jallvå is somekind of lost conlang of mine which I love to write in.
It has such an interesting syntax and grammar.
It's a mix of icelandic, finnish, russian and greek.
here is a story.
-Ignøppann vings ëmim år slůr aurjë.
Aurër alð liku ø epa kůðrů ova år egnøppa alavdulla slůrur:øsv.
Liku aurju alan ůppa aurja vessilell ø jatt ø ranv kartåna aulljå, fin aura øppajo alan gullůnu, þjullju aurů gůllu:øsvu peldjevaxa.
Ørrengů alolu, unta alaln rem ůrsaljårů ø ůřdd opëð bůğalnå ollëm.
-A man who had a family was fishing in the bay by his house. He had a wife and two children which helped their father in the little house.
His wife helped her man with the fished, coocked and took care of their girl, while it was the man that was helping the boy, teaching that little boy the art of fishing.
When the night had come, the family came together around a table and ate what they had fished during the day.
A guide to pronounciation.
a - a like in finnish
e - e like in let
i - like in finnish
o - like in finnish
u - like in finnish
ů - like finnish "y".
ø - like norwegien
au - åo.
most consonants are like in finnish.
x - ks
ð - th in mother
þ - th in girth
j - like in yes. finnish
ř - like icelandic final r, or if you like better, a slight r that sounds like sh.
There is that tricky phrase even I get mixed up...but yeah:
fin aura øppajo alan gullůnu, þjullju aurů gůllu:øsvu peldjevaxa.
while the man, he helped the boy, teaching that litte boy the art of fishing.
Nouns have cases:
but there are only three declensions which are very much alike eachother.
Unfortunatly, plural relies of complexe gradation of consonants.
verbs have moods, compound moods, morphological insertions (a consonant, -l for 2nd personne and -n for third are inserted and those are..how to say...flexible. they change very very much.
Exemple :l- ln , n, *, ð. Meaning l can become ln, n, nothing or ð.)
A thousands of mididiers.
But, there are only 4 tenses. Present past future in perfect and imperfect (present perfect is actualy plusqueperfectum).
It has 3 moods (passive, active and medium)
Participles are either active or passive in both tenses, past and present
There is a gerondive
there is amphasis, which can be quite hard to translate.
here we see it in
øppajo [øppa, man + jo, amphasis]
Which means, ín french. L'homme lui.
There are 4 levels of amphasis, which work as qualitatives on adjectives (very, alot, very much, quite ).
Vowels and consonants change.
Consonants, considerably more than vowels.
Adjectives take accord with the declension in gradation, and in number with gradation as well.
1st declension singular ~ plural
Ulme ~ umne
2nd, singular~ plural
Ulpe ~ umpe
3rd, singular ~ plural
Ulve ~ uvde
Plus, they also accord with the noun's last vowel.
The number system I am quite proud of.
Here are 0-10 numbers.
For exeptions of Ne (0) and En (1), the numbers start up in the mouth, and go down into the throwth.
if anyone is interested in it, I would love to give more presisions.

This text by the way, is for a project in art, in school.
