In that case, how do you say "aorta"? The standard pronunciation is /e:'ɔrtə/, with the same "a" as in "ace" or "apex".

If the sounds of the letter vary according to their position in the word (as they do in English), then you need to explain exactly how.

I actually haven't though about that, I will try to think about this. And again, thanks for commenting, your feedbacks can and will help to improve this language.

Well, this language has evolved a lot since it's conception. For example, all of the letters are now in. Here is a traditional Ceorza folk song that is sung in family meetings and the like. Try and spot some patterns in this language and especially this song.


Drakia elda, vie ji'latar.

Drecha por, vie ji'latar

trice ceyhan eid fajor,

vie ji'latar.


Shawot dra, shawot dra,

Tingra tei, eid vie ji'latar.


Enare sie, iuventia dai,

vie almare, eid vie firoce.

ceorza culture and history: The ceorza culture has traditionally centred on a small village community headed by an elder (tirisant) that the common people has to respect at all costs. Below the elder were the 4 ministers (kaitu) who was in charge of the day to day running of the community and to make public proclamations on behalf of the elder. In the distant past, the ceorzas and the Ku'mori once lived in close contact with each other until the event known as the ten-year war that permanently ended this friendship. The language spoken in that period branched off to the ancient ceorza dialect and the language of the Ku'mori. This also might explain the subtle similarities of the two languages.

When the ceorza's home planet was found by the humans as part of their Synergic Jump Drive experiments, they were surprised that the ceorza were living in relatively modern cities, including the port city of nadia and sanke, the capital of the ceorza nation. They even had a version of a democratic government. Possible cause of this might be their southern neighbours the Bretis.

When the humans arrived, the ceorzas were initially reluctant to accept these visitors but came to soon making friendly contact with them. There were some resistance factions with the intended goal to force the humans that they saw as invaders out of their nation. One can still find traditional village communities whose mission is to preserve the ceorza heritage and culture.

The ceorzas also nowadays has their tails cut at the age of 4 although some conservative ceorza sociteties like the aforementioned village communities chooses to retain their tails.
