Just found some more Erava & Tanala

From:Wesley Parish <wes.parish@...>

Plus the beginnings of yet another conlang, as yet unnamed, as follows:

he'artain - chosen one, |he-| is passive prefix, no specific tense, aspect

Kar'are Te'ya Nachen, Nachen's Kar'are - Te'ya is a postposed article with a
genitive particle postposed to it, so literally Kar'are the-of Nachen.

The Erava:

Yekartai qi   at     naiserizan
Call       we they  uncivilized

"Inqo  Par'khai  Naichu  Rieriouta                  Tifai   Naichu."
 Inqo  Parekh's Bastard  Of the clan of Rie'ari  Tife's  Son

Parekh was a famous king renowned for his attraction to the opposite sex,
among other things; Rie'ari was the (contested) leader of the mounted forces
of Seraii Kero long before it became the human capital city, besides being a
centre for much legendry and story telling.  Tifai Naichu is the standard
patronymic for the upper class.


"Erava!?  Oi   kwai  tevare Erava!?!
Erava"     Do  we    speak  Erava

Antevare    kwai Erava!  Tevare kwai Tanala, Tanala, Tanala!!!"
Not-Speak  we    Erava  Speak  we    Tanala ...

Read and enjoy!
