The Chungganese Language (Ica, derived from idiomachungga, meaning "Chungga's language") is a language that is currently being spoken in the Chungganation since the middle 16th century. The language was first used as a combination of Spanish and English by the empire's people, with the proto-modern language being spoken as a pidgin between the traders of the Chungga Empire and the Philippines.

OrthographyEdit

The Chungganese alphabet has 24 letters; all of the letters of the English alphabet, minus the letters h, k, q, and v. The letters added are ch and ng. All letters are pronounced phonetically, with having very few exceptions.

The language can be currently written in three writing systems:

  • Mago. The Antocu word for "major". This is the most commonly-used script as it is written in the Latin script.
  • Chunggul. A portmanteau of Chungganese and Hangul, the writing system of the Korean language.
  • Chunggayin. A portmanteau of Chungganese and Baybayin, the ancient writing system of the Filipino language.

GrammarEdit

Verb ConjugationEdit

There are seven basic conjugations in Chungganese, with each determining the person and number.

Singular Plural
1st -i -es
2nd -u -as
3rd

-e (masc)
-a (fem)

-o

Example:

  • The chef makes our food for tonight. -> Elutante ge nuezcomes dela noche.
  • We play Hide And Seek in the backyard. -> Juges Taguibusca en la liciarda.

There are past, future and progressive stems as well.

  • Past (and also perfect) -> -kd
  • Future -> -kr
  • Progressive -> -kn

If a need for combinations arises (e.g. past progressive tense), the order of the stems will be
(future)-(progressive)-(past)-(simple) The letter k is replaced by the last vowel of the root. A tricky rule is that vowels are divided into two groups: progressive (a, e, o) and past group (a, i, u).
In action, for a verb with the root comer-, the progressive stem will be -en, while the past stem will be -id.
Example:

  • They went to the laboratory to research on their latest project. -> Fu alabratorio de rebuscarén su mozlatprolegto.
  • We were working while you weren't here. -> Trabanades cuaño fu aci.

Indirect ObjectsEdit

One of the most fascinating things about the language is its system of indirect objects. Instead of adding a word or a totally different suffix, the conjugation that corresponds to the indrect object is used.
In action, the root amar- means "love". Add an -i to make it "I love". Add a -u as an indirect object, and it becomes amiu or "I love you".
Also, the indirect object suffix for "it" is -le. Example:

  • I like her because she is pretty. -> Gustia ce sa ganda.
  • They came to me to ask how I am doing. -> Foi de tanure como me.

ReflexivesEdit

A reflexive or an intensive pronoun is treated as a different word and is placed before the verb. Here are the reflexive pronouns in Chungganese:

Singular Plural
1st jul nos
2nd tu as
3rd

-il (masc)
ela (fem)

yo

Example:

  • I did this artwork myself. -> Jul gidi este arte.
  • He cooked himself spaghetti for dinner. -> Ilutade pasta parápuna.
