The official language of the People's Republic of Syoranka



Technically a purely varkanic language, with many loanwords (most loanwords are of Middle Terminian origin, via Piringian Creole).
It is an inworld constructed language based on a mix of all languages spoken in modern-day Syoranka, with relatively heavy influence from Literary Piringish, the old official language of the Insular Kingdom of Piringia essentially glorified slang tbh
Some aspects pf the grammar are inspired by recontructions of Proto-Varkanic, so as to not prioritise one specific language as a base.
The script is based urely on the Varkanic scripts used in Syoranka — therefore excluding Berkene and Piringish Creole Letso-Terminian because all praise Hosha


yes the script is literally extended latin not a font but that's bc I'm too lazy to actually copy-paste the shapes into a font, as I don't really need to rn but I will at some point...
Sample of Syorankan[view] Vayaho piqa to zēna hēlmyaku do se saikaran Kuūlikanu. At emsin sāki a leo wa lyaga min ats alau hanyō. Ala sāki wa lāmka tos almāna. / Emsīn u han yāz, ta thanū!

Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. / Workingmen of all countries unite!
