About LiamanEdit

Liaman is a Germanic conlang, strongly based on the Dutch language, with a lot of English in it too. It also has German influences too, as well as influences from the Scandinavian languages, and also a bit of Spanish.

SettingEdit

You'll probably look at this language and think "Hey, this looks like Dutch!" And I don't blame you, it's about 60% based on Dutch, and 40% based on English.

PhonologyEdit

PhonotacticsEdit

Basic GrammarEdit

Like Spanish, the noun generally comes before the verb. For example, the sentence "Der sponse yelle ist ijn der bad", is literally "the sponge yellow is in the bath."

To the speaker of either English or Dutch, the language should not be hard to learn. The grammar is not too different to English, while many words are very similar to Dutch words. Either way, there are still a lot of words that are mutally intelligible to English words.


"Wat bijn je ist doen?" - "What are you doing?"

IstEdit

You should notice that the word "ist" would normally mean either it or is. (When saying "it is", you would say "ja ist" instead.) So you're now probably wondering what the heck it's doing in that sentence. To be honest, it doesn't mean anything in that sentence. But it's important in Liaman grammar. It is always used in front of a verb in the future tense and the present tense, but never in the past tense. Also, if the verb is directly after "Ikh" ("I" in English), then "ist" is not needed, but it must be used directly after you, he, she, we, they. (Ikh essen - I eat. Je ist essen - you eat. Heij ist essen - he eats. Zeij ist essen - she eats.)

Words with more than one meaningEdit

VoorEdit

This can be a complicated word. It is pronounced "for", and often has the same meaning as that word. It can also mean "to" and "too". Such as "me too" would be "meij voor". "To eat" would be "Voor essen." If you were to say "I want to go to the beach too," it would go like this - "Ikh wante voor ist goen voor der strap voor."
