Writing in Gotevian.
Apr. 26th, 2005 @ 03:42 am
This is a piece of writing translated from Gotevian, a language I am in the later processes of inventing.
Nevermind the crappy prose-thing itself. ;)
Laled ma thré m’eiseuvdanol lar.
Here is the spring of the year.
Ninlainel tyi irnea vanolin sar.
Grief and tears are gone.
Ilomed arlanol carthel wavolin lar.
Darkness is turned to light of morning.
Placum dlau maethed igeithed meineb semé iarthedénari,
Throw off that stale thought from yesterday,
Layzwélá ma ielaneb neára soilúnnom aganocaga.
Where fear of doubt haunted the future,
Tyi dlau blunebea teinedea
And down your cheeks
Irnea cólo ma iaranari beth venirais hailinocaga.
Tears like blood from the past fell.
Doä laleanum caln télo m’alio
But come now into the sun
Laled e’fenya ilomom lar—
Here is a glade of light—
Tyi ger e’bryed anosom nyoromcé suseta dhat.
And under a tree of silver and gold you may sit.
I envy you. I've been trying to write my own language, for use in my story, but nothing is coming to me.
Do you have any references, preferably Internet, for language constructing?
The best thing if you are beginning to look into creating a well-rounded tongue is this page: The Language Construction Kit
A LiveJournal community on the subject is conlangs
and if you are going further into the art of world-building and alphabet rendering, worldbuilding
I hope this helps. If you have any actual specific questions--well, I could attempt to answer. :)
You're great, thanks.
The Language Construction Kit seems to already be my best source, and I'll definately give the communities a try.
If I need more help, I'll be sure to turn to you.
That's really pretty. I wish I had the patience to invent my own language. And the prose isn't too bad, either.
Thanks. To the prose I gave next to no thought. I think someday I want to make a series of good poems in Gotevian; but I'm no good at translating the crazy little subtlties of the language into English.
