PaPAneta is a work-in-progress conlang

Classification and DialectsEdit



Labial Dental Palatal Velar Glottal
Plosive p t k ʔ
Fricative f s
Nasal n
Approximant j

Close u
Mid e ə o
Open a


The syllable structure is strictly CV. Unlike in other languages, /ʔ/ is considered a proper consonant.

Writing SystemEdit

PaPAneta has a very minimalistic alphabet. It uses four distinct letters only:

  • White sign (transcribed “░” or “A”)
  • Light sign (transcribed “▒” or “B”)
  • Dark sign (transcribed “▓” or “C”)
  • Black sign (transcribed “█” or “D”)

Standard text is often written using shades of gray but other colors (or symbols) can be used too, as long as it’s clear which is which.

PaPAneta is usually written left-to-right (rows read from top to bottom), but top-to-bottom direction is also allowed (with columns being read from left to right).

A (░)

B (▒)

C (▓)

D (█)

Consonant ʔ p t n
Consonant followed by D (█) s f k j
Vowel ə e a u
Vowel followed by D (█) e a u o

Pairs of consecutive letters make syllables, the first letter of each syllable is a consonant, the second one is a vowel.

AA pronunciation Edit

PaPAneta words don’t have spaces between them. Instead of that, every PaPAneta word is preceded by a “AA” syllable (Every “AA” syllable works as a space). Additionally an extra “AA” marks the beginning of a sentence.

Since pronuncing every single “AA” (/ʔə/) would sound weird and redundant, “AA” can be left completly silent. However, there are some cases where “AA” is always pronounced:

  • When the word itself is monosyllabic (e.g. AABD pronounced: /’ʔəfu/ meaning: one)
  • When the word itself starts with “D”. (e.g. AADBDDAD pronounced: /’ʔenajuʔu/ meaning: cat)

Stress Edit

  • In words with the preceding “AA” pronounced (see above), the primary stress falls on that “AA”. (e.g. AACD pronounced: /’ʔəku/ meaning: two)
  • Otherwise, it’s on the syllable right after the “AA” (e.g. CCAD pronounced: /ta’su/ meaning: human, person)






Example textEdit

  • Sentence: ░░░░███▓░░░▓█▒▒▒░░░▓▓░▒▓░░░█▒▓

  • Translation: I am happy.”/”I am feeling good.
  • Literally: I am a user of a feeling of good.
