Overview in this page you will find some explainations about the origin of a part of the katian vocabluary
Derivated from the combination of wordsEdit
some of the katian words are made of other two words. for example: the katian word for dictionary is "kotofąhon" but its etimological origin is the combination of "kotofą" (word) and "hon" (book).
- another example: the katian word for whiteboard is "baśanabla" but its etimological origin is the combination of the words "baśa" (white) and "nabla" (board).
- another example: the katian word for watercolours is "nełipenti" but its etimological origin is the combination of the words "nełi" (water) and "penti" (paint).
places derivated from verbsEdit
to understand this method of derivation, we have to know some basic words which combined with verbs can make place words:
- ima: room
- ide: house
- garden: park
With these words we can make two or three new words using a verb. for example: we will take the verb "midami" (to watch, look, see) and if we take out the "mi" at the end of the verb and replace it with one of the previously mentioned words. we will get three new words:
- midaima: a cinema
- midaide: a museum
- midagarden: a landscape
as another example, we will take the verb "dabemi" (to eat). using the previously mentioned derivation method, we get three new words:
- dabeima: dining room
- dabeide: restaurant
- dabegarden: outdoors food
as another example, we will take the verb "kaumi" (to buy). using the previously mentioned derivation method, we get three new words:
- kauima: an aisle of a shop
- kauide: a shop
- kaugarden: outdoors shop
place words derivated from adjectivesEdit
to understand this method of derivation, we have to know some basic words which combined with adjectives can make place words:
- ima: room
- ide: house
- garden: park
- zoni: zone
With these words we can make two, three or four new words using an adjective. for example: we will take the adjective "ihąźi" (funny) and if we take out the "źi" at the end of the verb and replace it with one of the previously mentioned words. we will get four new words:
- ihąima: arcade
- ihąide: amusement park
- ihągarden: a fun park
- ihązoni: play courts (teniz ihązoni: tennis field)
as another example, we will take the adjective "ramaźi" (big). using the previously mentioned derivation method, we get four new words:
- ramaima: a big room
- ramaide: a skyscraper
- ramagarden: a plain
- ramazoni: a building lot
as another example, we will take the adjective "lamaźi" (little). using the previously mentioned derivation method, we get four new words:
- lamaima: an apartament
- lamaide: a hut
- lamagarden: the garden of a house
- lamazoni: a neighbourhood
personal words derived from verbsEdit
to understand this method of derivation, we have to know a basic word which combined with verbs can make personal words:
- paśu: person (for making new woerds, we just use the sylable "pa" but we need to know why)
The job of this word is commonly to form the job, the role, and other kinds of people.
- WARNING: these words can also be describing animals, plants, minerals or machines. but they all use this method to describe its role.
- WARNING 2: when the described is not a person, its is used as an adjective noun before the described object. when it is a person, zou just use the personal word.
- here we have a few examples to get different things. a job, a role, and another one. they all come from verbs and are pretty easy to learn:
- EXAMPLE 1: banhemi = to rule
- banhepa: ruler
- EXAMPLE 2: yogami = to play
- yogapa: player
- EXAMPLE 3: babemi = to drink
- babepa: drinker
personal words derived from nounsEdit
- This method is similar to the previous one but the only difference is that they come from other noun words like tralo (lectucce) or magompy (carrot). to get a lot of new words for people.
- This method is also used to get the nationalities from the countries. By the way, the countries in katian were derived from the way they are said in their language. un less they can be translated here we have 10 countries:
- katia: katia
- nipon: japan
- źonguo: china
- ingland: england
- źoipamu amerikapa stetz: United states of america (this could be translated)
- polska: poland
- espała: spain
- rośiska: russia
- dotćilan: germany
- norge: norway
from these ten countries we can do the nationalities for those counties but I will just use three of them in two examples:
- Taro Takimura mamumi niponpa manapa
- (Taro Takimura is a japanese teacher)
- kuni momenty ni norgepaśi mu rośiaskapaśi tatami famiźi dayźi ekonomz.
- at this moment, norwegians and russians fight future bad economies.
- Nakźi lan: nice day, hello, good morning
- Nakźi fen: good afternoon
- Nakźi myn: good nights
- Łami Łu tori: thank you
- Sagufą: good bye
- Kętma gokian: you're welcome

- źou mamumi komt?: how are you?
- Mą mamumi hayźi: I am fine

how to answer a questionEdit
Źou kaepamu śokia kana?Edit
- you come from a country= Mą kaepamu --- kokun kana
- Mą kaepamu nipon kokun kana
- I came from japan
- Mą kaepamu polska kokun kana
- I came from poland
- you come from a city= Mą kaepamu --- źiśi kana
- Mą kaepamu london źiśi kana
- I came from london city
- Mą kaepamu uaśington źiśi kana

Toki mamumi kzot?Edit
toki mamumi +++ hora mu --- minuty (+++ hour, --- minutes). But wait! in Katian formal speaking, you never say things like 5:00 PM or 3:00 AM. you always use the militar hour. instead of 5:00 PM, you say 17:00
- toki mamumi pyźenśy hora mu reźendu minutz (14:25)or 2:25 PM
- toki mamumi re hora mu ban minutz (2:03) or 2:03 AM
in a katian informal speaking, you can say 5:00 PM or 3:00 AM. Fot saying AM, you use "lan" and for saying PM, you use "fen" but after 6:00, you use "myn".
- toki mamumi lan du hora mu reźen minutz (2:20 AM)
- toki mamumi fen ban hora (3:00 PM)
- toki mamumi myn hać hora mu pyźendu minutz (8:15 PM)
There are two rules you should remember when telling the time:
- when the hour is o'clock, you skip the part of saying the minutes
- when you say more than one minute, the word "minuty" has to be in plural (minutz)
Tela lan mamumi kzot?Edit

how to insult?Edit
this is something that katian language is not meant to do, but the objective of creating a language is to be able to express anything, if I would make a book in katian but the language is not expressive enought, it would be a total failure. that is why I do the katian insults:
- this is a shit! : kuni mamumi kśo !
- what is this shit ? : kuni kśo mamumi kian?
- oh, shit! : oo, kśo!
Labroła: whore, bitch
- she is a bitch : śei mamumi labroła

- I fucked you. What are you going to do? : mą tęnapamu źou. źou śifami kian?
