Thank you very much. I'll do my best when it comes to translating (The translations that I make probably wont be very well done) but I will definitely use these on the RP side. Thanks again.

What is general dwarven etiquette? For example how does a dwarf greet its elders? What is a respectful distance? How would you greet a brother? How would you greet someone below you in status? How much a role does social status play in Thergerim culture?

I was rather angry in typing this so most people please feel free to just skip to the last lines which is where the real point is.

I'm starting to feel rude, and I'm terribly sorry. However, allow me to communicate my point more clearly and with a bit more spine. Please don't look at this as a needy character but as a significant gap in the language you have developed.

You may not have a dictionary in your back pocket but there is one readily accessible on the site unless I'm mistaken. Anyone may look up any phrase in case they are unable to identify the meaning from the context it is in.

If I was to talk of my characters usage of any said phrase it would be in Thergerim and the rest of the speech in Tharian. However I am instead going to focus on the lack of these practical words which are being over shadowed with how to say Star Trek an talk about rifts in this language. I have no problems with your pursuit of these but to have them over shadow the more necessary ones is frustrating to say the least.

I don't develop languages nor would I be any good at it so I leave it to you to fill in these gaps and come up with the proper words and phrases.

My question is what are dwarven greetings and farewells?
My suggestions: Urtdon - with a short o -Hello -derived from urt den or good day
-or-
Thelon neen alv - May your beard grow long

I'm sorry to keep bringing this up but as a character that speaks Thergerim I would like to know what greetings Santhos would use. I suggested one but never got a response. Could a little more attention be devoted in that direction?

Just one quick bounce back. I understand that I am new to this so forgive me if I'm still doing badly at this but there are dwarves who live above ground and couldn't it be that dwarves such as the Kavoninn Yabarrah would live by night and day and need phrases that would work with others who also lived in such a way hereby making Urtdon a possible phrase of greeting even if just for those who dwell above the ground?

If not maybe something along the lines of Thelon neen alv - May your beard grow long (though I could not fin the words for may or your.)

just one but a practical one
Urtdon - with a short o -Hello -derived from urt den or good day
7  Santharian World Development / Languages and Runes / Dwarven Hello? on: 26 July 2008, 01:30:24
How would you say Hello or greetings or something like that in Thergerim? I know Urt den but thats it.

Again I'm confused.
I'm not a big music person, but I thought that this would be a good idea, what's a double reed? I can picture an oboe and are you talking about the reed at the top? I appollogize if I'm rediculously ignorant but could you explain that please? It sounds good even if I don't know what it is.

Right so

Overview
The Pan Flute is a simple elven wind instrument consisting of 8 hollow reeds cut to different lengths to produce a change in sound or pitch. Its a common instrument used by travelers and commoners alike because of its size and simplicity.

Description
8 hollow wooden reeds tied together in a straight line going from largest to smallest with the one side of lining up evenly.

Production
While the Pan Flute can be purchased in most music shops, it can also be made by oneself quite easily. Simply hollow out a narrow reed and cut into 8 different lengths or obtain 8 thin metal tubes already cut to the right lengths. Connect the tubes with paste on each side and strap the tubes together to hold it in place with the largest tube on the left and the smallest on the right.

Playing
To play the Pan Flute simply put the even side to your mouth and blow into the desired reed to produce a clear whistlelike note. To cange note simply slide the Pan Flute to the side until you reach the reed you desire.

Usage
The Pan Flute can be played at occasions of all sorts, as it can produce slow melacholy tones and also joyous quick music, but it is not often used as it is a quiet instrument normally it will be used to pass the time or to play for just one other person to hear.

Great but how should I start? With a name? With precisly what notes it plays? I don't know where to start at all. This is my first project as you can tell.
11  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Re: Pan Flute on: 18 July 2008, 04:04:08
So something similar exists under a different name got it. What should I do then? Scatch the whole idea, or keep working on this one?

Thank you for your help and your suggestions its greatly appreciated. I'm probably confusing people with the two Pan flute things I'm sorry if I'm not supposed to have two things of the same title on two pages.

My idea is a Pan Flute, not necessarily with that name but, the Pan Flute consists of about 8 hollow reeds cut to different sizes and tied together so that one side the reeds line up. It's played like a harmonica where you slide it along your lips blowing into each reed to produce a clear whistle like note higher notes for the smaller reeds and lower notes for the bigger ones.

It was invented by the romans or by some peoples of that time period and called a Pan flute for the God Pan.
What that God did I don't know just yet but I would like to have something like this in Santharia.

Where and with what icon would I post an idea for an instrument?
