Pronunciations and Tenses
c– c is always pronounced as a k sound. Therefore, the word Celian is always pronounced Kelian, and not as Selian.
x – x is always pronounced as a s sound, making the word Xhin pronounce as S-hin, and not Zhin. The one acceptation to this rule is the word Xelian which is still pronounced as Kelian as shown in the English spelling of the word.
a – a is always prounced as an au sound, as in ‘trauma’. Making the word Alan pronounced as Au-laun and not with the pronunciation of as the name ‘Alan’.
e- e is always pronounced with the short vowel sound of e such as the word ‘tender’.
i- i is always pronounced as a hard e. Making the word Garin prounounced as Gar-een and not as Gar-in.
o- o is always pronounced as a hard o, as in the word ‘home’. Making the word lio pronounced as lee-O
u- u is always pronounced as an oo sound, as in the word ‘broom’. Making the word fodu pronounced as fo-doo.
y- y is is not often used, and has the same rules as the letter i
Removing the last consonant and vowel from the end of a word and replacing it with -um will make the word plural. Example: Orah (Gnorb) becomes Orum (Gnorbs). If the word ends in a vowel, only that last vowel is removed and the -um is added. Example: Aliomi (History) becomes Aliomum (Histories). If the word is two letters or less, -um is simply added onto the end of the word. Example: Ma (Doom) becomes Maum (Dooms).
There is a singular use and a plural use of the word ‘the’. Lai (the) is used when the word following it is singular. Example: Lai tatam (The power). Fi (the) is used when the word following it is plural. Example: Fi tatum (The powers.)
Adding –wa to the end of a Celian word is equivalent to adding ‘-ing’ to the end of a word in English. Example: Morran (Know) becomes Morranwa (Knowing).
Adding -ne to the end of a Celian word will make the word past tense. Example: Alan (Unify) becomes Alanne (Unified).
