scai language

Postby vincan » Sun 08 May 2011 8:04 am

I decided to make my 4th colang and I came up with scai.

Syae (Alphabet) : a,e,i,k,m,o,s,a,y,r
as you can see, It hardly has any consonants therefore it is hard to pronunce. it is a simple colang


verbs: ALL verbs are made out of 2 vowels and one consonant

Iso to be uma to have
Iao I am aua I have
iyo You are uya you have
iii it is uuu it has
iuo he is uau he has
ioi (name) is uoa (name) is
ioi we are uia we are
oio you are (plural) uea you are (plural)

oir say all names then attach oir at the end of persons name


The lords prayer in scai
ioi mua,
iu ea kai aksa,
kk,
oyos eaak,
kk cauaik,
ek ee iuy aee,
iee muai,
sekei ioi kaus,
esuosskei kuai i
aiu, yia
ieea
verbs are not yet completed please post more verbs in thankyou!

How should one pronounce "kk" or "uuu" or "iii"?
Ponavadi ni v moji navadi, da govorim nenavadno o nenavadno nenavadnih navadah. :P


I usually don't speak unusually about unusually unusual habits. :P

"kk" is actually a click at the back of your throat
"iii" simply say short i 3 times
uuu is pronunced say long u they french e (euh) then long u again

More verbs: eko to help osa to love amy to make
eao oaa aya
eyo oya ayy
eoe oea aey
euo ooa auy
oeo oia aiy
eio aoy

akmoe good
akma bad

Question can I use accents over letters to merely tell the difference between verb endings?

The history of scai!

Scai was spoken 4000 years ago by upper wielders and lower wielders (known as uaeas and ueaeo at the time.) It has just 4 or 5 letters in the alphabet. The conditional tense is determined by the pitch of voice and where the speaker looks. Lower weilders tend to call scai Yaea, which means "good people"

Yaea

Yaea tends to use more sign language than scai, and is older than scai as well.

differences:

Alphabet: e,y,a
verbs(not completed) :
Eya to like
Yae to dislike
Yea to hate
Eay to live
Aey to be
Aye to eat
Yay to drink
Yey to go

some verbs in english like to sew have no translation into Yaea because the lowere weilders have never seen or done sewing.

How to say I, You He She etc... (old Yaea)

Ae I
Ea you
Ya she
Ye he
Ey it
Ayy we
Eyy you
Yeaa they

Colors
White show teeth
Black open mouth
Red stick tongue out
Blue o click noise
Shiny screw eyes up
Yellow i click noise

Eaye 0
aeay 1
Ayey 2
Eyae 3
Eyay 4 or more

tenses, adjectives, colors and structure are the same. most nouns are signed.

I am in progress of making saeka (same family

so far:

Alphabet : e,y,a,u,s,k and w
verbs: aks,awk,ukw,aws,ews,akw and sku

Yaea, scai and saeka may be different but they all have some universal aspects

all have a mixture of signs and spoken words
all have the same tense system
all have verbs no longer than 3 letters long
and all have short alphabets
