Conlang

Finished on 2024 june 20th 20:48 CEST.

This language is based on samaka (so technically this is a Samasido/Samakido) in response to "Niini". (i'm not letting u win haha)

The first name of this conlang was originally exactly what the title is, but it is now just "Awaw" which means: working language/speech

Phonology[]

There are three sounds; a, k and w (There are technically four, if we count the long a, but it is relatively rarely needed). The apostrophes represent a small break. Also, to separate words, just put a K.

Therefore, the alphabet would be: a (ā), k, w

a k w
/a/ /k/ /w/
/æ/ /g/ /v/

Grammar rules[]

  • ALWAYS SVO word order
  • fuse multiple words together in order to express more complex thoughts.

wāwa from wa+aw+a = nonexistent working layer (lit. no job layer)

Whenever you see an two vowels next to eachother, they are to be pronounced as one long vowel. "aa" turns into ā, or just remains "aa".

If there are 3 vowels, the first vowel remains short, while the other two blend together and form a long one. (eg. aaa --> aā) (Follow this analogy for 4, 5, or even 10 neighboring vowels.)

The double w-s are to be pronounced as a regular w with extra stress on it.

  • There are:
    • no gender
    • no cases
    • no pre- or suffixes
    • no tones
  • How numbers work: To form numbers, add as much "a"-s next to eachother until their amount adds up to the number you want to express. (if you want to say zero, just use "wa"). For multiple digits, remember to put dashes. they are to be pronounced as "kw" example: 2024 = ā(kw)wa(kw)ā(kw)āā
  • How to say dates: Instead of saying dates like: january 9th 2050, one should convert it to numbers. (2050/1/9) NOTE: AWAW USES THE YYYY/MM/DD FORMAT. This way, we can just simply use the same method that we use when expressing regular numbers: january 9th 2050 = ā-wa-āāa-wa (break) a (break) āāāāa
  • Loanwords, proper nouns and names don't need phonetical converting.

Writing system[]

So there is also a WS for this language. it's basically just numbers.

if you want to write regular numbers, always remember to put a ["] before the first and after the last number.

a ā (optional) w k kw
1 11 2 3 4
