Nuganip Xoli! Does anyone have any ideas about stony talk?

Postby Myrtonos » Thu 16 Aug 2012 5:15 am

In the first level of a video game called Banjo Tooie, sequal to Banjo-Kazooie, that cannot be understood by the bear and bird.

Here is a list of them all and another relavnt page. I have no idea what the most common word, nuganip means, but here it is:

1: Outside Kickball Colleseum
Tyoxt icx zigna xaqis kirml nuganip icxptoi

2: Kickball Game Coach
Nuganip aslik wik weka pojit yz thikko. Kik yu butta

3: In Training Area
Yusa stpido gitaaz

4: Also In Training Area
Ica kik yuz fura butoxxi

5: In the training area AS WELL.
Ugili bir a byyrd isa

6: By the warp pad enar Wumba's Wigwam.
Xaqabat ul kaz-o-iee dim byrd datsrite ha ha

7: By the grip grab technique near the quicksand.
Nanobak cug quaggi kyc nuganip icx xoli fop ni topliz

8: In the prison compound. If your a stony you get the code.
Icx dib zaqim avlnr icx tsoqa xoli. Nuganip yumk ica carxko

9: Only one in Hailfire Peaks.
Aslig weuk wekl posj mlas

I have no idea what the most common word, nuganip means but here is my impression of sample vocabulary:

Aslik (Aslig in the Halfire peaks dialect) -fire [think of arson]
Xaqabat -Banjo
ul - and [at least within a clause]
Quaggi - Quicksand
Xoli - (liquid) water
Mlas - ice

I guess those "insulting" parts are supposed English interpetations of the stonies incoprehesible talk, much like a sonorami.

I'm not really sure what kind of replies you were hoping for. "Stony talk" often appears to be a cipher of English, but sometimes it's just unrecognizable. I think somebody needs to decide what exactly defines a conlang.
Native: English
Fluent: français
Basic: Cymraeg
Really basic: Español, lingua latīna
Conlangs (current): tikolmil, llyffws, Arliks, dilir
