# 1 Gorn Language (beta)
09-14-2013, 08:33 PM
Edited: Version 1.3

Gorn Decoder:

a = Tsi' ~ A = Trr'
b = Rsi' ~ B = Rrr'
c = Sis' ~ C = Srr'
d = Dsi' ~ D = Drr'
e = Vss' ~ E = Vrr'
f = Kss' ~ F = Krr'
g = Vas' ~ G = Vir'
h = Skk' ~ H = Srr'
i = Iss' ~ I = Irr'
j = Lis' ~ J = Lrr'
k = Fis' ~ K = Kisk'
l = Vis' ~ L = Visk'
m = Tiss' ~ M = Tisk'
n = Nak' ~ N = Nrr'
o = Yisk' ~ O = Yrr'
p = Ais' ~ P = Ars'
Q/q = Ska'
r = Ris' ~ R = Rrr'
s = Sya' ~ S = Sss'
t = Tiv' ~ T = Tss'
u = Usk' ~ U = Urr'
v = Vrask' ~ V = Vss'
w = Viv' ~ W = Vra'
X/x = Xisk'
y = Avisk' ~ Y = Aisk'
z = Yaha' ~ Z - Zah'

~ INSTRUCTIONS:

Every Letter begins w/ a capital, however, do not get this confused with the different spellings for a capital and lowercase version of a letter.

Sounds focus mainly on emphasizing the K, R, S, A, and I sounds.

[Will Fill In Sounds Soon]

- Ex.
Lowercase w = Viv' Uppercase W = Vra'.

- Example Word: word: Viv'Yisk'Ris'Dsi'.

~ Plans:

Some sort of 1rst 2nd 3rd, Singular/Plural System.

Complexity Boost.

Better Flow.

Pronounce!

So... every letter is its own syllable?

I would be glad if you had any tid-bits on this. I know you are good with Gorn, I am just trying to make a language for them. There isn't really a Canonical resource so might as well try.

Remember, Gorn speak in hisses, clicks, and the like. So each letter having its own syllable may be correct.

True, and they are a patient sort.

There's certainly precedent in other fiction for needlessly long-winded languages - Entish comes to mind.

Interesting project you have going there. But as far as I know, the Gorn are not allergic to F, M, and N sounds. And having a straight decoder-ring style English-to-Gorn letter-by-letter translation matrix does not a language make. An alphabet, maybe, but a language requires a bit more.
