About Vallessa Vallessa, more correctly typed as vaLeSa, is a language constructed by the royalty of Adestor in order to provide a somewhat unifying language for the people, who speak a variety of languages. Despite that, it does not share very many similarities with the other languages spoken in the world, and is instead designed to hopefully be simpler than those already existing, though whether or not it succeeds is a matter of some debate.

Stress informationMost emphasis in Vallessa is on the first half of each syllable. So valesa would be pronounced vah-leh-sah. Stress can be altered, however, with the use of underlined letters (typed as capital letters, represented in Romanization as double letters). This transfers the emphasis to the underlined letter, of which there are ONLY the consonants f, k, l, m, n, s, t, and v. Therefore, vallessa is pronounced vahl-les-sah (which is why it's represented by double letters). Another example: afani would be pronounced ah-fah-ni, affanni would be ahf-fahn-ni, though if you try it, affanni is actually more difficult to pronounce, and does not exist, while the words afani and affani do and are two separate words.
