The Gammetan Language, mostly but not officially refered to as Kortorisan, the old name of the nation, is a language spoken as a first language by all Gammetans. It is a comprehensive language, in that there are multiple forms of words that would not appear in english. In other words, there are more affixes that can change a word's form. As an example, in English the only forms of words derived from "quick" are "quickly" and "quickness," whereas in Gammetan there would be more than just those, such as "quickibility".
In prononuciations, characters in square brackets (
"]") represent suppression, id est say them with less emphasis.
|Quint||K[w]-int||/ˈkwent/||Forward or front (noun), most commonly the latter.|
|Dafda||D-ahh-f-d-ah||/dahfdah/||Everyone (from "ones" and "one")|
Affixes and other form-modifiersEdit
Affixes and form-modifiers change the form of a word, such as the change from "quick" to "quickly."
|Affix||Pronounciation||English translation||Effect/modification outcome||Example|
|-f||f||/f/||-s or -es||Makes any word a plural||One [noun] (da) to ones [noun] (daf)|
|-fi||fee||/fi/||N/A||Makes a number ordinal||One [noun] (da) to first [noun] (dafi)|
|-is||iss||/es/||-ly||Makes an adjective an adverb||Quick [adjective] (xal) to quickly [adverb] (xalis)|
|-alla||a[h]l-ah||/?/||-ive||Makes a noun an adjective||Addict [noun] (sactus) to addictive [adjective] (sactusalla)|
|-us||er-ss||/?/||-able||makes a verb an adjective||Stop [verb] (uptin) to stoppable [adjective] (uptinus)|
Usually in basic sentences such as commands, the syntax goes: "[[Subject adressed], [Adverb][Verb] [Secondary adverb] [subordinate clause]". E.g.: I command that everyone move forward now, to that place"
