The Platsholts Tongue is the official, native language of the Sholsheloveks of the nation of Platsholts who used to live all around a secluded mountain range (Hence, 'Platsholts' literally means 'land-mountain' ).

Due to its noun-creation system, the language is infamous for its long words, just like German.

Classification and History

Classification

The Platsholts Tongue is a Slavo-germanic language that is closely related to German and Russian. It also has words borrowed from English and words originating from Chinese.

Formation of Proto-Platsholts

The Platsholts tongue started out as a slang by a group of slavic nomads travelling around Europe circa 1200 AD, by mashing together slavic and germanic words. Nouns had no declension at all, so cohesion relied on syntax. By 1260, the slang’s grammar system began to evolve.

Circa 1260: The Nominative, Accusative, and Dative cases are created

Circa 1265: pronunciations of borrowed words started to deviate from its origins.

Circa 1320: The nomads, now named the “Kolshotin” tribe after its new leader, begin to visit China. There they learn some Chinese words to incorporate into their slang, now called “Kolsholtintunk” (Kolsholtinian tongue). The slang’s first two noun gender (Literal and Cosmic) is invented and the slang is now considered between nomad members as a language.

1326: The Kolsholtin settle on Kvertshpotshpigolatik, a secluded mountain range. Although they will still wander around Northern and Western Europe for the next 450 years, the mountain range will be considered their ‘headquarters’.

1326 onwards: As the Kolsholtin find sustenance to bring back to Kvertshpotshpigolatik, the Kolshotintunk vocabulary of food and drink rapidly expands.

1353: Kolsholtin (the tribe leader) is succeeded by his son, Shatmoystem. Kvertshpotshpigolatik is renamed Shatmoystemberg. The name “Kolsholtintunk” now means “Kolsholtin’s tongue”, to refer to the former leader. Kolsholtin (the tribe) is renamed Kolsholtintrike (Kolsholtin’s tribe) or Kotri to avoid confusion. Its members are now called “Kolsholtincheloveken” (Kolsholtin’s people) or Kotschen.

By 1370: All words borrowed from Chinese have their pronunciations altered

Formation of Koltunk, aka Early Platsholtstik

1479: To meet popular demand for a writing system, the Cyrillic script is used for Kolsholtintunk’s alphabet.

1480: The Genitive case is created.

1481: With the Kolsholtintunk alphabet finalised, 2 christian monks visit Shatmoystemberg and translate the Holy Bible into Kolshotintunk.

1587: “Kolsholtintunk” is shortened to “Koltunk”.

Circa 1594-Circa 1878: Most words unique to Platsholtztik originated from this period

Circa 1641: New sounds, y, dz, ɯ, ʊ , begin to form. But they will not get their own letters for the next 234 years.

Circa 1699: Ablative case is invented.

1773: Traders from around the world start to visit Shatmoystemberg after confirmation that the mountain range contains raw metal. In exchange for those metals, the Kotri become very rich and leave behind their nomadic lifestyle.

1775: The Kotri peacefully unite the many tribes around Shatmoystemberg, now named Zhetsholts, and the Kotrian Empire is established. It spans from the entire Shatmoystemberg mountain range and its valleys to a huge grassland called ‘Gradalestomoit’ inhabited by 7 of the 14 united tribes. Postoklisgibet, a descendant of Kolsholtin, is appointed Zhetye (King). His first decree is to shorten everybody’s names and introduce surnames. Zhetye Postoklisgibet is renamed Zhetye Posgot Zhelivnet.

1796: The Russian Empire unsuccessfully attempts to conquer the Kotrian empire in the 1st Russo-Kotrian War.

The Language Reform of 1875

Native linguist Stanliski Gotmason successfully proposes a new grammatical gender, “Representative”.

New sounds in the language are documented: y, dz, ɯ, ʊ . It is realised that these sounds share letters with other sounds in the Koltunk alphabet ( У , Ц , И , О ), losing their phonetic consistency. New symbols are quickly created by linguist Valtsen Zomashi to accommodate these sounds. As a result, the Koltunk alphabet started to deviate from the Cyrillic script.

The letter ‘Ч’ is kicked out of the alphabet as its sound, an English ‘ch’, is now extinct in Koltunk.

4 new grammer cases are created: Instrumental, Locative, Causal, and Translative.

Far-future tense is invented.

The Koltunk alphabet deviates from the Cyrillic script even further, incorporating Greek and Latin letters.

Koltunk word order is standardised. Previously, each Koltunk speaker had his or her preferences.

Koltunk is renamed Koltik, as the word for ‘tongue’ evolved from ‘tunk’ to ‘tik’. The name ‘Platsholts’ would only be created in 1916.

Aftermath of language reform

1877: With a improved grammar system that allows precision while being compact, Kotrian Literature grows and flourishs.

1889: The Platsholts alphabet takes its modern form.

1896: The Bible is translated into Koltik

1914: After many victories, The Kotrian Empire loses Gradalestomoit and the northern mountains beyond Katamana to the Russian Empire in the 5th Russo-Kotrian War, who claims the grassland is strategically essential to fight World War 1. The Kotrian Empire basically loses its empire (It was barely one in the first place) and is dissolved. Everyone who remain form the state of Platsholts.

Since The Kotrian Empire was not directly involved in fighting in World War 1, Platsholts was able to recover from the collapse of its Empire.

Forming of Modern Platsholtstik

1916: Koltik is renamed Platsholtstik. The people of Platsholts are called the Sholsheloveks (literally, Mountain-People).

1942: In exchange for Gradalestomoit, Sholshelovek soldiers are sent to help the Soviets fight the Nazis.

1945 onwards: Platsholtstik starts directly borrowing more words from English. Borrowed words from English from this period onwards are special as their pronunciations are left intact to this day (unless, of course, there are sounds in those words that do not exist in Platsholtstik).

1987: Platsholtsian spys convince Mikhail Gorbachev into signing away Katamana to Platsholts.

1992: The Soviet Union dissolves. As a result, Platsholts regains the rest of the northern mountains.

Writing System

Modern Platsholts Alphabet (Саишасплатшолцтиказвука)

The mordern Platsholts alphabet is a blend of Russian, Latin and Greek alphabets, with some letters having different pronunciations from the originals. There are 31 letters in the Platsholts alphabet: 7 vowels, 4 ‘special’ vowels and 20 consonants. Beware of letters that look similar but are actually different!

Letter A B C δ Ε Φ Γ Х И Ж К Л
Sound a b s d e f g x i zh k l
Letter М V O П Т У Θ N Ü Z Ω
Sound m n oe p r t u v ɯ y tz aw
Letter Ц Ш З Я JE Ë Ю
Sound ts sh z ja je jo ju

Letters ‘2Л’ and ‘JE’ are meant to be one letter, with ‘2Л’ supposed to be a ‘Л’ with a long tail and ‘JE’ supposed to be conjoined.

Every letter in lower case looks similar to its upper case counterpart.

If a vowel is doubled, it means its sound is stretched out

If a vowel is doubled, it means the sound is stretched out.

Grammar (Г2ламатика)

Nouns (Vaуvev)

Gender (Жетая)

All improper nouns need to have one of the three grammatical genders. Literal nouns physically exist, like an apple or a person. Figurative nouns do not physically exist, like rank or literal nouns meant to be metaphors. Cosmic nouns are nouns that concern or exist exclusively in outer space, regardless of whether it is literal of figurative.

Gender Literal Figurative Cosmic
Native name Лиδe2ла 2Летпозnvта Козмока
Noun suffix -

Noun declension is consistent with every noun and is to be put at the very back of the noun.

Cases (КасЁ)

There are 10 grammatical cases in the Platsholts tongue.

Case Nominative Accuasative Genitive Essive Dative Ablative Instrumental Locative Causal Translative
Native Name ЯтмоvaткасË АтмуδаткасË АхгоjeткасË УхалакасЁ АшаткасË ИшаткасЁ Амит2латкасË ОθjeцеткасË Ифалахкас Ë Аток2леикасË
Suffix - -aт -ax -уз -аш -ак -ам -оθ -иф -аток
Meaning X X (direct object/patient) of X Y, as X to/towards X away from X using X at X for/because of X turning into X

If the noun has a special vowel at the end, or is a standalone vowel e.g. ‘Ü’ (It), remove the first vowel in the suffix. E.g. ‘Я’ in accusative case is ‘Ят’.

If a noun has a vowel at the end, remove that vowel. E.g. Махке in accusative case is Махкат.

Platsholtstik grammer cases are very important. The meaning of a sentence can change just by switching cases.

E.g. Я δокто2л (I am a doctor) Literally: I doctor

Я δокто2лат. (I really am a doctor)

Яx δокто2л. (My doctor)

Я δокто2луз. (I, a doctor)

Я δокто2лaш. (I am going to a doctor)

Я δокто2лак. (I am moving away from a doctor)

Я δокто2лам. (I am using the help of a doctor)

Я δокто2лоθ. (I am at a doctor['s place])

Я δокто2лиф. (I am doing this for a doctor)

Я δокто2латок. (I am turning into a doctor)

This is because of the default meanings of most grammer cases and the context.

Prepositions (П2лепозишоv)

(Аш) - Dative preposition (Оθ) - Locative preposition (Иш) - Ablative preposition

Мит- (accompanying) (Аш)

Матмит- (not accompanying) (Аш)

Ум- (at [time]) (Оθ)(Иш)

Aм- (on [date]) (Оθ)(Иш)

Уvте - (under, underneath) (Аш)(Оθ)(Иш)

Pronouns (П2лоvayv)

Pronouns Meaning
Я I
δу You (informal)
Зy You
Ü/ÜЁ/ÜЮ It / This
E2Л He
Зva She

Equivalents for ‘We’ and ‘They’ can be created by turning ‘Я’ and ‘Ü/ÜЁ/ÜЮ’ respectively into their plural form (see below).

Possessive pronouns can be created by declining pronouns into the genitive case.

Articles (Атикел)

Noun prefixes Definite Indefinite
One δa- -
Some Ma- Mo-
Many (general plural) Vo- Voθ-
All Ал- -
None Va- -
Unspecified Vy- -

Add ‘-ге-‘ after a plural prefix to denote dissimilarity. E.g. ‘Voгепиvгe’ (Many dissimilar apples). Or add '-гу-' to denote similarity. E.g. ‘Voгyпиvгe’ (Many similar apples)

These prefixes can be used for Pronouns too.

Adjectives (δecк2липтпазva)

Adjectives in Platsholtstik are roots that are combined with a noun to tweak its meaning. If two or more adjectives are used, any one adjective in the word modifies both the noun and the adjectives after it.

Г2лосуvге (A large boy)

δaг2лос2леvтпиvгje (The big, red apple)

δae2лштеvвлaΩvтшелоθek (The first blond-haired man)

Verbs (Aктjeпазva)

Pronoun Conjugation Past tense Future tense Figurative
Я -еvy -ге Фn- -o
δy -ecт -ек -oт
Zy -evü
Ü/ÜЁ/ÜЮ -ет -ге
E2Л -ииv
Зva
Plural Pronouns vev -геv

There is also a ‘far-future tense’ created during The Language Reform of 1875 (see the “Characteristics and History” section for more details on the reform) that adds a ‘Фи-‘ at the start of the verb instead of ‘Фn-‘ (future tense). However, in practice, the distinction between future and far-future was deemed too vague that this tense now only appears in late-19th century Kotrian Literature. It still exists as an archaic grammar rule, though.

If a verb conjugates to the pronoun ‘Я’ ,’δy’ or ‘Zу’, the pronoun itself can be dropped to shorten the sentence.

‘Ü’ is the general pronoun for everything, including human beings. Verbs only conjugate for ‘E2л’ and ‘Зva’ if the pronouns themselves are used.

‘To be’

Just like Russian, ’to be’ does not appear in present tense.

E.g. Я δокто2л. (I am a doctor) Literally: I doctor

Ü Ma2лк. (This is Mark) Literally: It Mark

In basic introductory sentences like the above, the object need not be in the accusative case, unless to denote confirmation.

E.g. Я δокто2лат. (I really am a doctor)

Pronouns have to be present, as there is no verb to conjugate.

The past tense of ‘to be’ in Platsholtstik is just a past tense prefix standing by itself. This is the same for its future tense.

E.g. Я ге δокто2л. (I was a doctor)

Я Фn δокто2л. (I will be a doctor)

Reflexive verbs

Ending letter Consonant Vowel
Suffix -ся -сn

E.g. Ушитеvугесn (I dressed myself)

Syntax (Пазvaoδje2лита)

A basic sentence in the Platsholts tongue follows this word order: Verb - Subject - Object

θжnvииv yvге хуvтaт (A boy sees a dog) Literally: See boy dog

However, the word order can be altered to switch emphasis as long as the grammar cases are in check (‘хуvδJEт’ is in the accusative case)

yvге θжnvииv хуvтaт (It is a boy who sees a dog) Literally: Boy see dog

хуvтaт θжnvииv yvге (It is a dog a boy sees) Literally: Dog see boy

θжnvииv хуvтaт yvге (A dog is seen by a boy) Literally: See dog boy

Forming questions (Махкееvü Иvте2ло)

Yes/No questions

Simply add a question mark

E.g. Mахкииvге Е2л üт? (Did he do this?)

Interrogative words (Иvте2лагатияпазva)

Лока - Who

Што - What

К2лоv - When

Штоплат - Where (Literally: What land)

θe2лк - Why

Кnк - How

Platsholts interrogative words are treated like pronouns, so they also experience noun declension, but they do not need grammatical gender.

E.g. Mахкетге лока üт? (Who did this?)

Е2л штоплат? (Where is he?) Literally: He where?

When a question mark is not used, the interrogative words alter their meanings.

Лока - Someone

Што - Something

К2лоv - Somewhen

Штоплат - Somewhere

θe2лк - For some reason

Кnк - Somehow

E.g. Mахкетге лока üт. (Someone did this.)

Е2л штоплат. (He is somewhere.)

The interrogative words can also function as connectors.

E.g. Читаетеvу δaavaт, лока махкетге üт. (I know the one who did this)

δaжΩтoθ, штоплат леθеvииv е2л. (The house where he lives)

Demonstratives (δeмоvст2латиθпазva)

Üte - This

Üv - These

Üta - That

Üti - Those

Negatives (Veгатиθитиипазva)

The literal translation of 'No' is 'Bут', originating from the Chinese word '不' (bù) that roughly means the same thing.

To convey absence, like 'there is no...' or '...is absent' , use 'Byш' proceeding the absent noun.

E.g. Toм вyш. (Tom is absent)

Уvге вyш. (There is no boy)

To convey the absence of an action, use 'Маит' preceding the action.

E.g. Mаит 2лоveт yvге . (The boy is not running) Literally: Not run boy

To convey ‘Do not…’ as a command, remove the subject and remove verb conjugation.

E.g. Mаит 2лоv! (Do not run!)

To convey ‘…are not allowed’, use ‘Vjeлзя’ after the noun.

E.g. Vaшелоθек vjeлзя (nobody is allowed) Literally: Nobody is not allowed

As seen in the example above, double negatives actually emphasise the negative, instead of cancelling each other out.

Comparative and Superlative (Компапазva)

To compare two objects, use ‘гато’.

E.g. E2л гут гато Яш (He is better than me) Literally: He is good past me.

Яаш гут гато e2л (I am worse than him)

Зva гут гато (She is better)

*The noun being compared to must always be in the dative case.

To express the highest degree of something, add the plural prefix ‘Aл’ to the noun being compared to.

E.g. E2л гутат гато AлЯаш (He is the best (among everyone)) Literally: He is good past we all

Roots can change prefixes and/or suffixes to create new words.

Махкеет - to make

Махке - creation

Roots can also combine with other roots.

2Лаит (work) + Плат (land) = 2Лаитплат (workplace; office)

Roots may even use the old Koltunk plural system.

δje2лeθa (tree) > δje2лeθи (forest)

Ша (sand) > Ши (beach)

Cardinal numbers that modify nouns, like "two apples", work the same way as adjectives. However, they are always put at the very front of the modified noun. Once a cardinal number modifies a noun, the noun's plural prefix can be dropped. To create an ordinal number, simply add '-теv' if it is treated like an adjective. The only exception is "first" which is modified into "Ershte- "(adj) or "Ershtyo" (noun). When a cardinal or ordinal number is used as a noun, like 'the three' or 'the fifth', simply follow the noun rules on the noun prefixes and suffixes section.

As you may have noticed, numbers 24, 48, 60 and 84 deviate from the consistent numbering system. These are actually the remnants of Platsholts’ ancient base-24 number system.

A simple description of your age is ‘Я (cardinal number as an adjective)лакмашуЁф.’ This literally translates to ‘I am because of (number) years.’

Swear words

Some Platsholtsian swear words come straight from Russian vocabulary.

Аδемаш - “go to hell!”, literally ‘hell’ in dative case.

Гаθvo - “shit”

Хуи - “dick”

Хуигезит - “dickface”

П2локеvu ü - “damn it/this” in a more literal sense, used when abandoning a situation or an object.

Зуах/δуах хуимам - “with your dick!”, a sarcastic answer when asked how to complete an incredibly easy task.

Dialects and Derivatives

Platsholts dialects are not highly respected in Platsholts because of their origins.

Gradatik (Gradatik/Г2лаδатик), aka “Platsholtstik from Hell” (Платшолцтик изадемоθ)

A dialect from Gradalestamoit, created circa 1879 from prolonged exposure to Germany.

Gradatik borrows way more words from German than Standard Platsholtstik does and only has 4 cases: Nominative, Accusative, Dative, and Instrumental.

It also has “to be” in present tense, ‘Ист’, borrowed from german.

‘N’ are pronounced the same as ‘И’, though it still keeps its letter.

The name “Platsholtstik from Hell”, called by non-speakers of the dialect, is based on Gradalestamoit’s low elevation compared to other places where Standard Platsholtstik is the overwhelming majority.

Experts argue if Gradatik is a German dialect or a Platsholtstik one.

Nortatik (Нортатик/Vo2лтатик), aka “Russian Spy Language” (2ЛΩсяспитик)

A dialect from the Northern Mountain, created circa 1952 under Soviet rule.

Nortatik only has 7 cases: Nominative, Accusative, Dative, Ablative, Genitive, Locative, and Instrumental.

Letters originally from the Cyrillic script were reverted back (E.g. ‘δ’ became ‘Д’).

The russian vowel stress system was applied. ‘O’ can sometimes sound like ‘A’.

New Platsholtstik (Vaθостплатшолцтик)

A failed Platsholtstik substitute made by a group of linguists.

This ‘reformed’ version has absolutely no verb conjugations or grammatical cases, being heavily reliant on word order.

It was reportedly highly unpopular by other linguists and the public alike.

Comparision

Standard Platsholtstik: Леумет 2лешеvo ях δапиvгат. Атлишva!

Gradatik: Киvδ ях ливит δаaпелат. Аусгецаихveт!

Nortatik: 2левоvo яма леувит явлокома. Отлитшva!

New Platsholtstik: Леум 2лешеvo θοv я δапиvге. Атлишva!
