Sleevanian is the language of Sleevania, a small country off the coast of France. Sleevania's main industry is tourism.
Sleevanian letters are almost identical to their roman counterparts. However, there are a few differences:
- There is no emphasis in Sleevanian. There is no correct way of saying words, emphasis does not matter.
- All vowels go by their short sounds, except for "u", which is always pronounced as a long vowel. This is because it's short vowel sound is too similar to that of "a".
Sleevanian sentences are put together in Adverb-Noun(doing the action)Action-Adjective-Noun-Typeword format. The adjectives and adverbs are the same words. It is determined that one is an adjective or adverb based on the order.
For this reason, "I said it informally" would be in the order "Informally said it I". If you said it in the order "Said informally it I", then you would be informal, not the way you said it.
To tell someone to do something, simply say the verb, and have the typeword signify them and future tense. Also, if you want to say something with two subjects, like, "I get on the boat with my daughter", you use two typewords. This sentence would be in the format Adverb-Action-Noun(person doing the action) Adjective-Noun(person or thing getting the action done to)-Typeword-Noun(person or thing getting the action done to)-Typeword. It would be written, "Chani es ellerer usa se terek usu."
The typeword is a crucial part of the sentence. It gives who or what is doing the action, as well as tense and how the action was being applied to the noun. For example, if you said "Laughing funny idiot", the listener would not know if you were laughing at the funny idiot or laughing with the funny idiot.
