Classification and DialectsEdit

While the main and "official" dialect of Aretonese originated in the first (and still standing) Areton country, the Unified Areton Federation, Aretons traveled around Aria, either joining existing countries or making their own. Slowly, over time, multiple dialects of Aretonese sprouted planet-wide. As for how many? Who knows!

PhonotacticsEdit

This language uses an V(C) syllable structure and there is no clustering at all. As well, words must follow a syllabic "pattern", constantly switching between voiced and unvoiced consonants.

Writing SystemEdit

The writing system of Aretonese was recently finished. Here is a chart detailing all the symbols. If it looks like crap, it's because I hand drew it, took a picture of it in Windows Camera, then tried to snip out the symbol chart with the steadiest hand I could. As you can see, I don't have very steady hands. But you get the gist, right?

Aretonese syllabary

It's over there, if you didn't realize it already. ----------------------------------------->

Only the vowels may occupy a syllable alone, so the top row (under the IPA symbols for the consonants) is only used to show the base consonant shape used to create the syllabic symbols. The vowel symbols (on the far left column beside the IPA symbols for the vowels) can be used solo. The rest of the grid shows the different syllables.

NOTE: Some Aretonese girls may draw syllables with the [m] sound as a pair of butterfly wings (there are butterfly-like animals on Aria).

For specifics, here is a table of all syllables in Aretonese.

GrammarEdit

For more in-depth information, see the full article: Aretonese/Grammar

The Grammar of Aretonese is, in lack of better terminology, "in-between" complex and simple. The basic things to know are as follows:

  • Words in sentences are put in OSV, or "Object-Subject-Verb" order.
  • The verb changes based on the number of the object. Since nouns do not decline based on number, this is a useful way to see if one is talking about one or many things.
  • The subject and verb are separated by the vowel i.

LexiconEdit

For more in-depth information, see the full article: Aretonese/Lexicon

The Aretonese Lexicon is organized by the vowel sound of the first syllable in the word.

Since we cannot write the Lexicon in the Aretonese script, the words will be romanized (changed to Latin script) in the Lexicon.
