How do you give a language a specific flavor? Im trying to give mine an outoodrs,
kind of melodic tone, and ive noticed these things:
J's [Zh] give a kind of French or Arabic tone.
lopts of hard consonants usually is a rougher languages [lots of Ks in Tolkiens Khuzdul]
Lots of vowels give it an 'Elven' flavor, and elves are usually outdoorsy types
except this isnt quite the right direction I want. Im wanting more of trying to
get the feeling when you walk through a quient ancient forest, more than
babbling brooks and singing birds.
Am I just nuts?
