Dang Misis is a language that blogger and writer SpiderCoyotl developed to write nonsensical lyrics in. The name translated literally means "Tongue Lyric-of", but is understood within-language as "Lyrical Language".
The sounds of Dung Misis are as follows:
There is a popular style of speech called "Tak Fransei-fou" where every cosonant except c, f, k, l, or r are dropped in pronunciation at the end of words and final m/n nasalize the vowel [note: ~ represents nasalization] (Gung becomes gyu~, Dang becomes duh~, Misis becomes mih=sih, Lam becomes luh~ etc.)
Word order resembles English in most cases. Sometimes people like placing adjectives after nouns, and words like in, on, by etc.are represented by prefixes/suffixes.
Though there is no gender in Dang Misis, if the speaker wishes they can apply the rules of Spanish gender (thus the word Zihb "bee" can have the gender of Zihba/Zihbo.)
Femininity can also be implied by adding t- to the beginning of words.
Plural is indicated by either doubling the word or adding -es/-is/-as. -es/-is can be used freely, but words eding in -n have to use the -as pluralizer.
Negative is implied with ne ~ pee, where ~ represents the word. Sih tak (he talks) compare to Sih ne tak pee (he does not talk). If the word begins with a vowel or w/y/h, ne becomes n- and h loses it's value. Er wang (She bounces)/Er nwang pee, Sih aund (he hunts)/Sih naund pee, Er haem (she hungers)/Er nhaem pee etc.
Past tense is indicated by de, i.e. Sih aund de (He hunted). Future tense is indicated by ken, i.e. Sih ken aund (He will hunt). Alternatively, one could use the prefixes pris- for the future tense and pos- for past tense. Sih prisaund/Sih Posaund.
Questions can be formed by adding ka at the end of sentences. Er pritak ka? (Will she speak?)
