Dragon Lingua #1: Hynnodii
(full alphabet at: http://conlang.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_%28Hynnody%29 )
DRAGON’S LANGUAGE (Learn it):
In this lesson you will learn basic Hynnodii. Full Hynnody letters can be shortened to the first two letters. Love would become Raweunmy (Ra-We-Un-MY) instead of Raweryundmy (RA-wery-UND-MY). The pronunciation of words can change when shortening words in combinations, but makes sentences shorter and easier to manage. Here is an alphabet for Latin speakers:
UNIVERSAL WORDS (can be used in place of certain verbs or replace words):
TENSE WORDS (come at the end of sentences or words):
Past: bir (for males), va (for females) (for translating words like helped, told and cried)
Present: ust (for males), Mye (for females) (for words like will, did and could)
Future: mie (for males), het (for females)
Sadness: Hyin (for males), Kan (for females)
Example for usage: why did you break it? I did so much to make it for you! (insert sad placement word)
Happiness: wit (for males), kaa (for females)
Example sentence for usage: You did it! I can’t believe you did it! (insert happy placement word)
FOR EXPRESSING EMPHASIS:
It is important: trtraast
It is insignificant: empry
Jue-se savgumy syweso trtraast!
I hate you!
Jue-se savgumy syweso empry!
I hate you.
When used with empry in a non-serious situation, the sentence can be interpreted as sarcasm.
Hynnody letters are shortened when talking about oneself or another living thing.
Yourself: I, me, my
Words: jue-se (I), fo (Me. Shortened version of “forte”), fa (My. Derivative of Forte)
Male: him, his, my
Words: c’yet sajufo (C’yet denotes male, sajufo is “him,’ and a shortened version of saajueforte), c’yet lui (c’yet denotes male, Lui is another term for “his” without using the Hynnody letters), c’yet fosye (c’yet denotes male, fosye is “my”)
Females: her, she
Words: c’ya samyvo (SA-my-VOS) (c’ya denotes female, samyvo is shortened version of saamyvos), c’ya misamy (MI-sa-MY) (c’ya denotes female, misamy is a shortened version of Misaamy)
Denotes you are doing something: Zyri
I am jumping around!
Ju-se vifo zyri krsofoto ar’ao vivowesopais!
The word to denote action comes before the action word. Zyri comes before “jumping” so you’ll know it’s an action word. Xink and we’el are replacements for Zyri.
ING WORDS/ PRESENT PARTICIPLE: Words that use ing (present participle) have ar’ao placed at the end. Example: Ju-se vifo zyri krsofoto ar’ao vivowesopais! krusofoto means “jump” and ar’ao denotes the ing/present participle.
