But those are pronunciations. (Or romanizations?)
How would you actually write it in Retfon and Holxûs?


Here's the Holxûs, with Comvìla as an added bonus!



Note that "j" in Comvìla is like the Spanish "j" or "x" and that "c" is pronounced as "k".

Vortex and Imbecilica;
Thanks for the romanizations.
Can you also write that in the native orthographies of your conlangs -- that is, in your conscripts?

Well I have to get back to you on that one because my scanner isn't hooked up. But I have a new script that I am proud and it will be it's first showing in public.

Now I did this quickly on paint. I don't it does much justice to my script but it will have to do untill my scan starts working.

@Vortex; it actually looks pretty good. If that doesn't do justice to your script, I really want to see your script when you can show it to us!

Thanks, to you and to everyone else who has written it.

Since I've just learned what Cthulhu is I thought I'd give this a try, according to the IPA pronunciation on Wikipedia. Very Happy

Tadváradcel: cthẅthlu [kθʊθlu:]
Hemnälg: ce-llu-llu [kəɬuɬu] - /ll/ is [ɬ] only word-initially, thus the hyphens.
Ualaxx: ...maybe gəsulu [qəsulu]

In Emitare (as in the other thread), it comes out Kulhulhu (kM'KMKM).

That looks really funny in X-SAMPA.
