Titanian Sylvan

The fey of Avlis not created by O'Ma were created by a goddess named Titania. The version of Sylvan spoken by her people will usually have much more in common with its equivalent from other worlds, planes and game settings than other avlissian languages because she brought this with her. However over time this language has been modified and adapted to Avlis becoming influenced by Nanshilae and through the dynamics of language evolution. In this latter case the avlissian languages that Titanian Sylvan has influenced such as fairy common and Avlissian Sylvan.

Titanian Sylvan is primarily used as a court language. Conservatives in the Titanian community, particularly well placed unseelie fey, will grouse about the diminished status of their primary tongue but will understand, even if they refuse to admit, that this is simply the reality of their lives on avlis.

This language is not complete in grammar or a unified, consistent word list. It does provide a base for further development of this language and by extension other Titanian languages. Should this language ever be completed it would not be incorrect to use its modified vocabulary list to make changes to the fairy common languages vocabulary. Since fairy common and avlissian titanian are both based on Nanshilae grammar that aspect of those two languages should not change since the grammar of titanian sylvan will be unique to it, and the titanian languages it inspires.

Questionary words (words you use in questions)

  • Who Ge
  • What Goo
  • Where Gav
  • When Gal
  • Why Gle
  • How Gef

To ask a question without using a question-word, like "Do you dance?", you merely exchange the first letter of the verb into a "G". So the above question would be "Ma Gilu?", which is basically "You dance?"

Verbs Most of the verbs are regular and follow a set pattern. To change the verb to another time, merely add the correct vowel to the end of the word. It's pretty easy, just watch:

Examples:

  • To Be Fel
  • Is FelI
  • Was FelO
  • Has Been FelU
  • Will Be FelA
  • Being FelIR
  • To Have Miril
  • Has MirilI
  • Had MirilO
  • Have Had MirilU
  • Will Have MirilA
  • Having MirilIR

Plurality Sylvan has a bit more complex plurality rules than English. While English has singular and plural forms, Sylvan has singular, dual and plural. Which means that you have separate versions of "A tree", "Two trees" and "Many trees".

Singular: As written. "A tree" is merely "Mi", as listed in the dictionary.

Dual: A "-p" is added to the end of the word. "A petal" is "Sei", while "Two petals" becomes "Seip". If the word ends in "p", you add "-ip" instrad. This is also the case if the last two letters are already consonants.

Plural:A "-b" is added to the end of the word. "Trees" becomes "Mib". If the word ends on a "b", you add "-ib" instead. This is also the case if the last two letters are already consonants.

Numbers The fey numeric system is based not upon ten, like ours is, but upon five. This means that they count like this: One, two, three, four, five, eleven, twelwe, thirteen, fourteen, etc, so what they call 'eleven' equals what we call six.

The naming system for the numbers is very simple. The numbers one to five have names. The next five numbers have the same names but with a prefix. This prefix changes each five numbers, just like we go from 'twenty' to 'thirty' to 'forty' every ten numbers. Clumsily explained, but perhaps it gets easier to understand by looking at the list:

  • 1 Mimo
  • 2 Mimeb
  • 3 Sesa
  • 4 Sesob
  • 5 Seib
  • 6 NeMimo
  • 7 NeMimob
  • 8 NeSesa
  • 9 NeSesob
  • 10 NeSeib
  • 11 NaMimo
  • 16 NoMimo
  • 21 VeMimo
  • 26 VoMimo
  • 31 LeMimo
  • 36 LoMimo
  • 41 LuMimo
  • 46 LaMimo
