Zlavianski is a Slavic language slightly designed to take joking about communism to a whole new level, and it is also designed to be much simpler and easier to learn than the natural Slavic languages. It uses the Cyrillic alphabet, and gets its vocabulary off of the Slavic languages.

The writing system is 100% phonetic.

GrammarEdit

NounsEdit

Nouns conjugate according to case and number. To pluralize a noun, all you have to do is suffix "ий" if the word ends with a consonant, or "ний" if the word ends in a vowel.

Pre-Affixed Ending Conjugation
Ends in Consonant -ий
Ends in Vowel -ний

Nouns also conjugate by case. Cases are denoted by prefixes. There are 8 different cases, and all of which are included in Russian, but not vice versa. In the genitive case, the possessor gets conjugated and comes immediately after the object. In the partitive case, the part comes before the whole and the whole gets conjugated.

Case Prefix
Nominative ше-
Accusative vи-
Dative су-
Genitive те-
Locative во-
Comitative за-
Instrumental би-
Partitive гяд-

VerbsEdit

Verbs are conjugated only on their tense and aspect. The tense and aspect conjugations are combined into one syllable, but is still easy to memorize. The tense makes up the onset and the aspect makes up the nucleus and the coda.

Aspect \ Tense Infinitive (дз-) Preterite (в-) Present (с-) Future (жн-)
Simple (-ёр) -дзёр -вёр -сёр -жнёр
Perfect (-а) -дза -ва -са -жна
Continuous (-ет) -дзет -вет -сет -жнет
Inchoative (-од) -дзод -вод -сод -жнод

SyntaxEdit

Preferred word order: Subject-Verb-Object

Articles precede nouns

Adjectives follow nouns

Adverbs follow adjectives and verbs

(All verbs are transitive)

*Suffix -иск to make adjective

*Suffix -от to make verb

*Suffix -ели to make adverb

*Suffix -ер to verb to make "one who does something"
