Altieric is the national dialect of the Altieri race. It is an ancient language that is primarily used by the Altieri of Aorcielus. It utilizes a glyphic alphabet system for communication when used literally.

The dialect is classified as an analytic-synthetic due to its hybrid-nature as an agglutinative, fusional and analytic all combined. It is one of the few dialects to exist in this category with as thymolinguistic like Hymmnolik, despite it bearing no link nor similarities to the mentioned, except with Ra'Cielic (Ari'Veciela), which is Altieric's predecessor dialect.

Overall Analysis of Dialect[edit | edit source]

The dialect is mainly synthetic, 40% being polysynthetic, 11% fusional, 29% agglutinative and 15% analytic while the remaining 25% is composed of thymolinguistic elements.

The thymolinguistic H-Wave class of this dialect is exactly the same as the H-Wave class of Ra'Cielic -- this means that although humans and non-Altieri are able to understand and speak Altieric phonology-wise with near absolute accuracy, they will never be able to understand nor replicate the emotions carried in the words and sounds that the Altieri are able to produce since their mental wavelengths are below Altieri H-Wave standards, meaning that only those above or with the exact same wavelength as the Altieri will be able to fully utilize the dialect.

History[edit | edit source]

Phonology[edit | edit source]

Due to the nature of the language's phonological structure and composition, it can be spoken by humans near-perfect.

Several vowels have allophones and phonemes:

There are 2 vowel classes in Altieric: Elegijia ("elegence") and Qalmasv ("rigidity"). Group /ʌ̞ ɛ ɪ ʊ ɔ ʏ/ are classified as the former while group /a e i u o y/ are the latter.

  • Qalmasv vowels occur following voiced consonants while Elegijia vowels follow voiceless consonants.

Commonly known features to occur are listed below.

  • Any consonant word-initial or preceded by <'>, when followed by (another) <'>, are pharyngealized ((ʔ)◌ˁ).
  • Applosive consonants usually occur when followed by another plosive. The only exception to this is when <p> is preceded by <q>: the former does not become applosive.
  • <l r w y> can be affected by the <(C)_(V)> segment, regardless of consonant clusters.
  • Elision occurs commonly in word final <h>, but has been reported to occur in mid-word <'>.
  • When preceded by a consonant and followed by a vowel, <l r> are retracted to <ḻ ɹ̱> by default.
  • Any semivowel sound such as /j/ for example will always affect the preceding consonant when followed by a vowel. /j/ is changed into /◌ʲ/ via <(C)y(V)> and /◌ʷ/ occurs from <(C)w(V)>. For example, ilyá ("go") is pronounced as /ilʲaː/, not /iljaː/.

Stress, although heavily prominent in Altieric, does not affect nor alter the phonological structure quo. However, it is characterised by a short lengthening of a vowel or subtle increase in vowel loudness.

Optative[edit | edit source]

The optative case, otherwise known as the request case, is a verbal mood used to state the speaker's request towards the speaker non-aggressively. In English, it would be indicated via "please" (at the beginning of a sentence) or "I want (you to...)".

In Altieric, its Altieric equivalent of "please" is optional and can be used to emphasize the urgency or emotion behind the request, as it is already indicated by the optative case.

"To be" Copula[edit | edit source]

An equivalent to "(to) be" or "is" in Altieric would be 'æ'. In Altieric, 'æ' is prefixed to the nominative noun, separated by a dash between; the noun following the copula-prefixed word would be interpreted as the end result or state of the word. Example:

æ-je Solumenthia.

(To be)-(I (Fem. I-POV Formal Sing. Nominative Pron.) (Targeted State/Result)

If one wished to say "My name is Solumenthia", they would have to say 'æ-le Solumenthia', not 'je æ Solumenthia', which is incorrect.

Nouns[edit | edit source]

Articles[edit | edit source]

Articles are optional in Altieric, and are rarely used in most cases except Divinetha.

Definite Indefinite
Singular e u
Plural y /(j)/ a

Genitive[edit | edit source]

Genitive case is indicated through several forms, the most recurrent being suffixation. The form depends mostly on the type of object or existence the 'owner' assumes, whether it is a sentient 'owner', a non-sentient 'owner' or a conceptual 'owner'.

Locative[edit | edit source]

Nominative[edit | edit source]

Altieric's nominative case relies on the usage of particles which are assigned to three classifications: Animate, Inanimate and Conceptual.

Animate Subjects are subjects that exist with sentience and will. It can be applied to living beings and fauna. Flora and plant life also fall into the category as they are organic in nature. In essence, anything organic and possessing a will and consciousness automatically falls into this nominative category.

Inanimate Subjects are subjects that are considered objects - existences with no will or sentience.

Pluralisation[edit | edit source]

Pluralisation in Altieric exists in the form of suffixes, and come in five forms; emphatic singular, singular, paucal, definite and indefinite. To indicate that the object is a sole object (singular), the noun is left unaltered.

Definite Pluralisation is used to indicate a definite amount of the affected noun. For example, all human hands have a definite number of fingers, which is five.

Pronouns[edit | edit source]

Because the Altieri are divine quintessential beings who are considered angelic and spiritual in terms of biology, psychology, appearance and origin, many xenolinguists have made the assumption that pronouns in Altieric are solely gender-neutral. However, there do exist gendered pronouns in Altieric.

Amongst each other, Altieric use gender-neutral pronouns; but when communicating with non-Altieri, they use gendered cases - some Altieri even use gendered cases amongst each other instead of neuter pronouns.

Altieric pronouns also come in 6 Moods: Aggressive, Endeared, Formal, Honorific, Informal and Pejorative.

  • Aggressive: As the name suggests, it is used to imply hostility or wariness. It is considered the least aggressive form of Pejorative. When the Aggressive form is used in first person, it usually implies feelings of bitterness within the speaker.
  • Endeared: These are reserved between individuals within a romantic relationship to express endearment. Only the 2nd and 3rd POV pronouns have the Endeared case.
  • Formal: Used between strangers and in formal or business cases to imply common respect. Its function is very much alike the Japanese formality cases and the Japanese prefix -san'.
  • Honorific: Used to denote a speaker's moderate to high level of respect or reverence, and can be considered the Altieric equivalent of the Japanese prefixes 'sama' or dono'. When used in first person, it denotes the speaker's confidence or arrogance.
  • Informal: Considered the 'casual' pronoun case, used between family members and friends to denote closeness and familiarity. Using this with a stranger or in formal cases would be considered rude or invasive, much like in the case of Japanese pronoun formality.
  • Pejorative: Considered the most hostile pronoun case, it is more hostile than the Aggressive Case and extremely vulgar in connotation. When used in first person, it implies that the speaker carries self-loathing or extreme guilt and shame.

Advanced Grammar[edit | edit source]

Altieric is known commonly for being originally a tonal language similar to Ra'Cielic but was reformed and modernised in the late future in accord to two reasons.

One of the reasons is due to the fact that the language albeit tonal existed in a level higher than any, consisting of frequencies that exceeded human or mortal vocalisation and audio.
