My Conlang

Postby culúrien » 2006-02-09, 0:22

I've spent a few years working on my conlang, skippian. I want to let the world know of it now though! So this is just some simple text from the first lesson I ever wrote and I just thought I'd share:

Penlla, Zàmfran ch'al? Ch'urin jén. Zàmfranla ch'im zalkam? Ulèrk zalkam'im bach. Kibri masaph'ajé? Masaph'allaph Ph'ókunkbré chin ch'urin Jémifé. Kibri masaph'ajé? Masaph'allaph Llónim chin ch'urin Brabéfé. Frémán!

Since I'm not that old, when I started this it wasn't based off any language specifically, but as I've studied more languages it's become almost fully functional. There are definite celtic and romance influences, though not necesarily obvious. So I thought I'd start adding some skippian to the translations in the translation forum now that many of the kinks are worked out.

Ch at front of word gets apostrophe (ch'elo)
h always get apostrophe unless at end of word (h'an)
ph gets apostrophe unless at end of word (ph'im)

preopositions and articles are attached at end of words.

Conjugation of ch'on (to be)
ch'urin (I am)
ch'alam (you are singular informal)
ch'amáni (you are singular formal)
ch'al (he is)
ch'el (she is)
ch'amm (we are)
ch'elo (you are informal/formal plural)
ch'an (they are)

Adjectives:
cóndosi-driver
jami-student
alinn-boy
ddan-girl

article:
the:
la after a consonant
sa after a vowel

the girl: ddanla
the student: jamisa

a/an:
jo after consonant
chó after vowel

a girl: ddanjo
a student: jamichó

very loose structure, but at this stage keep it as it is in english (besides endings)

The boy is a driver:
Alinnla ch'al cóndocichó.

Translate into Spégèn/Skippian:
1.I am a driver.
2.He is a boy.
3.The girl is a driver.
4.I am a girl.
5.The boy is a student.

Preview of next lesson:
pluralizing articles, saying where you're from, where you live, regular -n conjugations, pronounciation and question words

I take it, that the verb can also imply the pronoun? (like in spanish)

Ie: "Yo soy un hombre" or "soy un hombre"

1. Ch'urin cóndosichó
2. Ch'al alinnjo
3. ddanla ch'el cóndosichó
4. Ch'urin ddanjo
5. alinnla ch'al jamichó

You are correct about implied pronouns! I'm glad to see you're taking to it :P

I'll check your exercises tomorrow probably (too hyper right now :P )
