NāmaςEdit

This page uses IPA phonetic notation as standard.

This page uses non - standard ASCII signs.

This appendix provides a quick and useful vocabulary of the language Nāmaς, with common phrases and greetings for everyday "use".

I will feature Christian holidays, as well as birthdays and name-days, since I have no real experience of any other festivities. For the majority of the world, Midsummer isn't really celebrated, but it's fairly important to me. Hence I'll feature it. And that's that.

For enquiries the masculine gender is used.
