About Loutaira The area that would form the language of Loutaira is on the south-east shore of the dśÒmòŋ Sea. The area had long been inhabited by fractured tribes and kingdoms, until the Cascian Empire came from the southern plains and subdued the tribes. After years of prolonged conflict, the kingdoms unified to resist the Empire, but it only lasted for twenty years before they too were annexed. The Cascian Empire was eventually forced out after 180 years, and the Kingdom of wOrl formed from the unified kingdoms and tribes, with it's official language of Loutaria. The Loutairan language was formed by merging the three major native languages already present in the Kingdom, beginning the process of creating a unified wOrlish culture.

    Syllable Structure(C)(C)V(C)(C)
    This means that words like [MHèiRN] (capitalization only to emphasize point) are possible, with two consonants at the start and end, however between vowels only three consonants are allowed, so words like [koRPKaik] are allowed but if it was [koRPKLaik] it would be illegal because of there being four consonants in a row. So mid word it the structure would be V(C)(C)(C)V. An example of a legal word is (C)(C)V(C)(C)(C)V(C)(C), but this is not the only allowed structure.

    If mid word, syllables are halved, meaning [h́ampa] would be h́am-pa, but if the number of consonants is odd, they split left, so [korpkaik] is korp-ka-ik
    Stress informationStress is never marked, and is always placed on the first syllable. In single words that include spaces, like [an h́ālas], stress is still on the first syllable [an] and the rest of the word is unstressed.
    OtherApostrophes are in numerals to distinguish between different numbers, like [a haon] (7) and [a' haon] (259), but does not make a sound. Instead you lengthen the pause between [a] and [haon], represented in IPA by |, like you do with a comma.
