood is used to express emotions, wishes, doubts, hypotheticals, and possibilities. Like other Romance languages, Alegna uses the subjunctive frequently, more frequently than languages like English. However, Alegna uses the subjunctive even more frequently than other romance languages.

Preterit vs ImperfectEdit

Conditional ClausesEdit

Conditional clauses in Alegna are introduced with si. There are many combination of moods and tenses.

1. Indicative Present + Indicative Future - If a happens b will happen

2. Indicative Present + Subjunctive Future - If a happens b might happen

3. Subjunctive Present + Subjunctive Future - If a happens, b (might) happen

4. Subjunctive Future + Indicative Future - If a might happen, b will happen

5. Subjunctive Past + Conditional Present - If a were true, b would be true

6. Subjunctive Pluperfect + Conditional Perfect - If a had been true, b would have been true

7. Indicative Present + Subjunctive Present - If a happens, b happens

si forms contractions with the pronouns il/ila/ils/ilas and ugn/ugna/ugnos/ugnas

si + il -> s'il

si + ila -> s'al

si + ils -> s'ils

si + ilas -> s'als

si + ugn -> sign

si+ ugna -> sagn

si + ugns -> signos

si + ugnas -> sagnas

In all other cases, si overrides the rules of of li sacrefezo, the i sound is always kept.

Examples

Si li chagn jomè, il sovridirè - If the dog eats, it will smile

Si li chagn jomè, il sovridire - If the dog eats, it might smile

Si li chagn joma, il sovridire - If the dog eats (and it might not), it might smile

Si li chagn jomere, il sovridirè - If the dog eats in the future, it will smile

Si li chagn jomezè, il sovridiria - If the dog ate, it would smile.

Si li chagn avuezè jomedoi, il avria sovrididoi - If the dog had eaten, it would have smilled

Si li chagn jomè, il sovrida - If the dog eats, it smiles.

Interrogative ConstructionsEdit

Alegna has two types of interrogative constructions: one introduced by an interrogative pronoun and one that is not (equivalent to English's "do" questions). When there is an interrogative pronoun, there is an inversion of the normal subject-verb order; the subject ocurrs immediately after the verb. Otherwise, there is no inversion In interrogative sentences, the pronoun is not omitted even in casual speech. In interrogative consturctions, a pronoun can separate a main verb and a relative clause.

Examples

Vi tu jomer acra? [vi tu ʒomeʁ akʁa]- Do you want to eat now?

Je amax tu? [ʒema tu]- Who do you love?

Crediè il j'ila se rix? [kʁedil ʒila se ʁi]- Does he think (that) she is rich?

NegationEdit

Negation in Alegna is achieved by simple putting no before the verb. However, to add emphasis, another negation word may be placed immediately after the verb. Alegna also uses a double negative. Jê no lo volo [ʒɛ no volo]- - I don't want it

Jê lo no volo nojên! [ʒɛ no volo noʒɛn]- I really don't want it! (May also be translated as an expletive)

Tu no sabex nojên di lo jed (tu) daicex! [tu no sabe noʒɛn di lo ʒe dajse] - (Forcefully) You don't know what you're talking about!
