Setting[edit | edit source]

Anglish is a form of Northern English with ancient features. Due to writing, spelling and pronunciation reforms, it adopts some modern spellings but retains a strict phonetic pronunciation and preserves ancient phonems lost in modern English. It also retains altered/simplified form of the Germanic declension and conjugation systems. Vocabulary wise, indistinct from formal English except for Northern colloquialisms and preserved ancient Germanic vocabulary lost in modern English. All in all, it can be said to be parallel to Icelandic or Faroese among Nordic languages.

Basic Grammar[edit | edit source]

Declension (Nouns & Adjectives)

Every substantive can be declined. Though proper nouns -like names, or unusual foreign nouns -like the scientific nomenclature- can have their inflections delegated to their modifiers; such as articles, adjectives, or other nouns within the same noun phrase.

The declension is a set of endings given to substantives based on the case and number. The number is either singular or plural. The cases are nominative, accusative, genitive or dative.

The cases are roles that nouns or noun phrases play in a sentence.

Nominative: As subject or as quotation. If a quoted word have a meaning that sould be delegated to other cases, then it may be delegated to a modifier or freely appended to the end of the word.

Genitive: As possesion or related to the word it is appended to. It corresponds to the "-'s" ending in English. It may also be expressed as "af/of + (Accusative/Dative)".

Dative: As indirect object, as direction, and as prepositional case. Every preposition modifies a word into the dative case. For its indirect object or directional meaning it is always expressed as "ta + (Accusative/Dative)".

Accusative: As direct object and prepositional case. For its prepositional meaning, it is less prefered than dative.

Example text[edit | edit source]

When dhat April with hisemis showeremis fragrantemis

Dhe drighness of Marchis has a-pierced ta dhe rooti,

And bathed every vein in such liquidi

By hwichen poweren engendered is dhe flower

Hwen Zephyrus ech with sweeti breathi

Inspired has in every woodlandi and heathi

Dhe tenderes cropes and dhe yong sun

Has in the Rami hisen halfen coursen ge-ronen

And smalles foweles maken melodyen,

That sleepen allen dhe nighten with openemis eyemis

So rises dhe nature in dheiremis heartemis

Then ghearnen folk ta goen on pilgrimagemis,

And palmeres for ta seeken strangens strandens,

Ta faremis away shrinemis, ge-knowen in sundrighemis landemis;

And specially from everighis shire's endi

Of Angelandi and Scotlandi dhey wend...
