Nusblatish is a language created by Julgat. It is a language for his conworld called the Chungganation. A number of people will use the language for distinguishable purposes, and Julgat has said that the language will also be used for his personal use. The language is somewhat hard to understand due to the random combination of words (and some loanwords) in the language, and the plentiful suffixes one has to memorize.
The Nusblatish alphabet is virtually the case compared to English, although accents like á, é, í, ó, ú, and ñ are visible in the language, due to specific grammar rules in the language. However, the letters h and k are not permitted in the language (Exceptions are diphthongs with the letter h, excluding sh)
Important Grammar RulesEdit
- All root words have chunks of C-V, or V-C. (Example: house in Nusblatish is gapebo)
- To pluralize nouns, add -sa at the end of the word.
- Repetition of syllables and/or letters are not allowed.
- To fix a repetition of syllable, drop the duplicate.
- To fix a repetition of letters
(If consonant) Drop out the duplicate.
(If vowel or n) Combine by using accents. (Example: a + a = á)
(If s) Combine the two s into th.
- No h and k are permitted in the language. As a replacement, use j and c.
|I, me, my, myself, mine||co|
|You, yours, your, yourself, yourselves||tu (plural te)|
|he, his, him, himself||el|
|she, her, hers, herself||la|
|we, our, ourselves, ours||nu|
|they, their, themselves, theirs||yo|
