Creator Saeryen Kalador

Kallia is a language created by Saeryen Kalador for use in songs. It is used alongside Hymmnos in her fan work Destiny Ninja: Legend of the Four Seasons, which is based on the otome game Destiny Ninja 2 and aspects of the Ar Tonelico series.

Saeryen also plans to use Kallia in original works and songs.

Phonotactics[edit | edit source]

Writing System[edit | edit source]


Grammar[edit | edit source]

Nouns[edit | edit source]

  • Placing a number (or “kale,” “mide” or “arra”) before a noun indicates a plural
  • Note: “many I” or similar means “we/us,” as “many you” or similar means “you all”

Adjectives[edit | edit source]

  • Adjectives go after a noun
  • Some words, such as “ariyar,” can be both nouns and adjectives
  • Making a noun such as “kanta” into an adjective requires the suffix “-mai”
  • At the end of an adjective, “-mai” creates an adverb, which must come after a verb
  • Past tense verbs may be used as adjectives, just like in English
  • Placing “tir” before a word indicates negation
  • It can also make a word mean the opposite (example: “tir kaligan” means “peacetime”)

Verbs[edit | edit source]

  • The syllable “le” attached to a verb makes it past-tense
  • The syllable “la” attached to a verb makes it future-tense
  • A command or request before a past-tense verb makes the meaning “I wish you had”
  • A command or request before a future-tense verb makes the meaning “I want you to, but at a later time” (the time must then be indicated)
  • Placing a verb after a noun means “(x) did/is doing/will do this”
  • Placing “se” before a verb means “is done” (e.g. “se ore” means “is heard;” “se orela” means “will be heard”)
  • Addition of the word “lea” before a verb makes a command (“I command you to”)
  • Addition of “katrien lea” before a verb makes the command respectful
  • The word “katrien” itself before a verb indicates a request

Use in Magical Songs[edit | edit source]

  • For a magical Kallia song’s spell to be cast, the words “miye” and “miya” must be used
  • A non-magical song sung in Kallia does not have to use the words “miya” or “miye,” but “miye” is more often than not used at the beginning anyway, and “miya” may be added for emphasis
  • Lists such as “miye (a), miye (b), miye  (c)” may be used in Kallia songs, followed by “miya,” meaning “so all of these shall be!”
