Only when a vowel is stressed will it become a long vowel.
The only rule for the phonotactics of Kalégian is that every consonant must have a vowel following it; there are no exceptions. So, CV is the only real rule, since there are no consonant clusters. The English name of Kólada (Kalégian) cannot be counted in this
Because the writing system for this language cannot be typed on a human computer (or simply, there is no unicode hex input for any letter in this language), I will transcribe it using the latin alphabet. The original writing system shall be posted soon.
|Sound||ɨ||k (kʰ)||l||m||n||o||p (pʰ)|
When over vowels, the acute accent (´) denotes stress on the syllable that that vowel is in. For instance, the name of the language, Kólada, is pronounced ['kʰoː.lă.dă], with stress on the vowel [o] in the first syllable. However, when the vowel ɨ shows up in a word, the syllable it is in shall be stressed.
Nouns only decline to number, so they can be singular (1), paucal (2-12), or plural (≥13).
All pronoun prefixes end in -e.
There are only 9 pronoun prefixes, and none of them decline according to case (unlike English), only number.Edit
There is no form of the verb to be. Instead, the subject of the sentence is almost implied to have its own form of the copula just built in. So, if I were to say, in Kalégian, be [beː], then I would be implying that "I am." If another noun followed the word be, such as kómana, the word for man (as in a human being), and formed a sentence be kómana, that would literally mean, "I am a human."
Because this language was constructed by someone of the kóliga turaléfe race, it is completely regular. So, to conjugate a verb according to person, add the specific pronoun prefix (of the pronoun prefixes shown above) whether or not there is already a noun posing as the subject.
The word order is Subject-Verb-Object (SVO).
