Værí, a constructed language of mine

Postby Vilņa » Thu 26 May 2011 3:33 pm

Hi,
This is a conlang of mine that I would like to share, Værí. It is for my fictional world. I currently have 5 languages that I am working on, and this is my first. Here is the alphabet; the grammar and a small word list are coming soon.
This language is the one I am going in most detail with; I am translating the dictionary.

Alphabet:
a, c, d, e, f, h, i, k, l, ļ, m, n, ņ, o, p, r, ŗ, s, t, u, v, w, y, æ, œ
Vowels:
a, á, â, e, é, ê, i, í, î, o, ó, ô, u, ú, û, æ, ǽ, œ

Pronunciation coming VERY soon, I need to find the right IPA symbols.

A couple of grammar rules to tide everyone over:
Syntax is: Subject(adjective)-direct object-indirect object-verb/adverb
When writing in the Latin-based alphabet, proper nouns, proper pronouns, and nouns used as a subject are capitalized.

Oh, by the way, "Vilņa", my username, means "wind" in Værí.

I have a con-script for Værí, and I will be sending it to omniglot.com soon. It is called "Vilņa Lítra", meaning Wind Script.

The history of Værí:
The word "Værí" literally translates into "language of the wise". Værí is spoken by a race of humanoids called the Vær (the Wise) that dwell on the island of Ránus. The Vær used to speak a dialect called Vāerē, but that dialect is now obscure and only spoken by the oracle Sūyas, the King of Anthar, and the Sêusathpos. After their exile from Távor, the Vær gradually lost their old language, and slowly started speaking the dialect they do today. Several attempts were made by King Arûv IX to restore the Old Dialect, but these attempts were ultimately futile, and Vāerē is all but lost to the people of Ránus.

I can't believe you can't believe that. You haven't really posted anything yet except an alphabet.

Don't get me wrong, I'm interested to see what else you have to post. There just isn't much there to comment on yet, which is why you haven't gotten any comments.

I see. Well, you won't have to wait much longer. The grammar/suffix/prefix list is almost completed.
