Hmmm... currently wondering what the Taenrhim of Nybelmar would develop as their tongue. Did all Elves start out with Styrásh(I will go for that 'cause I don't have the nerve for developing a language)?
Nevertheless after 2000 years or so the language should have considerably changed so I wondered if anyone has any ideas in what ways?

Just thought this an interesting topic...

Greybark talked about a language builder program that will convert languages in an earlier thread.

Yep but Styrash is far from complete, I am trying to use it for Ylffer, but having a hard time of it.

Yeah I'd say so Koldar. The Axhai wrote the Carpasodia in the eldest days according to myth. Styrash was their language. If this had even a little truth then all elven languages would be a mutated form of Styrash. In Ylffer I have gone for devolution so to speak.

In English languages of Indo-European languages (celtic root) were either mutated or superseeded first by laungages of a Latin root, and then by languages from a Norse or Germanic root, then this by French pronounciation as the Normans invaded.

As Styrash is sounds in speech rather like French, I took my language back to a more Old English/Welsh pronounciation. More gutteral, but preserves that song like effect that styrash has. This is also influence by the ratios in which letters are used. To achive this I have calculated that the freuquency of the letters L, y and C must be higher in Ylffer than in styrash. I also pinched the idea of tonal speech from various Chinese dialects, that a words meaning is influenced by tone.

You might want to take your form of Styrash in the other direction, make it softer and even more fluid than normal Styrash, (think Spanish, even Italian to an extent) by increasing proportions of soft sounds. Think about the way they speak, their accent I guess. For example, Yllferhim elves cannot pronounce th, it comes out da, de or du thus:

thróg = deróg in Ylffer
thyrón = Dairon

Any help?
