Thadra (/θɛdɻʷɐː/) is the official trade language of the Thardrandian planet, created by the Zan Empire as a means to communicate amongst various species. It is now the only remaining piece of the age, having long since surpassed others as the dominant language. Being that the language as a whole borrowed from the various tongues, a universal structure within is largely absent and sometimes prone to simplification.



Classification and DialectsEdit

Given that the language spans two continents and one moon, regional dialects are abound. On top of that, each region also has variations depending on species, such as the sssstamne, who hiss everything.

Writing SystemEdit

Thadra is, like its predecessors, written in a mixture of runes and glyphs. Runes are used in general writing and make up the standard alphabet, whereas glyphs are used to represent various concepts.

NumbersEdit

Numerals typically precede the noun. The basic numbers are:

  • zero - kapa
  • one - the
  • two - fol
  • three - tront
  • four - nift
  • five - fra
  • six - struv
  • seven - warj
  • eight - siekh
  • nine - ponte
  • ten - kepa

Numbers beyond ten follow the basic pattern of adding kepa. For example, twenty-two is fol kepa, which means two tens, or rather twenty, and then fol... So, fol kepa fol (two tens [and] two).

  • twenty - fol kepa
  • thirty - tront kepa
  • forty - nift kepa
  • fifty - fra kepa
  • sixty - struv kepa
  • seventy - warj kepa
  • eighty - siekh kepa
  • ninety - ponte kepa

This is pattern is also applied to larger numerals...

  • hundred - korlath
  • thousand - miyarn
  • million - keloof
  • billion - betraan
  • trillion - jiraan

So, for an example of a long number... 2,589,173 you would have fol keloof, fra korlath siekh kepa ponte miyarn, the korlath warj kepa tront.

The exception is the number 999,999,999,999,999 which is its own word of triftin.
