About Ulmaak
Ulmaak is the main language of Ulmykh, a rather inhospitable planet in which a bunch of unpleasant, tall, and old race live. It is an old language - over 10 000 generations old [100 000 000 years]. Although this is a long time, Ulmykh people live for longer and take longer to develop as a nation.

[view] Ulmaak (Ancient Ulmaak)This dialect has a much richer grammar, i and y are merged, and unlike Modern Ulmaak Dialects, have not been artificially changed; approximatley 600 000 000 years ago, the government acknowledged that Ulmaak was too hard for outsiders to learn or even understand, so it was changed to have easier pronunciations and easier and more regular grammar. The vocabulary stayed the same. Example of change: ULM => qady ULM-PRE => qidy
[view] Ulmaaqenarettaam (Northern Dialectal Ulmaak)This dialect uses more archaic language whilst has a tendancy to use more vulgar and slang speech in everyday language. This also, depending on how formal you are being, merges to sentence-words connected by an and (y). The formality makes words longer as it shows, to Northen Ulmaak Dialect Cluster (NUDC) speakers, that you are interlectually advanced enough to process and spell these correctly.
[view] Ulmaakam (Standard Ulmaak)This is the standard form of Ulmaak which is a mix of over 600 cultural dialects and languages in the Ynna, Ter, and Fyyi language families.
[view] Ulmaaqataletanaam (Tanamic Ulmaak)Apart from several vocabulary changes - most from Tanamm, metaphor is used. For example, one may use the phrase 'Juliet on the balcony' to explain two people falling in love. Speech is done this way as the Tanaam brains work differently to other species.
[view] Ulmaakazamqanu (Tribal Ulmaak)This dialects main difference is connecting conditional sentences two different parts together with (a)m(a). This would make 'maapufakaqan maapuffupakaqanaykenajizgi', which already has quite lengthy words, into 'maapufakaqanamamaapuffupakaqanaykenajizgi'. They also get rid of double vowels, leaving the correct pronounciation up to interpretetion. This then causes four subdialects, Ulmaakazamqanu A, Ulmaakazamqanu B, Ulmaakazamqanu C, and Ulmaakazamqanu D.
