The north Wind and the Sun

Postby abc_conlang_123 » 2014-10-14, 18:46

THE NORTH WIND AND THE SUN
Would you like to translate this well-known fable into your conlang ?
If you do it, please post the natlang version you have used, as there are a lot of slightly different versions.

My natlang ( italian ) starting version : [hide]Un giorno, il sole e la Tramontana litigavano, e l’uno pretendeva di essere più forte di quell’altro, quando hanno visto un viaggiatore che veniva innanzi avvolto nel suo mantello. I due litiganti decisero allora che quello che avrebbe fatto togliere il mantello al viaggiatore sarebbe stato il più forte. Il vento di tramontana cominciò a soffiare con violenza, ma più soffiava, più il viaggiatore si avvolgeva nel suo mantello ; tanto che, alla fine, il povero vento dovette lasciar perdere il suo proposito. Il sole allora si mostrò in cielo, e poco dopo il viaggiatore, che sentiva caldo, si tolse il mantello. E la tramontana fu costretta a riconoscere che il sole era più forte di lei. T’è piaciuta la storia ? La vogliamo ridire ?[/hide]

My first conlang ( based on northern italian dialects ) : "Ra Tramuntàna e ur Sor"
Un di, ur sor e ra tramuntàna i sa lidgavan, e r'un ur partandeva da èsar pju fòrt dur artar, kwant i ann vüst un vjazadòr k'ur vgniva inànz arvurturàt int ur sö mantèl. I dü lidgoint i dezzidìnn alòra ka kur k'ur arès fat kavàr ur mantèl ar vjazadòr ur sarèf stat ur pju fòrt. Ur vènt da tramuntàna ur takò a supjàr kòn vjulènza, ma pju ur supjava, pju ur vjazadòr ur sa štrikava int ur sö mantèl ; tont ke, ara fin, ur pòvar vènt ur dvi lašàr pèrdar ur sö prupòsit. Ur sor alòra ur's mustrò in zel, e pòk dòp ur vjazadòr, k'ur santiva cjart, ur's cjavò ur mantèl. E ra tramuntàna ra fo kustrèta a rkgnòsar k'ur sor ur era pju fòrt da lia. T'èla pjažüda ra šturjèla ? A ra vlamja ardìr ?

[ ũ di, ur sor e ra tramuŋˈtãna i sa lidˈgavaŋ , e rũ ur partaŋˈdeva da ɛsar pju fɔrt dur artar, kwãt i an vyst ũ vjadzaˈdɔr kur vɲiva iˈnãts arvurtuˈrat ĩt ur sø maŋˈtɛl. i dy lidˈgoĩt i detsiˈdin aˈlɔra ka kur kur aˈrɛs fat kaˈvar ur maŋˈtɛl ar vjadzaˈdɔr ur saˈref stat ur pju fɔrt. ur vɛ̃t da tramuŋˈtãna ur taˈkɔ a suˈpjar kɔ vjuˈlɛ̃tsa, ma pju ur suˈpjava, pju ur vjadzaˈdɔr ur sa ʃtriˈkava ĩt ur sø maŋˈtɛl ; tõt ke, ara fĩ, ur pɔar vɛ̃t ur dvi laˈʃar pɛrdar ur sø pruˈpɔzit. ur sor aˈlɔra urs musˈtrɔ ĩt tsel, e pɔk dɔp ur vjadzaˈdɔr, kur saŋˈtiva cart, urs caˈvɔ ur maŋˈtɛl. e ra tramuŋˈtãna ra fo kusˈtrɛta a rkɲɔsar kur sor ur era pju fɔrt da lia. tɛla pjaʒˈyda ra ʃtuˈrjɛla ? a ra vlamja arˈdir ? ]

My second conlang, based on arpetan ( no orthography yet ) : "La Tramontã-a e lu Sué"
[hide][ jõ di, lu swe e la tramõˈtãa sə lidiˈdzeːva, lõ pərtĩˈdeːva dɛtrə plyˈse foːrt də kal ɑːtru, kãd an vyt jõ vjazaˈdoːr kə vəˈɲeːva ĩnãs vuˈte nəl søu maˈ̃tɛlu. lu du lidiˈdzãt dəsiˈdinu kə kal kə aˈre fɑːt tsaˈvar lu maˈ̃tɛlu a lu vjazaˈdoːr saˈre əˈte lu plyˈse foːrt. lu vĩtu də tramõˈtãa kumĩˈsi a suˈflar kõ vjuˈĩsa, me plyˈse suˈfleːva, plyˈse lu vjazaˈdoːr sə triˈɲeːva nəl søu maˈ̃tɛlu ; tãt kə, ala fĩ lu poːr vĩt təˈni laˈsar əˈta lu søu pruˈpoːzitu. lu swe aˈloːra sə muˈtri ən seu, e poːk dup lu vjazaˈdoːr kə sĩˈteːva kɑːd, sə tsaˈvi lu maˈ̃tɛlu. e la tramõˈtãa fy kuˈtrɛta a rəkuˈnusər kə lu swe eːra plyˈse foːrt də ɛla. tɛ plaˈzøa la kõta ? la vuˈlɛmna rəˈdir ? ][/hide] Abandoned phase of this conlang, I have done a new version

Shouldn't it be "hanno visto" in "quando anno visto un viaggiatore?" (sorry, I have a thing for correcting errors that I can readily… correct :lol: )

Sounds great! I will start working on the Isyan version later :)

I have ever translated the story into Lonmai Luna/Liunan, one of my conlangs, below is the Lonmai Luna/Liunan version for The north Wind and the Sun:

Alen Dasolfup fo alen Der

Alen Dasolfup fo alen Der alo, dala leksi hair mal amak los dala kodat iden.

Hamo dala tarnas, dala dem hiles tompostik mal sedo nel boder hiles nereku.

Alen Dasolfup fo alen Der akento hir hilok dal mal talor tacan tompostik on boder nereku dale, los dala kodat iden.

Adalo alen Dasolfup hulta oli tompostik on, pedi yoder alen Dasolfup hulta ep kodat iden, tompostik on akem dak ik nereku on ep simet iden.

Alen Dasolfup modo pan tacan tompostik on boder nereku on, adalo alen Dasolfup tacan melsi.

Motu alen Der sedo sum gaiferki gaidista tompostik on ik derkodera imon dak, tompostik on alo dala tacan boder nereku on naska alen Der sedo.

Adalo alen Dasolfup fo alen Der alo dala akento hir alen Der los dala kodat iden.

My conlang based on arpetan, with orthography and IPA : "La Tramontana e lo sôo"

Yon di, lo sôo e lo vènto de tramontana ruzevo, e l’on pretendeve d’ètre plusé fòrt de sé âtro, cand hann vedù yon viazadeur que aleve avànt envelopó nel seu mantêo. Lo du ruzaro hann determinó pu que sito que aré fâ tsavare lo mantêo al viazadeur saré etó lo plusé fòrt. Lo vènto de tramontana ha comensó a soflare con violènsa, me plusé sopleve, plusé lo viazadeur s’envelopeve dans lo seu mentêo ; demâ que, ala fin, lo pôro vènto ha tenù lasar perdere lo seu fin. Lo sôo pu s’è motró dans lo sêo, e peuco aprèso lo viazadeur, que senteve tsâdo, s’è tsavó lo mantêo. E la tramontana è etóa cotrèta a recognòsere que lo sôo ere plusé fòrt de èla.

I'm finally done with translating the fable to my germlang, Gutiskar. I used a combination of English and Norwegian for this.

Nurðvindar an Sylar
Nurðvindar an Sylar bèvægður, ƕaðrar starkira vas, ƕæn fararir kwam ýv, varman mantlè klæþondur. Hit jatiður eð sumar ƕar fyrstar farari mundí sako sínan mantlè avneman, ƕihþras starkira skuldí vera. Sva Nurðvindar alla sína avló blèlæs, mé mær blèlæs, mær þíhtvé sir fararir mantlè ivi sek fèvelþ, an svivnó Nurðvindar ývgav. Æm Sylar varmó ýfskæn, an æntínvé sir fararir mantlè avnam. An sva Nurðvindar þurfté anhætan eð Sylar starkira bæs vas.

In Novbasa:

Un din, Sol wa Nord Vat tolun-xa, wa un afirmati es plus-bal kwam ali, kwan le vid un safar-nik ke avan-it-xa in huy kapa. Ergo i du tolun-nik jwedin ke ki sa li kar al safar-nik vek-mov al kapa, he sa es al plus-bal. Nord Vat kayxi sufli hinsa-di, lekin plus he sufli, plus al safar-nik se involuti in huy kapa; hasta, ahir-di, meskin Vat deb fanci huy niya. Ergo Sol se xow in akax, wa pok-post al safar-nik, ke sent garm, vek-mov al kapa. Wa Nord Vat deb admiti ke Sol es plus-bal kwam he. Tu li ay al kisah? Cu no yao re-bol he?

I used the german version to translate (http://gutenberg.spiegel.de/buch/johann ... eln-2017/1). But putting the english words in my code you may get

Do bejon it nordwind med allen sinen kraft bleasend, ak ja harder er blias, ja dihter hullede it reasigar him in sinen mantel; at inen end jaw it nordwind den oer. Denafter bejon it son kraftig stralend, end medden toag it reasigar sinen mantel uet. Do moest it nordwind tojewn det it son beadar sterkest war.

The North Wind and the Sun were disputing which was the stronger, when a traveler came along wrapped in a warm cloak. They agreed that the one who first succeeded in making the traveler take his cloak off should be considered stronger than the other. Then the North Wind blew as hard as he could, but the more he blew the more closely did the traveler fold his cloak around him; and at last the North Wind gave up the attempt. Then the Sun shined out warmly, and immediately the traveler took off his cloak. And so the North Wind was obliged to confess that the Sun was the stronger of the two.

Miwonša

Spira yošna ya suonsa čhayačan lhanskai, čwo uyak yakwiwan caskul, nak acui kjačwan wa manti cušni čhiwakwonit.
Ti khayanjat, stai ula sanšai cwaskul, šula phašai kjačwani ak mantik aklašastanti. Spira khuyašan ti hašno cam pašli, nač cam hašnul khuyašiwan, ti pjučul kjačwan wa mantiš mayatsastat.

Thanks for posting that English version, Quetzalcoatl! I'm going to translate it into Mountain Lion, then back-translate into English. :mrgreen:

English back-translation

The cold wind said to the sun, "I'm stronger than you!" The sun said, "No! I'm the strongest." Then a man came, a human with (a) big fur, a cloak. The cloak warmed the human up. The wind said, "See a human coming? I'm the strongest, so I'll make the human drop his cloak!" The sun said, "No! I'm the strongest, so I'll make the human drop his cloak." The wind and the sun said he who made the human drop his cloak would be the strongest.

The cold wind blew a loooooot, but the more the cold wind blew, the more the human cuddled with his cloak. The wind said, "Darn! I can't make the human drop his cloak. :(" Then the sun rose with much heat, so the human was very hot. His tongue was sticking out because it was so hot! The human dropped his cloak on the ground. Thus, the cold wind said, "Okay, (Sun,) you are the strongest."

Here's a Silvish translation of the English version Quetzalcoatl posted.

L'egre ed u soliug se diputàvana por u chel'iera plepa furt, canc'arrivò un viagzaür povesud d'un plirin cháud. Éssis dicidicèrona de considerâ comi plepa furt soì chi obligzarau a li viagzaüri c'embári le siév plirin. Alô, l'egre bufò de tódis lis siévis fórciis, mes plepa és bufò, plepa u viagzaür serrò le siév plirin a li sievi corpi ; e enfini l'egre abandunò li iforci. Alô, u soliug lugiczau d'un luméi cháud e, sobre li cupi, u viagzaür embarò le siév plirin. E por quo, fu obligzad a li egri ca richanicia li solegli comi u plepa furt intre sòr dos.
