In Northern Sarvonia the orcs have a common tongue to communicate with each other the so-called Kh'om'chr'om. With thousands of dialects this language is often necessary even between related tribes.

It consists of hard grunting sounds and hissing, sounding cruel and unforgiving to other races. It is as hard to learn as to master a life in most orcish societies.

Vocabulary we have so far:

More things to add:

K'arq = attacker ("the one who hits")
Arq'u = defender ("the one that is being hit")
Mar = Wolf
Y = small, young, weak
Y'oc = orcling

General info:
K' - before a verb indicates personal subject
'u - behind the verb indicates object or thing being acted upon.
m - a negative (to be put before a word)
Y - to make things smaller, younger, weaker when put before the word

Examples:

K'marq'u - I won't hit you, I'm not hitting you (lit. I no hit you) Of course, this can also mean "He isn't hitting her." or "They haven't hit anything!" * The Kuglimz bard and current orcen expert F'ash postulates that the additional meanings possible here are conveyed by context and possibly by gestures or other non-verbal signals.

K'b'rak'u - "We declare war on you!" (lit. 'We fight you!")

K'mar hnk y'oc'u -  "The wolf bit the baby." (lit. "subject-wolf bite baby-object")

K'm'y! - "I'm not a weakling!"

New words from the orcish religion thread:

Ahn’b’rak = Mythical first war (lit. The first declaration of war)
K’ahn’uck = Orcish god of war (lit. The first warrior)
Ahn = first
K‘ahn‘uck‘tscha = the name of their religion (lit. the word of K'ahn'uck)
Tscha = word

A few I came up with(mostly by compounding words) More to come at a later date.
Al(a) – god(ess)
Orcal – Godking.  Leader of the orcs
Oro – old “Orc of Oro” True Orcs- Follow the Old way.
Sophronia – Foresighted One
Alala- Wargodess (feminine of Warlord)
uck – suffix denoting an occupation involving combat(warrior)
Nt – to take away (an object)
Ash’Haz – Elite Guard
Eme-y’cha – Fire Daughter
Emesz – fire
Y’cha – literally little woman.  Daughter, girl
M’ashz – literally unhonorable. Used as scum or barbaric as seen when describing Losh-oc

Whoa whoa - what are you doing with Sophronia and Alala being Orcish words?  shocked   I'm fairly certain that they wouldn't even be able to pronounce 'Sophronia'!  Were those supposed to be in a different thread, or do you have a reasoning for that?

Just discovered that we do have an orcish word for blood--"Tlor", from the Squillfung entry, only somehow it never got compiled.

Hey...can I use that word for my disease? Ghun Tlor...sounds orcen to me!
Logged

No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. And that, I fear, for any reasoning, conscious being, would be the cruelest trick of all.

I've just adden the name of the Giant's brother in my Ironwood entry. I've called him Ha'acho Ha'k, which means roughly The Sword Maker.

Ha'acho  -  make(r), build(er)

Ha'k  -  sword  (therefore a longsword is Ha'akh Ha'k)

Hope you like 'em.

And if that doesn't work, try switching it off and back on again.

Some more suggestions for words. Some were invented, some are based on Klingon (which sounds very similar), and some, believe it or not, came out of the IKEA furniture catalogue!

MOK
NOK
PORACK  -  Feast. Also used as the name of a haggis-like meal, served on special occasions
BORA  -  Feet, foot
DORA  -  Hands, hand
AKA  -  Stomach
BURKA
BATA - Any striking/clubbing weapon.
BATUK  -  used by Rookie to mean plant, weed, grass etc. Anything that isn't a tree.
TULAK  -  Large animal, beast (Horse, Thunderfoot etc)
GOSHAK
TAK  -  Boar, pig
G'THAZAG CHA
GOL'KOSH
LOK'TAR
OGAR
THROM'KA
MOKLOK


Feel free to use or discard as necessary.

Do we have anything which would mean plant/foliage?  I'm trying to make an orcen name for my Savage Mushroom and I was thinking of using "k'arg" (attacker) and somehow making it into "Plant who attacks/hits".  That style-o'-thing.  Unless anyone has any more creative ideas of course!

I recently come up with an orkish march, but in Santharia there are some words, which do not exist in Kh'omchr'om. What should I do, invent missing words on my own and put them into the march's lyrics?

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
