Consonants[]

Classical[]

Valko Nemura has fourteen consonants in its classical form (d f g h j k l m n p r s t v). Six of them (k l m n s t) can be doubled: kk, ll, mm, nn, ss, tt.

All of them sound like in English, but there are some differences:

g: always like in goat
h: always like in heat
j: always like y in you
r: hard as rr in arrow

New Form[]

In addition to the traditional consonants, some have been added due to relations with other cultures.

c: like k
x: like ks. This is used in a few dialects but not in the main form.
w: like v. Introduced from Veltic (!:TODO) It is only used in translation books.
z: like ts. Tt's form like spanish zorro was not accepted.

Some nasalized letters have been added: nj, lj and rj.

The r and rj[]

The rj was very accepted as a soft variant of the r. That's why r and rr are used instead of classical rj and r.

Numbers[]

Asked by Janko Gorenc :)


Silves love the number 3 and so they used a numeric system of 3 sets of 3 numbers making a total of 9.

With the opening of their culture to the world, and the later happenings of Julmalisto, the system was modified with an addition of 3 more numbers making it a set of 3 groups of 3 numbers plus 3 numbers more[1].

References[]

  1. They love number 3 but hate 4. That's why they also hate hearing their system is a 4 groups of 3 numbers each. Remember: 3 of 3 plus 3.
  2. kko is an ending that means "good times"
  3. lin ending means "irrelevant"
  4. mes ending is somewhat related to harvesting
