How do you speak Keidran?

#1 Post by nanbari » Sat Sep 01, 2018 2:42 pm

This is more because I'm a linguistics buff, but is there anything on how Keidran is spoken? Does it use unique phonology that only Keidran use? (More likely not, as we see a Basitin use the language~) How does it sound: guttural (Germanic-ish), or more flowery (like French, Italian, Romance languages)? How many dialects are there, and are they divided among subspecies, like most Wolf Keidran speak this way and Tiger Keidran speak slightly differently? Is there a writing system for Keidran, and if so, how many, because of the relative proximity to humans, who do write, there might be some influence from them.

As a side note, why did Keidran, who live pretty close to humans have a completely different language, while Basitin didn't even though they live completely separate from the mainland, or am I remembering this wrong?

Thanks in advance~

This may be just me, but I imagine Keidran being inspired by Abkhaz or Welsh, if Tom ever gets anyone to build a language for the comic or if he even cares at all.

There is already a thread in the "Comic Discussion" section of the forum regarding this topic. >> viewtopic.php?f=1&t=18796
Feel free to discuss anything regarding the Keidran language there. Thanks. :)

(Someone else may have already mentioned it, but I just noticed this thread today.)
Videre videnda.

Keidran is described as "growly." But, like the above post said, there's an ongoing thread dedicated to this in comic discussion. Also, Basitins do have their own native language.

The thing is that "Keidran" is so poorly built-on that you are absolutely unable to construct even a simple non-progressive clause with it (e.g. I know, you walk).
