Mochadian was the first conlang I created. After I originally created it, I abandoned it for a couple years and later decided to use it for a project I have created to simulate a galaxy at war.
The primary users of this language are the Mochadians, a previously warlike race that now dominates nearly half the Mochadian galaxy (Hence the name), but has since calmed down a bit... for now. Mochadians hold change and simplicity very deep in their morals, and that has caused the Mochadian language to go through many different stages during it's evolution. Ever since the galaxy started to expand, the need for a standardized Mochadian language was high, so it hasn't changed much since the Mochadians' expansion. Mochadian is basically the equivalent of esparanto or interlingua, but for the old Mochadian languages.
Orthology and Phonology
There are 28 phonemes written with 19 letters and 9 accentuated letters. Accentuated letters do not count as proper letters.
The only rule is that you cannot double vowels. There are absolutely NO exceptions whatsoever, under ANY circumstance where letters are pronounced different than normal. Each letter has exactly ONE pronunciation.
Grammar and Syntax
Here are the rules I've set in stone:
- All nouns end with a consonant.
- Plural forms of nouns are attained by adding the suffix -a.
- All verbs end with a vowel.
- To indicate past tense, -n is used. The present tense is unmarked.
- For now, until I complete the grammar, the word order will follow English.
- Adjectives may come before or after nouns.
Still working on this, however I have a general idea that prefixes and suffixes would be added to change word meanings, such as, for example, 'an-' for negation.
The only words other than below that I've developed are 'Mokadeòn' (Of Mochadia), 'Mokadeò' (Mochadia), 'ét' (And), 'és' (Is), 'én' (In) 'da' (Of), 'ùn' (A), 'la' (Tha), 'ád' (At), 'no' (No), and 'à' (Or). I'm still thinking about everything else. After writing several sample texts, it has become apparent that words often do not surpass three letters. Here are some demonstrative sentences I have created:
“Sùp ùn kol, ùn ov da no làn ven kàba”
“Kíd és hàk lok da múlt míràra?”
“I hù ád là lùn, ét sà én là med da ùn astà pomér.”
“Éspas: là lemas fín.”
“Là rùmora és vé! Tù ví!”
“I háb pàse ámeka.”
“Là grà rùb kan ko kàr.”
“Śeo, ùn, dù, trà, kùà, kùí, sas, sép, àk, nov, dék, dékùn, dékdù, déktrà, dékkùà, dékkùí, déksas, déksép, dékàk, déknov, dùdak…”
“La ùno di da la kùào lùn és ùn bon di.”
