Traditional Script


The Doman language is spoken mostly from the middle to the back of the mouth, while the vowels are spoken in the front-mid portions.

When writing words, with the traditional alphabet, each letter is used to spell out the word (english translated)

When translating, there are no letters that are doubled, and no silent letters.

Traditional Script is still taught in schools, however most of the population today prefer using the latin alphabet

Example:

Hello: Hli (ha-rool).

Money: Winq (vool-nyah-yah).

Any consonants followed by a vowel, adopt the vowel sound instead of the normal end of the consonant.

Examples of combinations:

Hello - Hli:
Ha-ra-ool
Ha-rool

Words - Virtx:
Vwah-ool-rah-dah-sha
Vwool-rah-dah-sha

Love - Lio:
Ley-ool-thaw
Lool-thaw

Examples of words:

I/me: hn (oon)

Welcome: Vliw (vweh-ley-choova)

Home: Hiw (hool-veh)

War: Vc (vweh-rah)

I like to eat: hn lk' si s (uhn rey-k-ah sool ah-sey)

Good: D'it (Jool-dah)

Bad: Bt (b-eh-dah)


Grammar:

There are two ways to structure a sentence. Formal, and informal.

The Informal structure is when you are talking with friends, family, or people with whom you are casual. In this manner, the scentence structure is the same of that of english. When translating, the scentence does not change structure.

The Formal structure is used when talking to someone of a higher position, or to someone whom you respect. In these situations, the verb phrase of a sentence, is placed at the end of the sentence.

Example


I bought a hat today.

Informal-
I bought a hat today.
hn bis hs sit
Uhn b-ool-dah eh heh-sey sool-deh

Formal-
A hat today I bought
hs sit hn bis
eh heh-sey sool-deh Uhn b-ool-dah
