Title: Kuglimz’seitre
Post by: Drogo on 06 January 2002, 15:03:00
This is what I have so far for the Kuglimz language, any suggestions or criticisms would be helpful.  Especially from our resident dwarven language expert ;)  hehe

Kuglimz’seitre (Language of the Tribes)

Words are mostly a combination of simple words, as these people have no written language or history.   ‘E’ is always before ‘I’, and they are most often used in conjunction with each other. They are pronounced in a short e sound.  As in fed. ‘Z’ is added at the end of words to make them plural.  The word “of” is not used, rather implied.  

Simple Words

Veir –death
Tentam –final
Rik – flower
Tyan – all
Taug –feast
Wigden – mountain
Lu –fortress
Beina –sister
Geinar –brother
Turg –rock
Zei –camp
Sur –father
Leir –mother
Rarik- season
Mystrume- battle
Ian- of, or coming from
Kuglim- tribe
Seitre- language
Aek- insect
Drkeir- dragon
Ash- rabid
Mari- wolf
Lyr- son
Tog- great

Alth- plant

Rouk- people
Wuk- globe/sphere

Complex words are the joining of two simple words with an apostrophe between to denote the joining.  If a word is made of two simple words the noun is always by the adjective .  Example: Rik’tyan, tyan meaning all and rik meaning flower.  Since “all” is describing the flower, it comes after flower.  Thus the structure ends up as rik’tyan.  

Rik’tyan- all flower. An important flower, that blooms for three days in the month of alé'veván.
Taug Rik’tyan- feast of the all flower.  It celebrates the birth of the tribes’ deities, the Virtog.
Sur’tyan-all father.  The father of the Virtog.
Leir’tyan- all mother.  The mother of the Virtog.
Rarik’mystrume- battle season. A traditional time for skirmishes and wars, lasting from the month méh'avashín through to chúh'querín.
Beinaz’mur- three sisters.  A group of three nearly identical hills in the Celeste Lowlands.
Seitre’kuglimz- language of tribes, it is the different tribe’s language
Veir’tentam- final death.  It is death where there is no hope of reincarnation.  It is believed to usually be caused by sorcery.
Aek’miev- white bug, name for the “white spiral” butterfly
Alth’ho- animal grass. found in the plains and is used to pastured animals
Kuglimz’torik- home tribes. Words used to describe the Kuglimz of the Celeste Lowlands
Kuglimz’ura- plain tribes.  Words used to describe the Kuglimz of the Mynina and Heigrik plains
Rouk’oriot- light people. Beings that live in the sky and are made of a light substance
Wuk’oriot- light globe. Stars
Fei’put- blood ring.  Iron ring made from an enemies weapon that signifies you killed him.

Numbers

For any number above ten, until you reach a hundred, the words are combined.  The same rules follow as with word combination. Ex: Teig’brak = eighty five.

Vir- one
Nuk- two
Mur- three
Nek- four
Teig- five
Vurg- six
Zeir- seven
Brak- eight
Ceid- nine
Seik- ten




Directions

North and West are corrupted forms of the Elvish terms, several such words can be found throughout the language.  This is due to the inherent closeness of the Kuglimz and the elves of the Shaded Forest, back when the Kuglimz were all one people with an empire centered around what are now the ruins of Weavermoth.

Oreil- North
Queig- East
Tulka- South
Pyrga- West

Meiv- white
Coeir- black
Myt- gray
Garg- red
Foirk- blue
Leiten- green
Garirk- purple

Ralhag has mailed me a collected vocabulary (till letter F), so maybe you two should discuss a bit what he already has done and how far it is useable or if there are changes necessary etc.

Its your call Drogo, on whether or not to use my stuff....

Your stuff is as alway, very well done, so you make the call.

I, of course, would like it in, and to have our things merged, if possible, but whatever you want.

At yer service,

Ralhag
