Nievan language


Part 1


some info
Nievan is the tong of the Fleshtails and was developed during the last three thousand years by the Lienx tribes that moved inland from the vakavela forests to inhabit the norther planes of what was to become Mandova; the largest mecca for trade and the capital of its territory.

love it! I'm writing a story myself and finding that I need to create a bit of a vocabulary myself. This is a great inspiration!

Aw thanks! I was actually inspired by Ahkward to start my own language after she showed her own language for her comic, Naor (probably butchered the name, hng). :'D

Lol close though

Naor - island name
Naori - people of Naor
Naoru - language of the people

And really? I would have figured you already were making a language.

LOL! well I tried XD

And yes, I used have one back in the 6th - 8th grade, but I can only remember one word, Kathiil (demon). I gave up on it later cause I couldn't find anyone who wanted to speak is except my friend and she moved away.
However, when I saw what you were doing it made me want to try again. I never wrote down what I had before (or at least I can't find it) so I've been having to start all over.  ;u; :heart:
