General Info[edit | edit source]
Honestly, this is the thirteenth idea of a conlang I had. With the other twelve, practically all are either not really conlangs, or are just hybrids of different languages. Some even have little progress, but scrapped them. This idea will not only incorporate the other ideas I had in mind before, but will truly represent the region of love (Amoro, Chungganation) in the conworld I'm making. I haven't introduced other conlangs though.
Let me introduce the Chungganese language first. It is technically not a conlang because I developed the said language from Spanish. I would like to introduce this because Antocu will have some features of Chunganese. Amorese is an agglutinative language, therefore it has a lot of affixes added at the end of the word to denote a word/phrase. It also uses a modified Hangul writing system; modified due to the alphabet of Amorese, but can also have the Latin script (the one commonly used), depending on the liking of the user. Amorese is mostly an OVS language (or object-verb-subject), and this is flexible.
Phonology[edit | edit source]
There are sixteen letters in the Amorese alphabet; a, b, c, ch, e, i, j (pronounced as h), l, m, n, o, p, r, s, t, u. It also has other vowels such as ya, ye, yo and yu. Amorese is almost a phonetic language (one pronunciation per morpheme), because of the usage of j and u.
Changes in J
- When J is preceded by an accented vowel, j starts a new syllable. Otherwise, the syllable continues.
Example: bejume is pronounced beume
Changes in U
- When U is preceded by an accented vowel, u starts a new syllable. Otherwise, drop the u sound.
NOTE: yu is an exception. If u is the last vowel in a word, it will never be silent.
Example: unúpa is pronounced unupa
Grammar[edit | edit source]
Pronouns[edit | edit source]
|3rd||li (animate masculine)
la (animate feminine)
Verbs[edit | edit source]
Amorese verbs are simply conjugated depending on the doer of the action.
The subject is added after the verb stem (without the -ri affix). Progressive and/or perfect tenses (-ne and -ja) are added before the subject. No past tense and future tense affixes are used, so Amorese speakers rely on time markers. Example:
|English||I am eating chicken|
As one can see, me is the pronoun I, while ne is the progressive conjugation.
Adverbs[edit | edit source]
Adverbs of manner usually have the suffix -na.
love -> gati
lovely -> gatina
