Sryanonese: A brand new language

Okay I am happy to introduce my own language named after myself (and this is not any made up language by some random person though I am still working on it).

My site sryanonese.weebly.com (currently but should be sryanonese.com when I get it completed) will give all the details you will need whether it is verb conjugation, irregular verbs, grammar, vocabulary and even exercises for you to practice!

Sryanonese is a bit tricky sometimes because for example, for the Future Tense (Nontíot Luíc in Sryanonese), you use the pronoun, present tense of the irregular verb Tias (To turn) and the infinitive of the regular verb (so the verb stays the same). In Sryanonese, there is no specific syntax, you just have to learn off different sentences though there are some patterns you will recognise!

More tricky features about Sryanonese

*You use the verb Tias when you talk about your age (so you literally say I turn 13, 14 etc in Sryanonese) (Example: Uai tia sa tout - I turn 2)
*There is no word for "Every" in Sryanonese so you must learn off different vocabulary for it. For example, to make things less confusing of what I mean

Every Tuesday - ouil Muire Literally "give Tuesday"
Every month - míonta díoin Literally "month year"

*There are 23 irregular verbs
*It is not allowed in Sryanonese to use mathematical symbols when doing Maths questions in the language. So for example, 2 X 3 = 6 (Sryanonese would be "Tout nír rudi = s'hout"). You might also notice when adding, subtracting, multiplying OR dividing numbers, you do not put in the "sa". However, for your answer, YOU DO.

There are plenty more tricky features and I gotta say it was a tricky language to make . It was a lot of hard work too . It is not all hard and challenging, however, as some things such as the BESE DE TON WID - days of the week are very straight forward. See for example:

Monday - Luire
Tuesday - Muire
Wednesday - Chuire
Thursday - Duire
Friday - Auire
Saturday - Suire
Sunday - Druire

Another easy thing about the language is, there are no male OR female nouns - you just need to learn off a few rules for example words ending in 'íon' or 'e'.

Questions - Statuitone

Pronunciation in brackets

Si-even - What (Sy-eevin)
Si-eir - Who (Sy-air)
Si-rie - Where (Sy-ree)
Si-pol - When (Sipul)
Si-neve - Why (Sy-niamh/neev)
Si-ire - How (Sy-ire)

Si-ire í phai - How are you (sy-ire ee fay)
Si-even nu ti reen - What is your name (sy-eevin new t reen)
Si-rie í phai to - Where are you from (sy-ree ee fay toe)
Si-pol rie phai diontar - When were you born (sipul ree fay deentar)
Si-neve phai poutan - Why you ask (sy-niamh/neev fay pooton)
Phai í resaix - Are you okay (fay ee res-ice)
Phai í esuyp - Are you well (fay ee es-u-p)
Si-even res phai míon toogias - What do you like to do (sy-eevin res fay mean toogias)
Si-ire í phai tooglín - How are you doing (sy-ire ee fay toogleen)
Si-ire nu hiesses - How is everything (sy-ire new he-s's)
Si-ire ti lariess tyanoín phai - How's life been treating you (sy-ire t lar-e-s's tie a nine een fay)

Tip: When asking questions such as "Are you okay?" or "Are you well?", in Sryanonese, make sure you write the pronoun first and then "í' (are, as in question). However, when there is a question word such as "what" or "who", it always translates as the way it would in English.

Does the pronunciations help?

What is your aim with this language? How far are you expecting it to go?

The aim of Sryanonese, like any language, is getting out into the world to be spoken. I don't expect to grow very popular like English, Spanish, French, Mandarin etc but I'm speaking it to all the people I know and they find it pretty easy compared to the languages they learn - largely due to what they have been taught so far . They won't be saying that when they get to the stage of words such as 'every' or 'a' which both have multiple translations - depending on the tense or the noun. How do you find the language so far? How I come up with new words for every word in the English language is like this:

1. I listen to a certain song
2. I list the English words in it which I haven't translated yet into Sryanonese
3. If any of the new words are verbs, I conjugate each into every tense - whether regular OR irregular.

Like, right now, I have done so far 9 out of 23 irregular verbs.

I am working right now on translating my friends' songs 'cause I have done my one. It is just a new language of communication - so nothing very special like. There are plenty of irregular translations in Sryanonese! - downfall to it, so if you learn it, you better get thinking!

I honestly wish you the best, I love languages! I'm currently in the process of learning another two at the moment, so I wouldn't have any time for Syranonese.

You say there is no syntax and you have to learn off sentences. How will people be able to explain novel ideas if there are no syntax rules? You couldn't only have learnt phrases...

No there is no specific syntax but an average sentence would be something like:

pronoun - verb (conjugated) - noun - article - adjective

Example

Uai dest píotí líon pounta - I am a nice person - but literally, I am person a nice

If you keep checking out the updates each day, you will find Sryanonese much easier.

We're all in Dublin! But you don't have to move anywhere if you feel like learning the language - because this thread is all you need.
