Phonotactics[]

Rules:

  • Sonorants and another sonorant cannot cluster unless they are the same sound, then converted to a vowel and a macron
  • Vowels can break the sonority rule and can be clustered. Example: entour
  • Obstruents and another obstruent can cluster, except if they are in the same "article of articulation" family
  • If the above rule is ever broken (happens when particles combine)add a ' to separate them, the previous letter to the ' gets a short dummy vowel added to it
  • On onsets and codas there can only be 2 stops each and must follow the hierachry: k/g > t/d
  • Bilabial stops disallow any other stops from clustering with them
  • Onsets and codas can only contain either voice or voiceless stops, ktp/gdb is totally possible. That means if a stop contains both, they have a ' added between them to separate
  • Sonority reversals can be done with a limit of one
  • The onset can start with any sound, however it cannot be [y]
  • The onset must be equal or higher
  • The median can be optional and only has glides and liquids
  • Complex onsets cannot have the same sounds
  • No glides in complex onsets
  • Complex codas cannot have the same sounds
  • No glides and liquids in complex codas
  • Glides and liquids cannot ever cluster
  • The ʒ or j glide can break sonority rule
  • ʒ can never be the first or third sound in a syllable and must be bounded to: dʒ, lʒ, and tʒ
  • The C stop can never be clustered with another stop, fricative, and nasal

Articles[]

In Vendict there are 7 articles, they are used to distinguish between number, gender, animacy, and of course, a general case.

English Vendict
A Und
The (general) Tek

These are examples for when adding more specificity to it while adding modifiers.

English Vendict
A (augmented) Pand
A (diminished) Dʒunk
The (animated + nonanimated) Tey
The (male) Ter
The (female) Tel

To modify the sounds for the base article must be mutated for it to work.

Modifer Change
Augment add ÔÇÿpÔÇÖ, mutate vowel to ÔÇÿaÔÇÖ
Diminish add ÔÇÿd╩ÆÔÇÖ, mutate vowel to ÔÇÿuÔÇÖ
Animacy add ÔÇÿyÔÇÖ to the end
Male add ÔÇÿrÔÇÖ to the end
Female add ÔÇÿlÔÇÖ to the end

This means that they can be stacked against each other to refine the meaning.

For example:

ENG: The manVDT: Dʒtur GLS: article the male dim/ noun man

ENG: The women VDT: Ptar els GLS: article the female aug/ noun women plural

ENG: A tree VDT: Dʒundy arbur GLS: article a animate dim/ noun tree
