About Lithian-0

[ranaдim]
Lithian, 2016-17 original | Ranathim


☆ For new developments of this language, check out  Lithian, the Rietic language of Lugida on Sahar.

Look here! It's Lithian explained in an infographic.
◆ Leiden's first developed conlang. First created in 2016 as a simplistic relex of references; it is now a fully flavored conlang with its love of simple phonemes and language aesthetics.
◆ SVO 'I eat bread', direct 'I am I', declensions scarce, conjugations rich. Also, what is 'plural'?
◆ Ø- (NOMNominative (case)
TRANS subject, INTR argument
=ACCAccusative (case)
TRANS direct object; patient
) | i- (GENGenitive (case)
possessive
) | da- (DATDative (case)
indirect object; recipient, beneficiary, location
) | ta- (LOCLocative (case)
'in, on, at' etc
) | ki- (TEMPTemporal (case)
specifying time (at one, on Monday, etc.)
) | ja- (INSTCInstrumental-comitative (case)
'with' (instrument and/or company)
)
◆ 'SUBJ is' phrases are done directly, the only 'to be' here is the creator's profile picture. "Guy nice" - "To be (this) best girl"
◆ 23 consonants + 5 vowels + 6 set diphthongs. Initially "Sanskrit" in aesthetic, but ended up into its own kind.
◆ Your beloved Delvia (article), an abjad/alphasyllabary script with universal glyph backbones (~ + everything else)

[view] Ranalugia (Lugid)Lithian as spoken in Sahar, mainly in Lugida and neighboring countries (basically just for word classification)
[view] Veita Litheserna (Veita)A variant of Lithian, for poets, by the poets, with more complexity and it's less English-y, with pretty much Lithian-y vocabulary. But, more complexity means less understandability, so Veita remained within the literature world, where it (kind-of) flourished. It is a conlang of a conlang.

This is an (old) experiment on the freedom of word orders.
