i am posting this so that others, if for some reason they need to say something in Sor'inytian :   , they can look up words and put it all together in some correct fashion. also might help if someone would like to see how i translated the two sagas "the or'ia" and "the saga and choas of the twins".


The Sor’inytian language is said by some to be “general and overly basic”. While this may be- it suites their needs and successfully divides the tribe further from the surrounding communities. Within the spoken language, there are many similar loud vowel sounds and swallowed consonants. This combination makes it hard for a stranger, who might only have a basic knowledge of Sor’inytian, to follow the speech patterns -as sometimes only a slight hint of a consonant makes all the difference.

NOTE: all lists of miscellaneous nouns, verbs, colors, adjectives, etc are in progress works.

  Basic Pronouns

I = ki
You [familiar/singular] = na
She [familiar] = pai
Us/We = na’roo
You/She [Plural/Formal] = popai
[note: “popai” is similar in meaning to the French “vous”.]
They = doa
It = lac
Her = pet
He = lopei
Him/His = lope
[note: Because of the unstable role of men in the tribe- these last two forms are interchangeable. It is common for a Sor’inyt to use “lopei” for “him” or “his” and “lope” for “he”.]

  Basic Verb Conjugation

[Note: “ta’od” is the verb “to be”.]

There are two sets of verb endings, which allow for distinction of rank etc when the language is spoken. “a” is added to the end of the verb if the subject is “familiar/singular” and “i” is added to the end of the verb if the subject is “formal/plural”.

For Example:
In Tharian one would say: “I am.” While in Sor’inytian one would say: “ki ta’oda.”

Present “ta’od” Conjugation
Ki ta’oda
Na ta’oda
Pai ta’oda
Na’roo ta’odi
Popai ta’odi
Doa Ta’odi
Lope ta’oda

To make a statement in the past, an “a” is placed before the verb.

For Example:
In Tharian one would say: “I was.” The Sor’inytian equivalent is “ki a ta’oda.”

Note that the verb endings are still present.

Past “ta’od” Conjugation
Ki a ta’oda
Na a ta’oda
Pai a ta’oda
Na’roo a ta’odi
Popai a ta’odi
Doa a Ta’odi
Lope a ta’oda

To make a statement about the future, an “o”, similar to the “a” in the past form, is placed before the verb.

For Example:
In Tharian one would say: “I will be.” The Sor’inytian equivalent is “ki o ta’oda.”

Note that the verb endings are still present.

Future “ta’od” Conjugation
Ki o ta’oda
Na o ta’oda
Pai o ta’oda
Na’roo o ta’odi
Popai o ta’odi
Doa o Ta’odi
Lope o ta’oda

To make a statement negative, an “n” (or a “ne” in the present case) is placed before the verb and/or the preceding tense indicator.

For Example:
In Tharian one would say: “I am not.” The Sor’inytian equivalent is “ki ne ta’oda.”
In Tharian one would say: “I never was” or “I was not.” The Sor’inytian equivalent is “ki na ta’oda.”
In Tharian one would say: “I will not be.” The Sor’inytian equivalent is “ki no ta’oda.”

Note again that the verb endings are still present. Note also that “n/ne” stands for ALL extremes of the negative connotation. It can be never, not, no, etc...

Negative “ta’od” Conjugations
Ki ne ta’oda
Na ne ta’oda
Pai ne ta’oda
Na’roo ne ta’odi
Popai ne ta’odi
Doa ne Ta’odi
Lope ne ta’oda

Ki na ta’oda
Na na ta’oda
Pai na ta’oda
Na’roo na ta’odi
Popai na ta’odi
Doa na Ta’odi
Lope na ta’oda

Ki no ta’oda
Na no ta’oda
Pai no ta’oda
Na’roo no ta’odi
Popai no ta’odi
Doa no Ta’odi
Lope no ta’oda

Oh dear... lots of stuff here... *grin* Hmmm... Not sure now how I should put that all on the site in an entry, cause I don't want to do 52 pages of vocabulary currently. Well, I'll put it on my do-when-I-have-a-bit-more-time list. But good to see that you think on all the details, Anaea! Nice work:)

Really nice sounding language, Anea!

Very organized too. I like how you used the infinitive forms of verbs in your list....it looks better. I'm going to change my own list now (when I have time) in  this way.

*Jaw drops open stupidly, walks away shaking head, muttering to himself.*  Now there is another genius in this land. "Why can't I do something like that?" Answer, "Because you are not a genius,like her and Bard Judith that's why. Face it. You are just an average old guy, trying to compete with people who are much smarter than you."

"Yes, that may be true, but at least I have more gray hair."

Great job, Anaea. It blows my mind away, and makes me proud that you are part of the team. Also makes me wonder why I am? but that is for another time and place.
