[lang] Li-Ya-Hu
« on: April 02, 2011, 08:13:27 PM »

Liyahu is a constructed language created by Xay Voong during the development of a role-playing video game. The core concepts are based on the trinity entities mind, body, and soul. The philosophy is rational, structural, straightforward, compact and concise.

Character Composition
Letters and numbers are made of up three symbols--called vi--positioned around the skeleton, or skel--called nga. (Note the symbols may be color coded, but not necessary.)
MindBodySoul

SkelDown skel
ngavi
also mingavi (up skel)

lettersnumbers

Alphabet
Letters--called la--are written with mingavi (up skel) arranged either horizontally or vertically.

Vowels
Note: Some Latin consonants are used as vowels when romanizing Liyahu. These are q,j,c, and x. In other words, when you see these letters, treat them as vowels. So in addition to the original a,e,i,o, and u, there are nine vowels.

Numerals
Numbers are written with vangavi (down skel). The empty vangavi is also used to represent zero.

Punctuation
Punctuation marks are written with parts of the ngavi (called kc, sounds like cat without t) in any of the eight directions that it is turned. Up is mi, down is va, left is fq, right is pa.

Just realized that Liyahu looks like a field of flowers and grass. The ngavi (skel) looks like stem and leaves and the vi (symbols) like petals of various flowers.
