Sorry to intrude on such holy ground but for my CD I was hoping to create a sword with the words "Sword of Justice" or something similar engraved within the temper line area.

I found the word cár'scál which is translated sword and rofú interpreted as just.

this is for a paladin of Armeros and I thought it might be appropriate.

Looking at tense it could be either past or present.

Perhaps a phrase such as he that brings justice might be good as well.

Thank you for your assistance.

I doubt that "rofú" means "just" as in "justice".  That would be an adjective instead of an adverb, I think.  But if it does mean that, "rófu'scál" would probably work.

Thank you so much!
I am simply going off of what was stated in the Styrash dictionary. It states:


Quote
just      adverb      rofú      rofú

Perhaps I am mistaken but i truly appreciate your help.

I know.  But the word "just" has two very different sets of meanings, one of which is an adjective and the other, an adverb.  The former is what you are looking for, but the one listed in the Styrash dictionary seems to be the latter.

I apologize.

It would be correct to say that what I would need would be incorrect.

I will remove the wording completely and just have in engraved in Tharian

sorry for the inconvenience. sorry

Suggestions for vocabulary: (Sorry if there is already a post for this...)

A list of suffixes and prefixes, preferably neuter in gender (does Styrash have a neuter form??)  Examples could include the Styrash equivalents for
(prefix) un-, anti-, im-, over-, under-, non-, pro-, con-. ante-, counter-, pro-, dis-, semi-, sub-, ultra-, etc, etc

(suffix) -ism, -ist, -holic, -less, -ology/-onomy, -phobia, -philia, etc, etc.

This would greatly increase the number of words that could be contained in the database, through combination and substitution.

I am not quite sure how this thread is being run or how the languages are being developed, but I would love to help out.  How would I go about constructing said suffixes/prefixes in the elvish language?? (ie, where can I get the knowledge necessary to do so correctly...)
 
Edit: Is this thread still active??  Seems to have been quite some time since anyone besides me posted...

Work on Styrásh comes in fits and starts, I've found. Also, conlanging takes a lot of work, and since Art has the whole of Santharia to deal with, he doesn't really have the time to devote to Styrásh.

If you're going to discuss word formation, it's more useful to talk about general categories rather than individual affixes, viz.

  • deverbal nouns
  • deadjectival nouns
  • denominal adjectives
  • deverbal adjectives
  • denominal verbs
  • deadjectival verbs

In addition, there can also be nouns from nouns (e.g. agent nouns), adjectives from adjectives (e.g. diminutives), and verbs from verbs (e.g. iteratives); and compounding (e.g. endocentric compounds; bahuvrihis etc.).

New double-entendre (sort of)...

godán (f.) "enemy, opponent, adversary"

...e.g. Styrát godán iuá nó. — "He is my enemy." (lit. "Is enemy my he.")

godán (v.tr.) "oppose, stand against"

...e.g. Godá ianthím delís phoilanhé ér-dél'aeyá Ximaxís. — "I oppose the method of magic conceived by the Ximaxian mages." (lit. "I-oppose method of-magic made by-mages of-Ximax.")

New noun which I was surprised to find we were missing...

methór (m.) "name (title?)"

...e.g. Styrát Quaélh'Orín methór iuá. — "My name is Quaélh'Orín." (lit. "It-is Quaélh'Orín name my.")

Which could have been derived from...

methorán (v.tr.) "to name (to bestow a title?)"

...e.g. Methorantá queím Épthaer'Avashín. — "I shall name you Épthaer'Avashín." (lit. "I-will-name you Épthaer'Avashín.")

I don't know if this is the right place to put this, but I've just found a website with loads of free Elvish fonts to download. You just need to have Winzip installed.

Just type "da font" into your browser.

As a trainee tattooist it'll be really handy for me, I get asked for "Lord of the rings writing" all the time, but could never find it before.

That's all. Carry on....

And if that doesn't work, try switching it off and back on again.

Our ingenius fellow dreamers have 2 styrash fonts ready made;

http://www.santharia.com/downloads/downloads_fonts.htm

Nice idea though Tharoc, I happen to have most of the LoTR fonts myself... Fun to use. ;)

Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind,
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Hi

Not sure if this is where I should post this but here it is.

I would appreciate some help with the correct spelling of the ranger I am working on

The name I am trying to create would mean Sorrowful soul and as you can see I have butchered the language severely.

Mina has been extremely helpful and suggested Glasajcín Cár'ámn  but she has suggested I ask on the Dev board.

I also was trying to create a title for my ranger something like Warrior of Sorrow

Mini also suggested it might be hélvil'glasajías, or maybe glásajias'helvíl.

If you could help me on this I would appreciate it.

Thanks.

"Sorrowful Soul," you say? Well, for this, we elves would say Cár'ámn Glasajcín.

And if you call yourself a Warrior of Sorrow, then amongst the elves you would be known as Raín Glasajís. It seems that kindly Mina confused helvíl, "wanderer," with raín, "warrior."  :)

Are these to your liking, friend?
