:eng: English
Ancient Egyptians developed papyrus, the earliest form of writing paper, around 2400 B.C. To make papyrus, the Egyptians first placed strips of pith (or sliced plant trunk) side by side.

I decided on Silvish's term for BC for this translation, and I'm really digging it. Fully written out, it's avan Jezuccritti (before Jesus Christ), and then it gets abbreviated to av. Jci

Kankonian:

Egiptikes yughela *esen slibrim zash kolos tri kals ad luimash ad ekhet veye 2400 kinek khezke. Ad hami id slibrim, Egiptikes inam we irkomen frelithes na pezeth reres stak az kapilizen na vare telnet.

Note: kinek, or K is the first letter in the Kankonian word kaluk, meaning before. Khezke, or KH, is the first letter in Khristos.

I did that without needing to coin any new words nor grammar rules!
