Aurorese Arabic is an Arabic variety spoken on the Aura Y planet by 25400 people and is understood by most of the population living on the 18 districts of the Aurora City. It developed when the Arabs arrived into the Aura Y Planet. 60% of the vocabulary comes from Arabic varieties and the remaining from other languages, such as Yermosis, Buwari, French, Italian and Persian. One of the innovative features of Aurorese Arabic is that the emphatic consonants developed into aspirated ones and ɣ developed into g in most words. It's written with the Arabic alphabet plus 3 letters that aren't part of the alphabet: , but are present only in loanwords from Earth languages.

Phonology Edit

Aurorese Arabic has an inventory with phonenes(30 consonants and 9 vowels).

MorphologyEdit

THE ROOT SYSTEMEdit

In Aurorese Arabic, almost all the words are formed from a triliteral or quadriliteral root(though biliteral roots also exist, they are a bit uncommon). For example, the root k-t-b carries a meaning of writting and all words related to writting have these consonant patterns. The words bellow are formed from the triliteral root k-t-b:

  • muktub(office)

  • yukatub(he writes)

  • katab(he wrote)

  • istukatab(written)

  • ketabu(book)

  • katubut(writter)

And thousands of words can be created from this triliteral root by adding additional consonants or by changing the vowels inside the word. New words on the language are created this way.


See bellow more examples with the roots s-f-r(travel) and q-l-b(heart)

  • yusafur(he travels)

  • safar(he traveled)

  • istusafar(travelling)

  • sefurut(traveller)

  • qelib(heart)

  • muqaleb(heart pulsation)

  • qelubu(blood)

Edit

GENDER: MASCULINE AND FEMININEEdit

The words can be either masculinine or feminine. All feminine words end in -at, though some exceptions like Alum(mother) and Albin(daughter) exist. The words which don’t end in -at are masculine.

THE DEFINITE ARTICLE

There are only two definite articles in Aurorese Arabic: Al and El derived from the Arabic definite article “Al-”. The articles have vowel harmony, so either Al or El will be used depending on the on the vowel that comes after it.

  • Al: The article Al is used when the first vowel of a word is a, ö or i

  • El: The article El is used when the first vowel of a word is e, o, ü or ı.
