Fén Ghír is an a priori constructed language by Fauxlosophe on the Linguifex Wiki for the conworld Sphaera. It shows heavy Irish Gaelic influence in orthography and phonology, as well as in grammar. The grammar and syllable structure have also been heavily influenced by Japanese. English and French are also present as lesser influences.
Specifically, the core arguments of verbs, are the two arguments (in English, subject and object) of transitive verbs:
- The dog chased the cat
And the single argument of intransitive verbs:
- The cat ran away
English has a subject, which merges the more active argument of transitive verbs with the argument of intransitive verbs, leaving the object distinct; other languages may have different strategies, or, rarely, make no distinction at all.For conlangers, it is important to know that few languages are of merely one morphosyntactic alignment; in most cases, the alignment varies depending on context.
