Species Human/humanoid
About Zelconian Zelconian is one of the four languages spoken on the planet Illacus.
Many of the words have no exact translation to English, so make sure to check the notes.

Some grammers are much different, such as this sentence, "We talked on our way to the store", would be in Zelconian grammer, "To store we talked".
Punctuation goes first in the sentence and must be said, except if it's an incomplete sentence like, "Red and Blue", "What?", or "On Tuesday".

Modal verbs (like, want, can) are like this -> "I want: I eat food" "You want: she goes away"

[view] Duormehkean Zel (Duormehian Zelconian)Spoken in the tiny yet powerful country of Duormeh, this dialect features diphthongs normally separated by glottal stops. The short and long e sounds "eh-ee", would normally be pronounced like that, but in Duormehkean Zel they become the sound "A". The "ah-ee" sounds becomes "ai" or "I".
