Pairetorian Language

“Diphthongs up the diphthong”

Note: This is ALWAYS under construction! It’ll be updated continuously! Things may even change as I work out any linguistic kinks… ^_^

Treliamet Pairetoriasi sae naetiesin. Asael ke sekon aurati de sa kei.
Translation: “To speak Pairetorian is fun. Especially to word lovers like you and me.”

*The Pairetorian alphabet has here been Romanized for your convenience. 🙂

MECHANICS

(you can also see the category ‘Communication’ for more of this kind of stuff)

And: sa

Are: [see ‘Yes’]

At: [See ‘In’]

Be: (I still need to figure this the heck out. It’s quite complicated. xD)

For/On behalf of: tri (pronounced like ‘tree’)

If/in the event of: wir

In/inside/on/upon: ipir (can also mean ‘at’, as in being somewhere)

It: [see ‘The’]

 

Of/like: pae (can describe substance; also is oft used to make similie-comparisons)

*Made of ice= pae chask

                                *Heart of stone (poetic comparison)= auratel pae tepheagan

Or: asa

Out/outside/off: pir

The/that/this: ta (also may refer to ‘it’)

Through: pirripir

To/toward: lo

~Prefixes…

Pa-/po-: creates a past tense. So, ‘I flew’ = ‘ka pamereit’ (‘mereit’ is ‘fly’). ‘Pa’ is most commonly used but ‘po’ would be used on a word that already starts with ‘a’.

Ey-: ‘Ey’ is for Pairetorian what ‘ing’ is for English. So turning ‘siphta’ into ‘eysiphta’ is turning ‘read’ into ‘reading’. “I am reading” would be “keisa eysiphta”.

~Suffixes…

-i: pluralizes whatever noun. Example: aurato (lover/enthusiast) + -I = aurati (multiples of those). This won’t, though, usually be used to pluralize –o/-a ending words… the plural for euraespilo is still euraespilo. Euraespili is just multiple dreams, not dreamers (though you could refer to a dreamed one as just a dream I suppose :P).

-in: primary conversion of a noun to an adjective. Example: craela (light, subst.) + -in = craelin (lit, glowy)

-o/a: Describes someone or something as having a noun’s quality. Example: Trelit (a pretty sound) + -o/a = trelo/trela (pretty-sounding one; one of pretty sounds). This also can be used to compare something to something else (eyes like fire = ora pae craeliatho), and often can be seen converting a noun into a name (note that all names on Pairetoria are unisex, regardless of -a or -o endings). When a word already ending in a or o is made a name, its suffix changes to -ea/eo. Finally, this can be used to tell someone to do something… telling someone to fly is telling them to be a flier, so you would say ‘de merea’ to them if you wanted them to fly. Or ‘de liasa’ if you wanted them to walk/move. Or ‘de naetia’ if you wanted them to play.

-met/amet/emet/imet: To do something a verb describes. Example: mereit (fly) + -met = mereiamet (TO fly)

-ya: This is essentially a command to do something. Adding ‘ya’ at the end of a verb is telling someone or something to do the thing that verb describes. Example: ‘trelya’= telling someone to speak or sing.

-dae or -di: BE something an adjective describes. For example, telling someone ‘eagandi’ or ‘eagandae’ is telling them ‘be strong’.

ART

Art: eyan or aeyan (this can refer to the craft/trade of someone or creative expression in general)

~Artistic/creative: eyantrin/aeyantrin

~Creator/builder: taerilian

~Silver: pirro

~Gold: eyrcara

*Pairetorians can get very specific about their colors and hues and have many more words for colors than this. To list them all would take up much space, I fear. ^^; But here are a few examples of what I mean:
