SettingEdit

Tell some background information, history, where the language is spoken, etc.

PhonologyEdit

Write about the alphabet (consonants and vowels) and explain the orthography along with the phonotactics of the language, it is suggested to do this before anything. Use the International Phonetic Alphabet to name sounds in your language.


Vowels

Vowels sometimes have more than one value and are interchangeable in a given word.

oo : /uː/

The Orthography

/iː/ : ee, ea, e...e, i...e, ie...e, i, y, ä, äy, eey, öi, eeo,

/ɪ/ :

/uː/ :

/ʊ/ :

PhonotacticsEdit

Explain the consonant clusters and vowel clusters that work and are acceptable for use in the language. For example, "st" is a consonant cluster in English.

Word StressEdit

Words including long vowels and diphthongs or ending with more than 1 consonant are stronger, heavier and stressed. In native words the first syllable of the root is stressed.

Basic GrammarEdit

Nouns are inflected according to case and number. The cases are Nominative, Genitive, and Accusative. Nouns governed by prepositions are inflected in accusative.

Regular nouns inflect as follows:

Sing:

Nominative : 0 / V

Genitive : -es / `es

Accusative : -un / `un

Plur:

Nominative : -s

Genitive : -'ses

Accusative : -uns


"-en and -ren plurals" nouns are inflected

Nominative : 0

Genitive : -'es

Accusative : -un

Plur:

Nominative : -(r)en

Genitive : -'(r)enes

Accusative : -(r)enun

E.g. : chiild chiildes chiildun - children chiildrenes chiildrenun


Nouns with identical singular and plural are inflected as if singular.

DictionaryEdit

Give a list or a link to a page with a list with words and their definitions (or words translated from English). It is suggested that phonology, constrains, phonotactics and grammar is more or less finished before going onto this or you may risk making the words too similar to your native language.
