I have no clue where this is supposed to be categorized under HAHA -sob-

Basic grammar of Assanna, an ancient language of Yoryyn/Guarmi.

...this is so nerdy it hurts. :iconfacepalmplz:
I'll add to the nerdism, dictionary and alphabet grid coming soon...it's just...taking me forever to transcribe it onto the computer klsajdf I made an Assanna font a long time ago and IT'S NOT WORKING ARGH so I'm having to remake it.

Is this based on some other language, or did you just make this all up? Since many fantasy languages ( such as elvish in LOTR ( which is mostly based on Finnish ) ) are based on / are inspired by other languages.. Just wondering uvu''

Once I get it transcribed to the computer I'll send you a copy or post it or something kk. Besides even if you had the dictionary the words are conjugated so you need to know the basic grammar first anyway. >>>:I
Well then here is one new phrase just for you to end the day:

Elires ruqwa!
Good night!

Huh I was half expecting there to be no he/she gender pronouns, which I personally like in languages and I find it to be the most alien concept in comparison to the English language... so it helps make a language seem more outlandish to the English community.

We seem to get online around the same time often...ANYWAY

Interesting. o: The reason why I included gender pronouns is that some of the tribes in Yoryyn are more divided by gender role than others - so whether they use the pronouns or not is really a cultural preference. Spirits and other such beings don't have any gender pronouns as they don't have a gender/ isn't culturally important. These are really the basic of the basic grammar, there's several different pronouns and dialects that are exclusive and/or situational to each part of the world, but for the sake of simplicity I just decided on this singular, "main" dialect of Assanna. xD There are gender neutral pronouns and specific conjugations for them but they get kind of complicated because verb and pronoun prefixes/suffixes get a bit messy when they are pre-divided by cultural divide and other linguistic mechanisms...if that even makes sense...The gender differentiation just fit well with the concept of the "mother tree" and what she stands for in Yoryyn lore.

Wow sorry kind of rambled even though it wasn't really a question LOL

Pshh naw it's coo. I liked hearin the reasoning. RANT ALL YOU WANT.

Alright though, makes sense. So it's more of a, "It's preference and situational dependent, but there is a need at some point so it exists".

So, so impressed. How long did it take you to construct this lovely language?!
The you must be quite linguistically-minded! Just out of curiosity, how many languages do you know? :3
Urge to learn this.. RISING. <3

Eep, thank you!
I originally had the basics constructed when I was in jr high, but I just polished it so that it would function in the past year or so (really making up the vocabulary is the tedious part sakjd ).
I only speak 2 fluently,I've studies others for a few years but when you don't use it daily they kind of start to fade haha. ;;

Ohh I see, thanks! <3 And that's true. You can't beat a daily-speaking partner or better yet in-country exposure for language. Troublesome for made-up ones I imagine!
So it's a long time in the making huh. It's beautiful~ I for one would love to hear some correct pronunciation of it! ;D *shot*

Haha, on and off I suppose! Thank you~!
LOL oh gosh, that would be quite the project...Maybe once I get a mic or something, audio lessons?!?! -shot- jk
Hopefully once I upload the alphabet, it's a lot easier to visualize what the words sound like since it's phonetic unlike English.

This is really well done! I love the 'Spirit tree end you' phrase. :giggle: Man...your imagination must be on a whole another level to come up with something like this *_*
I'm curious though - would members of Yoryyntel be expected to know Assanna and RP using it?

that doesn't count - it's my mother tongue :U

so ... I guess all shamans have to be able to speak assanna? Or only when speaking to the spirits? Or... is it just for general reference? Just wondering how it will be used~

:iconmonokroe:
monokroe Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
LOL well I am envious Spike, German hates me. XD

Ah, nope! It's not mandatory, this is really just for fun. In the chatroom, if there's no shamans present, I will have the spirits speak Assanna just so members who haven't completed their puzzle requirements don't really have "access" to them. |D Though after a few shaman puzzles I'll be reverting to English. I'll probably also have some extra assignments for people who want to do them related to the language, but that's about it.

Ahhh I see I see~ But shamans in general would be able to speak it then - like using it with the english as in random shoutouts or greetings, right? I find the idea awesome, tho~ Makes the groupconcept even more than it already is~
I'll so be applying \ :U / Can't wait for everything to be set up~
