Classification and DialectsEdit

The Imperial mirkuleon is the language of the imperial court of the mirkuleon empire. It is primarly spoken by the highest nobles such as the imperial famiy. It was first developed after the eternal wars between the mirkuleon tribal confedracy and the udroin kingdoms. The language came from the dialect of ancient mirkuleon spoken in elderhold, this dialect evantually split off due to it being presevred by the imperial court and became a seperate language. The language is then split into three columns, the top one is the language of the Imperial court, the middle is the language of the military and the last is the language of education and the courts. The other forms of the mirkuleon language are common mirkuleon spoken by the commoners, eastern trade which is a creole language spoken by mirkuleon sailors in the eastern ocean.  The Imperial mirkuleon dialect is mainly extinct save for being used among noble men it is also a highly influencing language with many words being borrowed by neighbouring tongues to the south suchas the noluk language, Freemanic, Silsian and toch all borrowing words for war and technology and science from it. In turn words for science came from the old dwarven languages and the words for the arcane from elvish languages.

GrammarEdit

NounsEdit

Noun morphology is mainly ased on rank and the relationship between the speakers, there are around six ranks, (supreme, far superior, superiror, equal, inferior and bottom runner.) Affixes tend to be longer and more complex for superior people and simplifiyed for those who are considered inferior. The genitive case has been lost for the bottom rank suggesting that the mirkuleons believe people like that are unable to own things. It is considered very rude to  not use the correct rank or honourifics to those higher up. In transitive sentances rank is very important, the two arguments will be given ranks based on their social difference for example the slave served the king, the servant would be inferior whilst king would be superior. Whenever a sentence involves a mirkuleon and a non mirkuleon the mirkuleon gets the superior marking and the human gets the infeiror

The cases must agree to the rank of the indivisual.

prefixes superior equal bottom

There are three numbers singular, dual and plural, they are shown through, Ad, Og, uq. They do not have to agre to the gender of the word. The sex gender of the word shown through the case of the word. They way to show genders is through infixes inserted within the noun for example mirkuleon man is xsfamaq whilst woman is xnqamaq. These morphemes cannot be used individual thus there is no indepedent usage for these morphemes nor is there any for any other morphemes, For example the word to say man or woman is to use the word log which can mean anything. It is often used when speaking to forgieners as to disguise words or to not be truthful. The word for man is thus Lsfog and woman is lnqog.
