About Idenian
(keru'ku'ci de ha venu'ci wiro'fo ho'keru'cu ho'gemo.)
-keru'ku-ši de a benu-ši wiro'fo o-keru'šu o-gemo.-
Kerukuši de, a benuši Wirofo okerušu ogemo.
/ke̞ɾukuʃi de̞ a be̞nuʃi wiɾo̞ɸo̞ o̞ke̞ɾuʃu o̞ge̞mo̞/
"He spoke, and the world listened in deep silence."

Summary

(ro keru'ku), or Ro Keru'ku /ɾo̞ ke̞ɾuku/ is a language spoken universally across all races of man. As stated in the Book of New, it supposedly was a gift from god to allow mankind to willingly speak the "true word" and generate faith for the gods, thus giving humanity the ability to manipulate the forces of existence, notably mana (neca neša /ne̞ʃa/), and have them "bend to the will of the speaker". And so, humans were able to use magic (naso naso /naso̞/) for their own needs.

Idenian is a conlang created for the sole purpose of fully fleshing out the idea of magic in my fantasy writing. I wanted a meaningful, proper language that was spoken to cast magic spells. As such, Idenian isn't really made to be spoken in conversation, but instead, in monologue-type utterances.
