WORDS WITH EXTENDED CASE

kitaru = ‘ki’ not only forms part of ‘spirit’ but on its own translates as “is”. thus kitaru has been (perhaps contentiously) translated in multiple ways:

short form literal (ki. ta. ru.)
“spirit blood returns”
various short form interpretations
“return of the spiritual body”
“return of charity”
“return of grace”
long form interpreted (kotaru > kitaru)
“blood imbued with spirit”
Yunish translation as “state of Is” blood

money = ruboji (lit. translates as ‘mr. green’ a color which in yunish, like english, is considered symbolic of jealousy). a popular slang word for money ‘jiwa’ translates awkwardly into english as “Mister”. It perhaps originates from Yunish merchants screaming “Jiwa! Jiwa!” to male passerby). The word for gold, ‘rim’ can also be used to refer to money in general.

GRAMMAR

Most yunish words lack gender and tense. These are usually added through the use of a suffix.

i (‘little me’, ‘ego’, ‘the person I believe I am’) = o, oda
I (‘big me’, Awareness, Allness) = EHVE
*I am / ‘My nature is’ = irino
you = sute
we = wa’n, pær
other = di
name = adve

this = sal
that = salumn
the = de / u

all / everything = zhen vu
most – zansi
some – ilna
little – roo
very litte – roozan
none – idi

is = ki
was / were / once = wa’nta / wa’ny (or just ‘ny used as a suffix)
? = es qa
such / very = tu, shæ
extremely = tuzan, shæzan

HOW TO DENOTE OWNERSHIP

mine / my = otsu, datsu
yours = sutetsu
ours = wa’ntsu, *paesu
others’ = ditsu
*belonging to no one=itsu
*belonging to all = ehtsu, ehvetsu

yes = nago, na
no = bee

for / to = fen
from = setsu, chinuika
with = hum
and = ju
have = pareem
have not = ipareem
more = na (a little more = naroon, a LOT more = nazan)
less = il (a little less = *i’roon, a LOT less = ilzan)

SUFFIXES

Yunish words can be drastically altered through suffixes, a limited number of which are reproduced here:

ownership = “tsu” (thus: my = otsu, your = sutetsu)
physical manifestation = “wa” (thus: ehvewa = form)
color = “ku” / “el”
sound = “lim” / “lima/ *”elin”

place / land = “oh” / “fa” (thus: naioh = “land of peace”, taifa = “people’s land”) The name Taifa can be written in a slang, derogitory fashion since its letters “ta i fa” (taken separately) could translate as “land of a dark form”

*suffix for way = “si” (thus: idisi = way of nothingness)

suffix for confirmation = “go”
suffix for low intensity = “roon”
suffix for high intensity = “zan”
suffix for place = “eb” or “n eb” (depending on number) For example, “3rd Place” would be “Goan Eb” but “4th place” would just be “Sin Eb”

SUFFIXES FOR NAMES

names (masculine) = “gan” / “ji” / “ri” / “ren” (masculine). These suffixes often mean “bringer” or “examplar” and are used to turn words into names (Ibri = humble prince, Zangan = big boy, Jan’el = golden boy, Joren = father’s son)
names (feminine) = “am” / “ai” / “la” / “ko” Thus: Naila = bringer of peace, Iriam = little lady, Vaila = beautiful one, Aisako = lovely river

PREFIXES

Less used but possible is the use of prefix in word creation or alteration. Prefixes are often used in names.

Iri = little
Ba / Zan = large
Nai = peaceful
Ib / Dinu = humble, real

COLORS

Suffixes denoting color = “ku” / “el”
Color Spectrum = zendi ku, mera zanku

black – idiwa
white – ehvewa
red – saku, tawa
orange – rujanel
yellow – waku
green – jael
blue – boku, botsu
indigo – sabel**, sabeku
violet – hael, haniku

COLOR DESCRIPTIONS:

red = saku (literal), tawa (color of blood)
blue = boku (color of water)
white/light = ehwa / ehvewa (manifestation of allness)
black/darkness = idiwa (manifestation of nothingness)

SOUND

silence – idiam
music = eloiam
suffixes denoting sound = “am” “lima/ “lin”

C – salima
D – jan’am
E – fuwalin
F – jalin
G – bolima
A – sabel**
B – haniel

A NOTE ON COLOR AND SOUND:

Interestingly, in Yunish the color spectrum and diatonic music scale were arranged in parallel. thus the musical note ‘salima’ (‘C’) could translate as ‘the sound of saku’ and conversely the color ‘saku’ (‘red’) could translate as ‘the color of salima’. Even more unusual, the word ‘sabel’ can in fact refer either to a note (‘A’) or a color (‘indigo’) and its meaning must be taken from context.

*SPECIAL CASE (in construction or meaning)
** can refer to both the color purple and the note A
