Special Terms;

 

Drell - Drell means to form a wide line, spread across the halls to the right and left.

Drinni - Drinni means to form a cue-type line.

Khrum - Khrum usually means “All” in the abstract terms of all the creations of Yemekar (Grobi, Umgi, Ork, Elger, and Kharajyr [in a way] ) Usually a Dwarf would use this word to refer to the planet, by adding the city prefix (Kal’Khrum), which would also stand for the continent in which the Dwarves stood for that moment. However, there is also a continent, or world prefix (Khor’), but this term emerged after a need to name the several continents discovered, and should be thought of as a contemporaneous term.

Tagum - This term means "Stark Raving Mad", used for Dwarves who behave oddly all of a sudden, these dwarves should be terminated swiftly as their disease and behaviour proves pandemic.

Vel can also be used to denote “March”, by adding the verb to it.

Vel - Vel is used as a command in military aspects, it is the word to commanding Dwarves to form a line or formation, and depending on the word used before it, defines which line is to be formed:

-’th - This term, in english, is -’s.

 

Time - To use the Time Tense, you must denote the verb, or word you are conjugating after denoting the time tense begins, Like;

“Suffix Past + Word ->” Will denote that all things following the word, unless used another time suffix, will be in that time tense.

 

Tenses;

 

  • Past = Yno- / Yllor-

  • Present = Aina- / Khirn

  • Future = Enn / Ea-

  • Perfect (Added after the time suffix and before the word.) = -Nairon- / -Naerk-

 

Examples;

 

“Yno’K'az tira khrum lakh.”

“I worked all day.”

 

“Yno’nairon’Thaaz merumm tira’geron khrum lakh.”

“I have been working all day.”

Didn't someone make a translator?

It was outdated, offline, and Lingojam is not really a trustable translator, if anyone makes one that's reliable and one I can update, sure! 

 

Also, Dwarven Grammar is not English Grammar, which can lead to some serious problems in translation.

Mr, there is no word for 'Is' or 'On' might be worth adding?

Be + posessive = Is - Which means you can use moredos as is.

 

What type of "On" do you mean? If it's "on something" you can simply use morred (Above).
