The Ard Language (often referred to as "Arnese", or "Arden Tongue") is the language spoken by the Ard people of Arnforth. It is one of the three unique tongues spoken on Seylandor.

PronunciationEdit

Digraph IPA Example
aa /æ/ trap, bad, ham
ah /ɔ/ thought, taut, hawk
ei, ey /iː/ fleece, seed, key
ii /ɪ/ kit, ship, rip
ir, ur /ɛr/ square, care, air
oo /uː/ goose, group, few

The accented version of the syllables are standard, meaning that the language is heavily based off Scandinavian sound:

"aa" and "ah" are both long, open "a", the latter, however, being formed more gutterally.

"oo" is used in the instances where a normal "o" (such as "port")  sound needs to become long, as in "door. And only "uu" takes on sound of the "oo".

"ir" and "ur" equal their english counterparts.

"ei" is pronunced much like the German equate, producing a vowel as in "price", "ey" on the other hand, sounds as in "face".

GrammarEdit

The language has basically the same grammar as English, with the exception of apostrophes, instead one would prononce the saying "Ben's Axe" as "The Axe of Ben". It is also this way with the adjectives, instead "Red Umbrella" you would say "The Umbrella is Red". It tends to place prepositional phrases earlier in the sentences then English does. It does not have a tense.

Numbers mimic that of Roman Numerals.
