So you seen James Cameron's "Avatar" and was fasinated that he and Frommer had created a fully functional language, or maybe you are writing a book and wanted the same.......or maybe you just wanna drive your friends and family nuts (unless your teaching them) by talking in a foreign tongue, well no need to worry.....*we do not live in the Dark Ages so people shouldn't beleive you are possesed*.

I have found a site that may explain somethings i do not and will be able to help you with the Grammar of your language.
- http://www.zompist.com/kit.html#lexicon

So some things we will have to do are as follows:
-Alphabet (doesnt have to have english characters)
-Word Creation
-and what ever else you think will help make this unique

I am of no way held responsible for anything that may or may not happen to you using your own language........i dearly apologize if you are abducted by 9 ft tall blue people, get slapped by your girlfriend cause of mistranslation or if you are beleived to be possesed by your Crazy Great Aunt......please use these tools responsibly.

now then, lets move on......

Step 1: The Alphabet

Haha this part is quite literaly easy as abc.....
All you have to do is choose how many vowels you want, how many constanants you want and write/draw out the symbols.  In Frommer's Na'vi there are words with two characters instead of one like "aw" or "kx" these can be created to make one letter (vowel or constonant) for your language.Note this can vary the complexity of your Language, for example: in english "c" and "k" can both make the same sounds and "c" and "s" can make the same sounds so the need for "c" is not entirely needed. It can also vary the complexity in that you can have one letter for every sound you can think of or maybe some, like "c" can share sounds.....with that in mind you could have a 100 letter alphabet or mabey only a 15 letter alphabet, what ever you decide.

I know this seems like a lot so take your time and when your ready continue on.........

This is basically an accented soft 'h' letter sound produced at the back of the throat.</p><p>Ғғ = pronounced the dame as the Polish letter 'ł' which has the sound of l and w together but with more emphasis on the w so that it almost sounds like a 'w' as in work.</p><p>Рр = trilled/rolled r but more of er sound.</p><p>The bracketed characters have no sound and are the hard and soft sign.</p><p>Everything else is mainly pronounced the usually Cyrillic way.</p><p>There are a lot of rules on word order of sentences, verb endings, pronunciation of certain characters when they are next to certain characters, and a lot of grammatical rules.

<p>First, you forgot Step 5. Second, one day, out of random and on a whim, I wrote a word in reverse. This began me writing all of the words in reverse. And it eventually led me to the decision of making a language out of it. No, it's not completely original, for it uses the english language, most of it's rules, and obviously is based off of the english language, but it was a fun idea. I have gotten a bunch of friends together to help me make a rule special for my language and also to name it. Now, also on a whim, I thought it would be a cool idea to have these same friends and I creating new languages all the time, for fun. Then I decided to look up if any one had given steps how to do so. I thank you for the ideas, and want to let you know that I will refer back to this often while creating languages.</p>
