Untorian Language

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

Ne oladhe skissi Untoriasa. Hsa re toria re akhiaq oladh dac.
Translation: “I enjoy speaking Untorian. Though the world it comes from is not so pleasant.”

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

MECHANICS

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

Also/as well as: segh

And: mat (or ma, shortened)

But/although/however: has

~Rather than/instead of: huor

From: tra

If: per

It: [see ‘The’]

Of/like: sohr (used for substance, or similie-comparisons. Note that this sort of ‘of’ is only for made of…)

*River made of blood= swool sohr plurrgh

The/that/this: re

To/toward: e”

~Suffixes:

                -a: pluralizes nouns. Kirlasper becomes kirlaspera, etc. If a noun already ends in –a or perhaps another vowel, the suffix will convert to –ra. Example: upraekha (prisoner) =upraekhara (multiple prisoners).

-pin: gives something the quality of a noun. Example: pera(stupidity) +-pin = perapin (stupid one). In the rather rare event that one should wish to compare someone/thing to a noun that already ends in –pin (atgaspin, mushroom), they would add an a before the pin (atgasapin, one like a mushroom xD).

-et: makes an adjective of a noun. Example: plurrgh (blood) + -et = plurrghet (bloody). Also, this is like the plural suffix, in that if a word already ends in a vowel sound, the adjective suffix will gain an r before it, becoming –ret. Example: pera(stupidity) + -ret = peraret(stupid). IMPORTANT: adjectives in Untoria always come AFTER a noun, EXCEPT when the two words are merged! Example: white scar will be ‘rhaz ixir’ separately, but ‘ixirhaz’ if one word is made from them. This word-merging quite often makes names for people.

-i: TO do something a verb describes. Example: skissa (speak) + -i = skissi (TO speak). This will also be used to convert a noun into a verb. Example: plurrgh (blood) + -i = plurrghi (bleed/to bleed).
