I've been making a niche langue using the original name syllables. 

It's still a work in progress.

Verbs are in all caps (VAN), nouns are capitalized (Van), adjectives are not capitalized (van). 

Each syllable is a group of words. 

Van = Sense

  • Verbs = Look (VAN) /Search for (VAN) /Listen (VAN) /Smell (VAN)
  • Nouns = Lookout (Van) /Observer (Van) /Listener (Van) /
  • Adjectives = Bright or Clear (van) High (van) /Visible (van) /Cluster (van)

Ro = Movement

  • Verbs = Run (RO) /
  • Nouns = Runner (Ro) /Messenger (Ro) /Diplomat (Ro) /
  • Adjectives = Fast (ro) /Nimble (ro) /Graceful (ro) /Fluent (ro)

Duk = Pattern

  • Verbs = Repeat /Rise and Fall / /
  • Nouns = Sun /Moon /Star /Memory
  • Adjectives = Repetitive /Similar /Elusive /

Kir = Growth

  • Verbs = Grow or spread / / /
  • Nouns = Child (Kir) /Seed /Root or berry /Stem
  • Adjectives = New (kir) / /Living /

Ta = Gather

  • Verbs = Collect /Take or Receive /Bring or Carry/Retain 
  • Nouns = Gatherer /Commoner / /
  • Adjectives = Common /Useful /Easy /Simple

Nu = Shelter

  • Verbs = Hide (NU) /Cover (NU) /Sleep (NU) /Quiet (NU)
  • Nouns = 
  • Adjectives = Hidden (nu) / home (nu) /Fur or Pelt /

Ku = Excess

  • Verbs = Explode or burst / / /
  • Nouns = Food (Ku)/Luxury
  • Adjectives = Too much (ku), big or great or grand (ku)

-

Ra = Strength

  • Verbs = Hunt/Kill or Break /Murder /Injure
  • Nouns = Hunter /Fighter / /
  • Adjectives = Flame-Coloured (ra) / / /

Is = Elder

  • Verbs:
  • Nouns: 
  • Adjectives:

La = Spirit

  • Verbs = Remember /Respect / /
  • Nouns = Self (La) /Other (La) / You (La) /Anyother or eachother
  • Adjectives = Belonging /Personality or Type /Mindset or state of being /

Ko = Think

  • Verbs = Think/Reason/Expect/Host
  • Nouns = Philosoper / /Inventor /
  • Adjectives = Gifted /Strange / /

Me = Calm

  • Verbs = Calm Down (ME) /Relax /Stop or do the opposite of /Change 
  • Nouns = / / / /
  • Adjectives = Calm (me) /Enough (me)/ Not enough (me) /

Ana = Provide

  • Verbs = Give (ANA) /Provide on a routine basis /Inherit /Skill
  • Nouns = Parent (Ana) / / /
  • Adjectives = Generous (ana) / / /

Re = Survival

  • Verbs = Live on /Take care of ___ / /
  • Nouns = / / /
  • Adjectives = Dangerous (re) / / /

Si = About

  • Verbs = One/Two/Three/Four etc
  • Nouns =  To (Si) /From (Si) /Plural (Si) /How (Si)
  • Adjectives = More/Less/Many/Few

In this language, numbers count as verbs. 

 

This is still a work in progress. 

Also, there has to be a  hyphen between male and female syllables. Also to separate words that are 4 syllables or longer. That is just in case there could be a bad word. 

Combination Words/Other:

Grandparent: IsAna

Great grandparent: IsAna-ku

Tree: Nukir or Nukirku

Oak Tree: Nukirta or Nukirta-ku

Palm Tree: Kirta-re

Night: Dukkirnu-me

Day: Dukvan-rera

Ocean: La-ku

River: La-ro

Tribe: Rela-nu

Bearyena: Rare

Ape: Rarere

Leader/Alpha: Isra or israana or Raana

Future: NuKir

Present: Nu-Re

Past: Nu-Is

KirKir = Grandchild

Kirkukir = Great grandchild

RA-TAKir = Rabbil

TAKir = Rabbil or sometimes wanderer

RAANA-TAkir = Rabbil Den

RA-TAKirnu = Rabbil Den

 

LaRESi = How are you
La-Reaname or just Reme = I'm fine/providing enough for my survival
SI Dukvan-rera Nu-Is = yesterday
SI Nu-Is = also works as yesterday (1 ago)
SI Ne-Re = works as tomorrow (1 ahead/next)
 

 

How it sounds:

(This isn't very important) 

Verbs are lengthened, nouns are trilled and adjectives are crisp.

Bold words are stuttered (in a nice way) and italic words swoop up (like their a question). Underlined words are echoed (like the opposite of the bold words).

Hyphens/Spaces get an almost *click* sound, although spaces between words are ignored.

Examples:

Kir! VAN-si Si IsAnaLa-Si." (Child! Listen more to your grandparents) Sounds like:

Kir(trill)! VAAAAN(swoop up)*click*si Si(trill) La(trill, swoop up)Is(trill)Ana(trill)."

The trills and stutters and echoes aren't very noticeable, and can be safely ignored. The language is loose enough that most nichelings will understand what someone is saying even if they don't use any of the proper pronunciation.

Grammer:

(making this up as I go so it make conflict)

(This is also somewhat loose and unnecessary although good to know)

Words:
Verb --> Noun --> Adjective
Normal --> Bold --> Italic --> Underlined
More Relevant --> Less relevant

Exceptions:

When it is the same word, for example: RereRa is spelled like that because the syllable repeats. 
La- also comes first

If it sounds better to say it one way (IsAna vs AnaIs) normally the better sounding form is used even if the start is less relevant.

Tense:
If no tense is speicfied, then it is present tense

If either Nu-kir or Nu-is are given, that tense is used for the sentence. 

Example:
Nu-is Si Dukvan-rera (three days ago)


Sentence: 
Verb still comes first so:

RO Rare *LaRela-nu* (Run bearyena my tribe)

Whoever does the action gets the fancy stars, these are pronounced with a sharp trill/whistle. (If there is a hyphen and the first part of the word is La- then the La- doesn't get the stars)

The 'whom' comes after the verb, although whatever action it preforms is after the *who*.

Examples:

RO Rare *LaRela-nu* RALa (Run my tribe there's a bearyena and it will kill you)

NU Isra La-*Kir* NU  (be quiet my child, the tribe leader is sleeping)
