[top]Welcome - vekana

Avies, my name is Valiiosanae and I will be your tamal, or teacher, of my language, Vishel. In today's lesson I will introduce some vocabulary and the basics of building a sentence in Vishel.

So what are the main features of Vishel?
+ The Ledranossies (seen in the image at the top)
+ Seven Cases
+ No Gender
+ No Articles
+ Six Verb Moods
+ SOV Word Order
+ A Mostly Phonetic Orthography

Today we won't worry about conjugating verbs or the dropping of pronouns. Above is a complete list of all pronouns used in the language. Below you'll find a list of the most basic verbs and after that some helpful nouns.

Verbs - aketieoni

Avellus - (to) Speak, (to) Talk
+ /ɑ-bɛɫ-lus/
Pamellus - (to) Eat
+ /pɑ-mɛɫ-lus/
Posiesus - (to) have
+ /po-seɪ-sus/

Tevenom! Most Vishel nouns can be transformed into the verb form by adding -us or -mus, depending on whether the noun ends in a consonant or a vowel, respectively. So, how many nouns do you know now?

Avel - Language, Speech
+ /ɑ-bɛɫ/
Pamel - Food, Bread
+ /pɑ-mɛɫ/
Posies..? - EXCEPTION! This word cannot be changed into a noun...
+ /po-seɪ/

REMEMBER, as we move along in lessons different colours will be used to represent different parts of speech. In these examples blue has been used to represent pronouns, red for verbs, and green for nouns.

[top]Practice - lareno

Mos avelus. -  
+ /ɑn-ʒɑ seɪ/

Pamel sun posiesus. -  
+ /-mɛɫ sun po-seɪ-sus/

Avel mos pamelus. -  
+ /ɑ-bɛɫ mos pa-mɛɫ-lus/

REMEMBER, these verbs haven't been conjugated nor have the nouns been declined.

[top]Closing - phinalies

Thank you for viewing this lesson and don't forget to memorize the words and the tevenomi, or rules, provided in this lesson. In Lesson 2 I will teach you how to conjugate to present tense for all persons, teach you how to decline some nouns, and (hopefully) introduce some common phrases.
