Creator Kriskrisis

Nafamispracu [näfämis'prätʃu] is a language spoken by the inhabitants of Arehucas Kingdom, from the creator's fiction; it is spoken by humans and other inhabiting species, it is also the official administrative and religious language. Elves, as an inhabiting species in the kingdom, speak their own language: Ψotwaεflo [ɲotuä'eflo], as well as Nafamispracu. It's based many languages from Earth, so it's possible to see some similar words, declensions, tenses, etc. no matter what your language is. Ex: "Baza" [βäzä], comes from English "Bath"; "Koca" ['Kotʃä] (car), comes from Spanish "Coche"; "Shinw" ['ʃinuv] (to die), comes from Japanese "死ぬ"; etc.

Writing System[]

Notes:

[æ] is mostly used in religious texts, so it is rare to hear it in regular conversations.

The graph "tsh" might be seen in ancient texts and special dialects and is obsolete in modern Nafamispracu; it should be pronounced [tʃ].

[v] is obsolete in modern Nafamispracu, the graph "v" has evolved into [f] but it might be seen in some ancient texts and special dialects.

The graph "w" may only be pronounced [uv] when it is placed at the end of a verb infinitive.
