Seletinan is a Latin-derived language spoken throughout Europe. The languages' grammar has changed slightly from that of other romance languages, likely due to influence from various other languages. At one point in time, Seletinan used a logograph system, which was used in writing alongside the Roman alphabet, but was later simplified into the modern Seletinan alphabet, which became the dominant system of writing.

PhonotacticsEdit

A cluster of up to any two vowels is possible, permisible constonant clusters include "st", "sj", "rm", "rn", "tk", and "ll". Other constonant clusters beside these exist, but are prononced seperately rather than creating a merged sound as the aforementioned clusters do. "th" is represented as its own letter in non-romanized Seletinan script.


Basic GrammarEdit

Verbs: Conjugation: When conjugating, except in the case of -il, for verbs in which the infinitive ends in a constonant, the constonant is dropped. verbs ending in vowels are unaffected. for -il, when a verb ends in a vowel, add an "R" before -il.

-infinitive and present tense are the same dorma- to sleep (ne) dorma- (you) sleep kaminar- to walk (ne) kaminar- (you) walk

-tka (past tense) dormatka- slept kaminatka- walked

-kara (future tense) dormakara- will sleep kaminakara- will walk

la da --- - (present ongoing) la da dorma- is sleeping la da kaminar- is walking

tka da ---- (past perfect) tka da dorma- had been sleeping tka da kaminar- had been walking

kara da ---- (future perfect) kara da dorma- will have been sleeping kara da kaminar- will have been walking

-il (Imperative, command) dormaril- sleep kaminaril- walk

-bo (not a conjigation, but modifies a verb into an adjective) dormabo- sleeping/tired kaminabo- walking/ wanting to walk

negation: to negate a verb, the word "hei" is added before the conjugated verb.


nouns: singular: a singular noun can have any ending, however, emphasis can be placed on the singular nature of a noun by placing "n" or "en" at the end of a noun. This can be used as substitute for the definate article, IE "The x", or to substitute the phrase "exactly one".

plural: nouns are made plural by the addition of "m" or "em" at the end of the word.
