BackgroundEdit

Peshalic is the common language of the Pesha people, and the official language of the Metari Theocracy, centered on the Holy Metari City of Peshalim. It was first used as a spoken language around 2400 BC amongst pockets of nomadic Pesha livestock herders in South Cadia, but its use after becoming the official language of the Metari Theocracy has greatly increased.

Long FormsEdit

Long forms of consonants are held before being released. Long forms of vowels and diphthongs are held twice as long. Long forms are written as a letter repeated except for diphthongs, i, and u. Phonemes repeated that have multiple letters only repeat the first letter.

U and diphthongs ending in u are lengthened with w.

I and diphthongs ending in i are lengthened with y.

Stress and TimingEdit

Stress is always on the penultimate syllable, except in certain words, marked with an accent mark. Stress is basically a higher pitch.

GrammarEdit

Peshalic is an analytic language in the OSV word order, with six "genders." The structure of a noun phrase is:

number+article+adjective+noun+genetive+category
li sam parso hjoyóeng i-buean paraong.
two the large room of-me bath
the two large bathrooms of mine

The sentence is in this form:

object + adverb + verb + postpositional phrase + subject
Hiros so-mana rang ingor pas o.
Pear quickly eat house in I.
I quickly ate a pear in a house.

GendersEdit

The language has six genders:

  1. Long objects
  2. Actions
  3. People
  4. Flat Objects
  5. Ideas and Flat Objects
  6. Places and buildings

Adpositions and articles change depending on the gender, but that is the only case.
