Atükan

Postby XshadowX » Wed 09 Jun 2010 2:32 am

This is my new language. Atükan (ah too kahn).

Currently there is an alphabet of 29 letters and 7 words and a suffix.

Italics means that the letter is pronounced like it is in english

Bold means that the diphthong has the same pronunciation as a single letter does for each letter but it is slurred.

Alphabet : Pronunciation
a : ah
ä : ay
à : a as is pat or van
b
d
e : eh
f
g
h
i : ee
ì : ih
í : eye
j
k
l
m
n
o : oh
ö : ow
p
r
s
t
u : uh
ü : oo
v
w
z
ae
ai


ao
au


----------------------------
I need some help with the language. So if you would please send me some words for Atükan with pronunciation and definition it would be a great help. Please PM me. DO NOT POST THE WORDS YOU MAKE UP ON THIS TOPIC!!! PLEASE PM

Could you use IPA or at leas X-SAMPA to show the phonetic values of your language?

Well, I'd really like to know how to properly pronounce the language, can I ask why?

Also, will this be SVO, SOV, OVS? I need some kind of outline, man.

1. I don't know IPA
2. I don't have a clue what you're talking about

I'm talking about word order, will it be subject-verb-object, subject-object-verb, object-verb-subject? Why did you join a language forum without the faintest knowledge of linguistics?

You just ruined my night. You're saying that I am dumb in linguistics just because I haven't studied IPA or SOVs and all that. This is why I hate sharing my stuff. When people ask questions and I answer them with an I don't know or something, somebody insults me. Please don't ask why I even posted this because the answer is because of my love of language.

I figured it was a simple enough question. I didn't insult you In the slightest, just asked why you joined the forum if you did not know much about linguistics. I'll try to be cordial about this.

In my mind you did. Just forget it.

EDIT: I think IPA is confusing. I heard about SVO but never studied that stuff. I don't want to use IPA cause I find comparing different sounds and such is a lot easier.
