Çirkhin Khena ჩირხინ ხენა

Postby Cthulhu » Sun 06 Jun 2010 3:50 am

New conlang! I have been reviewing the Georgian language and alphabet, and I have to say, I find it beautiful. So, I made a language using the Georgian alphabet, and with a distinct Georgian atmosphere.

To start!

There are no capital letters in Çirkhin, and it only uses the Mkhedruli alphabet, not Asomtavruli or Nuskhuri.

Alphabet and phonemes.

ა an A a /ɑ/
ბ ban B b /b/
გ gan G g /ɡ/
დ don D d /d/
ე en E e /ɛ/
ვ vin V v /v/
ზ zen Z z /z/
თ tan T t /tʰ/
ი in I i /i/
კ k'an K' k' /kʼ/
ლ las L l /l/
მ man M m /m/
ნ nar N n /n/
ო on O o /ɔ/
პ p'ar P' p' /pʼ/
ჟ žan Zh zh /ʒ/
რ rae R r /r/
ს san S s /s/
ტ t'ar T' t' /tʼ/
უ un U u /u/
ფ par P p /pʰ/
ქ kan K k /kʰ/
ღ ğan Ğ ğ /ɣ/
ყ q'ar Q' q' /qʼ/
შ šin Sh, sh /ʃ/
ჩ čin Ch ch /tʃ/
ც can Ts ts /ts/
ძ jil Dz dz /dz/
წ c'il Ts' ts' /tsʼ/
ჭ č'ar Ch' ch' /tʃʼ/
ხ xan Kh kh /x/
ჯ jjar Jj,jj /dʒ/
ჰ han H, h /h/

Simple pronouns and noun markers.

I/me- კა
You(masc)/You (fem)- სა/ სე
He/ she/it- ღუ/ ღე
We- დაშ
You all (equivalent of french vous)- ღაშ

I will elaborate, now that finals are done I will have time to burn on hobbies like conlanging.

You may, but it is written in Georgian script anyway.

Are those the only pronouns or just those in the absolutive case?

These are the only pronouns for now. I think i'll make it SOV, there seems to be a lot of SVO languages lately.

Declension for tense.

ჩირხინ ხენა has three basic tenses.

Present

Past

and Future.

The first non-proper noun in the sentence is always declined for tense.

The basic declensions are: (for -ქა (-k'a) nouns)

Present- none, use regular noun

Past- -ღიძ (ğidz) so 'I have a cow.' 'კა სალ გირუზქა ყაბიყ.' /ka sal giruzk'a qabiq/
would be 'კა სალ გირუზიღიძ ყაბაკ.' /ka sal giruziğidz qabak/ ( I had a cow)
note, if the noun does not end with a vowel after removing the -ქა ending then you add an ი /i/ before adding the declension.

Future- -დან (dan) so, the same sentence 'კა სალ გირუზქა ყაბიყ.' would conjugate to 'კა სალ გირუზიდან ყაბუყ.' /ka sal giruzidan qabuq/

Up next, CONJUGATION! what fun!

Sure, I meant to.

I/me-k'a
you(masc)- sa you(fem)- se
he/it- ğu she- ğe
we- daš
you (plural)- ğaš
they(masc)- qu they(fem)- qe

also, bit of a mix-up. ქ= k and კ= k' , not the other way around, as I showed in the romanizations of my declensions.

Thanks. two questions:
1. Is the ' in k'a a glottal stop?
2. How is the ğ pronounced without the IPA?

1. no, the ' indicates it is an ejective, here is a sound sample. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%CA%BC click the sound sample button under the general info.
2. here is a sound sample to show you how it is pronounced. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voiced_velar_fricative
same deal.
