http://www.geocities.com/rodlox/Conlangs/Faux_Farsi.html I've been working
lately on a conlang for my part of the IB world...the Moghul Realm (unless
someone's grabbed it - if so, no worries)
using copy&paste here, to bring the website into this format as best I can.
(sorry its not better)
This language is a conlanguage, and thus is not real. I am using the
phonemes and a few of the language rules of a few Iranian/Persian languages,
but am deriving original words from them.
References for the phonemes and a few language rules:
"Punjabi-English English-Punjabi Dictionary" by Dr. K.K. Goswami.
"Urdu: Dictionary And Phrasebook" by Nicholas Awde.
"Lonely Planet: Farsi (Persian) Phrasebook: The Language of Iran"
To avoid any confusion, I'll explain here and now what some of the perhaps
odd-looking letters represent, since I only know the English alphabet when
it comes to text-only formats.
e= and a= are e and a with a line over the vowel.
d. and r.are those consonants with a . beneath them.
n. is n with a . overtop of it.
' is an apostrophe...though it may be used as an 'ayn.
" is a glottal stop...like the Cockney bo"le.
__ pair three four five and more
-t -te thhe te= t.e
-d, -dh ___ da, dha de=, dhe=
-d. d.a d.ha d.a' d.a=
n na nhe ne na=
n. n.e n.he n.e' n.e=
verbs -ob -obt -obh -ob.n
guess -ah -ah -ahn -ahn
negation e=x- e=xa=- e=xa=- e=xa=-
"group of..." swe, swen-(both) sun sut su'a, sua
greeting [inclusive] | greeting [non-inclusive]
chey | shey
greeting [for duration of stay] | greeting [other]
mera'chey, mera'shey |
And then there are the words derived from pre-existing languages...
Name / Word in Moghul "from...(s)" in Moghul
Turk Turq from Turks Tur.q
Bahasa Bahas from Bahasa Bahas'
Merbaha (hello) Marhaba=
And now, for some interlinears:
bird is greater part of wing
bird has two wings
The glider is wings
d.ha=q suuv(a)1812 a=f-naate
A=f prefixs time is determined by sentence context, not by its attached
Kiwis have no wings
Ok.t swen-Tim swen-Jim a=f-am-ichar
And both[of a pair]Tim both[of a pair]Jim is-was-being-done-hike
Jim and Tim are [both] hiking
Ok.t swe-Daisy swe-Jim a=f-(am)-swe
Daisy and Jim are married
Welcome to the family
The role is largely determined by the preceeding words.
Welcome to my house
How like a child, typical [of] child (usually refers to behavior)
Flower from [the]Turks
Fruit from [the] Bahasa
