I’m moving this weekend and won’t have internet for the entire next week, so if I completely disappear, that’s what happened!
But I bet I’ll get lots of writing done
Anonymous asked: Yes, YES, all the PSoG. Yaaas good idea. ya. yaaaa man (◕‿◕✿)
hahaha, glad it sounds like a good idea~!
so I had this idea for a little one-shot/side story to PSoG just because I was reading over it again to prep for editing and I know the ending was unsatisfying to a lot of people because they never told their parents or anything and it just kind of ended
so like I started writing a little story taking place in the summer right after the school year. won’t be very long (ahahaha I KNOW. well it’s not PLANNED to be long) and I can probably finish it in like a week or so
More alphabet time! Pronunciation here mostly.
Aaaaand disclaimer: I’m really not a linguist. I’ve just studied a bunch of languages and read up about shit and only mildly know what I’m doing.
So Isji has no real sounds for w, z, qu, th, or sh (I think I forgot to mention there’s no sh in the previous version of this post). There is sort of a z sound created by the double j, but it’s really a voiced palato-alveolar fricative that sounds like the ‘si’ in vision. (The IPA symbol would be ʒ). That’s as close to a z that they get. A u and an i together almost kind of make a w sound, but not exactly. There’s no q/qu sound at all, since there’s no real w there isn’t much a of ‘kwa’ sound to make. A t and an h, or an s and an h, next to each other in a word are always pronounced individually, so it’d be like if we pronounced the like ‘tuh-he’ or shoot like ‘suh-hoot’ (with the first syllable not being emphasized very heavily). There technically are two h’s in the language, one is a vowel and one is a consonant, and the vowel-h being paired with a t or s doesn’t make a th or sh sound either, but it’s less drastic of a difference in voicing the individual sounds because it’s more of an aspirated back-of-throat noise.
It’s just so pretty and fancy looking :D Looks like legit text in another language, too. If I didn’t know I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between it and an actual language in use by hundreds of thousands of people.
that is cool to hear~! at some point (it must be in the rewrites, I can’t remember anymore) Alan gets a thought where he’s seeing some of it written and basically goes ‘looks like it could be in an IKEA manual’. Glad that seems like a legit thing then :)
