General informationEdit

Hexic is the constructed Celtic language spoken by the people of Hexia, a nation in the northernmost extremity of North America.  It was constructed by six teenage conlangers hailing from Tampa, Florida, USA in hopes of creating a secret language spoken by kids that no adult could understand.  The language spread like wildfire from teen to teen, and by 2050, the original Hexic teenagers, now adults themselves, had arranged with Canada to set aside the northern third of its land for the Hexic people to make the frigid North habitable.

Hexic has two grammatical genders, masculine and feminine.  The language's alphabet has 31 letters, six (or sometimes seven) being vowels.  The alphabet borrows three letters ("dd", "ll", and "ff") from the Welsh alphabet, one letter ("ø") from the Danish alphabet, and the other 26 letters of the English alphabet.

About 45% of Hexia's 56 million residents live in or near Spookinawa, the nation's capital. About 40 percent live in Dixnagis, another major city in the province of Badagascar. 10 percent live in Viwewver, a rather steampunkish city.

The Hexic people can be considered their own ethnic category, much like Hispanic/Latino in the USA.  Males are normally tall, well-built, and usually have deep, booming voices. Dark hair and eyes are prevalent in most of the population. Females have rather prominent secondary sex characteristics and have high-pitched, quiet voices.  Due to the fact that there are more teens than adults living in Hexia, the Hexic people have been the subject of much stereotyping, ageism, and racism, particularly in the form of ethnic slurs like Eskimo pencil, gudgeon pin, counter-sixer, long-skull, human cobra, and many others.  The Hexic people tend to be highly offended by these slurs, much like the N-word.

HexiaMap

The Hexic language's goal is to be a universal language (a language that most/all people can understand), so it is not really a Celtic language, nor is it Germanic, or even Italic. It can be considered a member of all three language families.

NounsEdit

Nouns can be either masculine or feminine. The suffix for masculine nouns is "-dydd", and "-llyth" for feminine nouns.

VerbsEdit

Verbs have form as they do in Germanic languages like English, German, or Dutch, but with the pronoun after the verb instead of before.  There are no suffixes for verbs, so conjugating is easy.

SyntaxEdit

All Celtic languages have a verb-subject-object word order. Hexic is no exception, for example:

Nordyff Vallyth yn Rønokasa

In English, this means literally:

North went Valerie to Thonotosassa
