This langauge is under active constrution, much of it exist on spreadsheet and is being ported over.
This langauge was created to be auxillary langauge. Easy of learning how to speak and hear this langauge is the primary directive in its creation. Its acultural and thus designed to be culturally neutral, with words generated by random number generator.
Chose of phonemes was decides between 3 diffrent directives:
1. Easy of learning to hear the diffrence between phonemes: Similar phonemes can be difficult to hear the diffrence between for people of native langauges that lack the specific sound. If phonemes used are similiar to ones in the native speaker native language the native speaker could have great difficulty hearing hte diffrence. As such phonemes where choosen that were disimilar from each other.
2. Easy of learning to speak: The most common phonemes were choosen, but in the event of violated the above directive, similar phonemes to the most common where chose that are more disimilar from each other.
3. Minimized phoneme count: Fewer phonemes means less to learn and few confusions between sounds. Only 10 consonants and 5 vowels were choosen.
Diphthongs & TriphthongsEdit
There are 13 diphthongs. No diphthongs consists of two of the same vowels. All possible diphthongs begin or ending with I or U are used except for "ou" If a speaker can't pronounce the diphthongs a haitus is allowed. There are 12 triphthongs. All possible triphthongs that begin and end with U or I.
Allowed diphthongs: ei, ai, oi, ui, ue, ua, uo, iu, ie, ia, io, eu, au,
Allowed Triphthongs: ieu, iau, iou, iei, iai, ioi, uoi, uai, uei, ueu, uau, uou,
These are all ment to be spoken as monosyllables, but if the spearker has not learned how that is not problematic. More common words use monophthongs, and less common words use Diphthongs and Triphthongs.
Syllables consist of monophthongs, diphthongs and triphthongs with either a single consonant onset and coda or just a single consonant coda. In this language consonants are never conjouned as this was considered harder to learn than dipthongs and trithongs. As a result all syllables are these structures (c: consonant, v:vowel, ^:1,2 or 3 vowels): cv^c, v^c.
Single syllables words using v^c syllables are not ture words but must always be conjoined with a word to modify its meaning and syntax. These "semiwords" have the combined functions of common adjectives, inflections, articles, etc. There are 300 possible semiword permutations. Semiwords always follow the word they are modifying. Only one semiword can be used at a time on a word and of course they can't be used on each other. Semiwords are optimally writen with a dash between them and the word they are preceeding, but a space or even no space are acceptable.
All single syllable true words consist of cv^c syllables. There are 3000 possibles permuations of single syllable true words.
Words may be compouned to creat new words. Compounded words consist of at least cv^c-v-cv^c trisyllables. The vowel used to compound the word provides meaning to the compounding:
i: compounding in which the first word is meant to be a converted verb
e: compounding in which the first word is meant to be a converted noun
a: compounding in which the first word is meant to be a converted adjective
o: compounding in which the defintion is not dirieved from the words being fused.
u: Automatic compounding in which the definition is directly derived from the words being fused
It is allowed to compound more than two true words or compound with semiwords attached at the end of the final word in the compounding. There are 45,000,000 possible two true word compoundings and thus a signifigent number of these should be depleted before utilizing more complex compoundings.
The basic grammer structure is Subject Object Verb, which is the most common structure in the world. Other stuctures are allowed by using a post-semiword to announce the nouns true position in a sentance.
-ad: object noun, noun in which the verb is doing an action two
-ug: subject noun, noun in which is doing a verb.
-ud: indirect object noun, noun that is being used by verb.
