Classification and DialectsEdit

Stegalic is...well...I'm not really sure what to call it.

It's really just an obscured form of English intended to require more effort to read.  Think "Finnigan's Wake".

It's going to be very easy for English speakers to learn, but intended to be very hard for people not familiar with Stegalic to understand when spoken.

The language contains many words that represent what would be entire idiomatic expressions in English.  For instance, the word casinx means "case in point".

It's really not intended to be a realistic language.

I'm hoping to have some fun with this, so if you have any ideas for this page feel free to add them.

« C » is realized as [s] before « -e » and « -i », and [ts] everywhere else.

« Y » is realized as [j] at the beginning of a word (except when standing alone) and [ai] everywhere else.

[ai] is represented by « ai- » at the beginning of a word.

« ÿ » is always realized as [j].

GrammarEdit

NounsEdit

Nouns generally pluralize by adding -s if the noun ends in a consonant and -ç if it ends in a vowel.  A null number can be indicated by dropping the -ç or -s from the plural form and adding -cero.

PronounsEdit

Personal pronouns only exist in the oblique and genitive (posessive) cases.  

Personal Pronouns Oblique Genitive
First Singular Ey Er
First Dual Inclusive Yaus Ar
First Plural Wi Auer
Second Yu Yor
Third Thei Ther

VerbsEdit

General InfoEdit

Verbs conjugate as if they were in the third person singular.  The English verb "to be" does not exist; the Stegalic verb aint, meaning "to not be" is simply inverted to achieve the same effect.  However, many times this can be dropped.

Inversion and NegationEdit

Stegalic posesses two types of negation.

  • Simple Negation:  I don't like her
  • Inversion:  I dislike her

Simple negation is achieved by prefacing the verb with no, and inversion is achieved by prefacing the verb with dis.

Idiomatic LexiconEdit

  • Casinx:  "Case in point"
  • Firox:  "The first rule of holes - when you get in one, stop digging"
