Telèmor Language Lessons (Cursi de limbar telèmor)

Post by vampireshark » Tue 06 Dec 2016, 00:36

I doubt there's much interest in such, but some people have asked about one of the languages I use for projects, Telemor. Thus, I figured, with some spare time on my hands, that perhaps I could do a few lessons (and, in this way, this helps me develop things better).

The kind of lessons I'll be doing is more along the lines of how language classes are taught here in the Grand Duchy, so it's more teaching speaking and conversation rather than strict grammar-grammar-grammar.

Lesson 1: Introductions
Curso 1: Introducsione privlije

Goals of this lesson:
1.) Learn the Telemor alphabet.
2.) Learn basic greetings.
3.) Learn how to introduce yourself.
4.) Learn how to ask questions about others.

My mouth on the dew of your thigh...

Sorry I didn't respond earlier, but I'm interested in learning more about Telemor.

*Raises hand* You said some of the letter names are pronounced with /ɛ/. Is there a way to write /ɛ/?

Is this a Slavic-Romance mix of some sort? Seems to have some Latin and some Slavic roots.

I think it's a Slavic-influenced romlang, in a similar vein to Romanian.

No worry! I've been a bit swamped with stuff, so I've not been as responsive, but I'll try to work on lesson 2 and have that up soon.

/ɛ/ is an allophone of /e/ that occurs in terminal syllables; it's written <e>, but there are no real cases where /ɛ/ contrasts with /e/. Similar with /ɐ/ and /a/: the former occurs in terminal syllables.

Minor correction:

Yep, it's very flavored by Romanian. (I like Romania.)

Not really true, but here we go:

Allo! Me nemète shimobaatar. Sèie èn unirir. Aie due fise. Trave mit delle tecnice informasiolae. Viene d'Alemaniya. Dise lusitonir și suejiir.

Is Telèmor derived from Vulgar Latin like Romanian and other Romance languages, or is it just inspired by Romanian? Either way, I like the look of it!

It definitely looks to be derived from Vulgar Latin. "Vieni" from venīre (probably an analogized form of vēnī)
