Syórrèx / Syóřèx

Introduction Edit

Èëong Dèsèpomé pèdár Ézánènë Syóřèxnë Çèdòzè
Hello, This is an example of Syóřèx Language.

Classification and DialectsEdit

The ancient Syóřèx(Rich Sea) language had been thriving in the Korean Peninsula during the year 2000BC (Before Christ), soon after they started developing the Syó(Sea) script and formalized the writing in the Tibetan steppes but brought it back again into the Korean Peninsula in the year 1800BC, the Exodus of People into Slavic territories in 50BC made some words evolve, it is spoken now by Koreans and the Siberian part of Russia and also in the Caucasus part of Russia.

It now uses the same script since that age and reformed some of the grammar it had, the dialects of this language are mainly separated in the Voiced/Unvoiced field where one dialect wants voiced the others want unvoiced sounds, the reforms are documents signed by the committee of the Syóřèx language, before the reform some sounds were Unvoiced, after the reforms they passed to be Voiced the contrary also happened.

  • Russian Dialects:
    • Romanized Syó before reform;
    • Romanized Syó after reform;
  • Korean Dialects:
    • Syó scripted before reform;
    • Syó scripted after reform;

The dialects differ from Country only in the way they are written, Korean uses the ancient Syó script while Russians use romanized script.

Writing SystemEdit

There are two writing systems in the Syóřèx, the Syó script that is a featural script or the Russian Romanized script.

The letters on the Right of the "/" are an alternative to the official, Ë, G̃, Ñ, Ř, R̊, L̃ , C ,Ç;

W̃ is rarely used in the language, in transcriptions  of the ancient language this graph was replaced by the W graph, since then they are used interchangebly.

Letter Á A Ë/E̋ É E È Ó O Ò S Z M
Sound a ɐ ɛ e ə i ɔ o u s z m
Letter N G̃/NG Ñ/NH Y R Ř/RR R̊/RRR W~W̃ H L L̃/LH X

Adjectives Edit

Adjectives normally come after the noun and if there are no grammatical cases it can join the noun.

  • Syó(sea) řèx(rich adj.)
  • Syóřèx (rich sea) [ sjɔɹiʃ ]
  • Syóhó řèx(rich sea: ACC)[ sjɔhɔ ɹiʃ ]

Countries/LanguagesEdit

Countries are very special class of nouns, in English we normally form the country's name by some manner, in Syóřèx they normally are transliterations of the country, followed by an ending [ó,è,á] if needed, the language is another story.

  • English Example: Russian(adj.) Language(Noun);
  • Syóřèx Example: Ròssèánë(Noun + GEN) Çèdòzè(Noun);

Language names era not treated like an adjective like in English, they are treated like a possessor while Language is the possession.

InterjectionsEdit

Interjections are normally ancient words that evolved into the Korean or Russian(brought by the Exodus of People into Slavic territories in the 50BC) language after years of changes, they can be lower or upper cased.

Example:

  • Good Afternoon:
    • Syóřèx: yóhónò
    • Changes: yóhëónò -> yóhëòónò -> yóhëònóhò -> jóhëòn óhò
    • Korean: 좋은 오후(joh-eun ohu)
  • Yes(interjection and adverb of affirmation):
    • Syóřèx: dár
    • Changes: dár -> dá
    • Russian: да /da/

Question WordsEdit

Like in English there are some words that form questions, these are known as the 6K's, some of them evolved into Modern Russian, there is also a marker like in Mandarin for yes/no questions.

Question Word English Equivelent Russian Evolution
Këto Who Кто
Kák How Как
Kótka When Когда
Kèda Where куда
Kodë Why ------
Kákè What Какие
náòg Yes/No question marker ----

VerbsEdit

Verbs conjugate in three tenses, Past, Future and Present, when romanized they are all lower cased even if beginning a sentence.

Verbs only end in "d" and they are always regular.

SyntaxEdit

The basic syntax of the Syóřèx is:

  • (Subject) Verb (D.Object) (I.Object)
  • (Subject) Negative Verb (D.Object) (I.Object)
  • Question word (Subject) Verb (D.Object) (I.Object)
  • Question word (Subject) Negative Verb (D.Object) (I.Object)

There are no punctuation in the Syóřèx language, the type of sentence is given by the context.
