Rambling Introduction

This artifical language was designed to communicate simple commands of a nature suited to that of some Multi-User-Dungeon-Users. I designed it with pen and paper after being introduced to the idea of language design from LangMaker- The previous version of this file was machine-created from the program.

Anyway, I started out with Langmaker to generate a few words for me, and after much thought and consideration, I changed most of them to cut the Orkish alphabet down to a mere 11 different letters. These letters are as follows:

The Orkish Alphabet - Version 3

The language was not originally designed to be spoken, it was merely intended to be used as a sort of code that Orks could use (on whatever MUD it was; I don't remember) to warn and advise eachother of what activites were asked for while using the public chat channel. It was also effective in annoying the other players.

However, some users may want to have a set of pronounciations for the letters, and, therefore, I am forced to produce some here:

Grammar

Orkish operates without any grammar.

Here are legal formats for an Utterance:

Here are some example translations. Another. For some reason I am not quite satisfied with this last one. Read at your own risk.

How to use Negation.
The not word affects those in the same group. i.e. cool-Fissh-not = the Fissh is warm.

This language was developed using LangMaker. You can download your own free copy.This is really cool, useful, but buggy (at least under Win98). Good to get started with.
