note: All Faen verb infinitives end in 'a'

1. Expansion into Pronoun-based Terminology

Infinitive reduced to last consonent----> Comara (To Eat)=Comar

I- Addition of 'i'- Comari

You- Addition of 'o'- Comaro

He/She- Addition of 'as'- Comaras

We- Addition of 'is'- Comaris

You All- Addition of 'os'- Comaros

They- Addition of 'an'- Comaran

2. Creation of Adjectives from Nouns

When noun ends in Vowel------>Addition of 'nte'------> Vera (Truth) becomes Verante (Truthful/Trustworthy)

When noun ends in Consonent-----> Addition of 'ante'-----> Sunit (Heat) becomes Sunitante (Hot)

3. Creation of Adverbs from Adjectives

Since all adjectives end in 'te' (see above), the 'e' is simply substituted for an 'a':

Verante (Truthful) becomes Veranta (Truthfully) etc.

4. Sentence Structure

Similar to english construction

'I speak nothing but the truth'

I speak- Fari

Nothing- Sinen

But- Da

The- Ey

Truth- Vera

'Fari sinen da ey vera'

5. Formation of Verb Practitioner

Infinitive reduced to last consonent-----> Balara (To Dance)= Balar

For males, 'endo' is added

For females, 'enda' is added

Balarenda- The Female Dancer

6. Formation of -ing

Infinitive verb reduced to last consonent------> Balara (To Dance)= Balar

'ande' is added

Balarande= Dancing

7. Creation of 'Places'

Involves usage of  'Alum' (Place) and a subject (a noun or adjective)

Place is reduced to 'um'

In cases of consonent subjective endings ('Castel'- Safety) last consonent is doubled (Castel=Castell)

Um is then added- Castellum ('Place of Safety')

In cases of vowel subjective endings ('Vera'- Truth) last vowel is removed (Vera=Ver)

Um is then added- Verum ('Place of Truth'- Courthouse)

8. Creation of Foreign Languages Procedure

Involves usage of 'Estica' (Language) and a subjective (Tribe name usually)

Estica is usually reduced to 'ica'

Ica is added to subjective- 'Tsohaminica'- 'Language of the Tsohamin'

Vowels are neglected- 'Tarshiinitica'- 'Language of Tarshiinites'

Also used to refer to ways of talking 'Bulantica'- 'Dirty Language' (refers to swear words, curses etc.)

9. Common Phrases- More to Come

Ti Cupiari- I love you

Ti Detiari- I hate you!

Ka Pasiaras?- What's happening?

Ero bena?- You are well?

Ka eras ey insuta?- What is the problem?

Hengaris o tresaro?- We have a deal?

(Faras) acanta!- (Speak) Louder!

Moranta!- Quieten!

Koma kravaro?- How many do you want?

Ken ero?- Who are you?

Faron sob...- Tell me about...

Sin Trabaras- It is not sold/It doesnt exist

Kon adularo balaron?- Would you like to dance with me?

10. 'To Me'

In order to construe a personal imperative (eg. Talk to me, Dance with me etc.) you take the changed infinitive:

Balara (To dance)----> Balar

And you add an 'on'

Balaron= Dance with Me

Faron= Talk to me

Could you change that anyhow, as one language (gnomic) is already based on latinate roots?   I love the look of the other words, which have a vaguely spanish/basque appearance, probably due to the a endings, but the 'castelum' is a bit too obvious....

My suggestion; remove Castel, and change Castelum into Castalum, which now translates into protected, or safe place.

Just one quick thing I noticed at the beginning, I'll look over more thoroughly later.

You give ka "what" and ken "who." You then give pa ken as "why," literally meaning "for what?"

Shouldn't it rather be pa ka
