Phonology[edit | edit source]

Consonants[edit | edit source]

I'm not really familiar with the IPA stuff...so I'll just guess where these letters go on this chart thing.

The consonants are: n, p, ch, sh, k, t, y, l, m, h, w--all pronounced like in English

The vowels are: a, e, i, o, u--pronounced like in Sindarin, but the e is pronounced like in 'bed'

Phonotactics[edit | edit source]

Vowel clusters: ae, ai, ea, ia, ie, io, oa, ua, ue, uo. When vowels are clustered, never pronounce them as one sound; the sounds are always distinct. Ex: ae would not be pronounced as English 'hey', but as ah-eh. There are tiny glottal stops between vowels.

Consonants are almost always attached to a vowel. The sounds are na, ne, ni, no, nu, pa, pe, pi, cha, che, sha, she, shi, ka, ke, ki, ko, ku, ta, te, ti, to, tu, ya, ye, yo, yu, la, le, ma, me, mi, mo, mu, ha, he, hi, ho, hu, wa, we, wi, wo.

There are also a few cases where consonants cluster: shta, ly, kt, chni



Basic Grammar[edit | edit source]

Ajujan is "grammar-coded"--you can tell what part each words plays in a sentence from the particles (little words that don't mean anything).

SUBJECT--kte OBJECT--ke

To make a word plural in Ajujan, add -sh or -a to the end of the noun, depending on if the word ends in a vowel or not.

To show when the action takes place, the verb tense (time) is changed by putting these endings on the verb roots:

    Present tense: -a'ie
    Past Tense: -e
    Future Tense: -o

Birds caught insects: Kahash kte mate isha ke.

A bird is catching an insect: Kaha kte mata'ie ish ke.

In Ajujan, things have no gender. There is only one word for "the", no matter of the word is singular or plural, object or subject: Ne. There is no indefinite article in Ajujan.

Word order is flexible because of particles. So "Man catches fish" could be "Yashe kte mata'ie shta'e ke" "Shta'e ke mata'ie yashe kte" etc...

To change a word that infers a male to a word that infers a female, add -ena to the end of the word.

    boy-->girl        yake-->yakena
    father-->mother        yande-->yandena
    son-->daughter        yashe-->yashena
    brother-->sister        yame-->yamena

Numbers:

5-tae

6-kahe

7-duma

8-dume

9-ki

10-lo

11-loshi

20-yalo

21-yaloshi

100-sha

1000-she

once--shica

twice--yaca

thrice--toca


ni- prefixed to a word means "the opposite of". Ex: beautiful--omena---->ugly--ni'omena

shnie'elo (a separate word) makes the sentence negative--it didn't happen, it isn't happening, or it won't happen.

    mata'ie shnie'elo--isn't catching


PRONOUNS

I--ni we--nish

you--ia you (plural)--iash

he/she/it--ae they--yae

All conjugations of the verb "to be" are the same for all pronouns: a.

Ni a--I am

Nish a--we are

Ae a--he/she/it is

POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVES

my--niye our--nishe

your--iya'e

his/hers/its--ua'e their--uya'e


To make an adjective an adverb, add the suffix -ke.
