Mando'a Lesson 10Mando'a Lesson 10Mando'a Lesson 105 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
I want to center this post around verbs (conjugating and tenses and the like) because I haven't focused on them the way I should have with the other lessons. Since I was learning myself, it was a lot easier to start with nouns, and learn to rattle those off first, instead of slowly building sentences and workable conversation.
The lesson will be in regular text, I will put round brackets around notes from me, and square brackets around direct "lesson quotes" from Karen Traviss' Grammar Guide. (Which of course, can be found on her webpage, and I highly recommend reading it.)
Similar to most European languages, Mando'a verbs end in either ar, er, ir, or, or ur. Removing the r from the verb produces the stem.
(This is something I think I was forgetting when I tried to conjugate my verbs in previous lessons. Oh, how fun it is to teach oneself. KT could probably make a fortune offering a cla

This lesson is going to focus on adjectives and adverbs, because I've only been tossing in descriptive words occasionally throughout these lessons. (And it was harder to create that I realized it would be. Forget learning new languages, I may have to go back to school to relearn my English!)
Like the lesson on verbs, the lesson will be in regular text, round brackets will surround notes from me, and square brackets will be around direct "lesson quotes" from Karen Traviss' Grammar Guide. (Which can be found on her webpage, and I highly recommend downloading it for personal use.)
(Working from a list of common English adjectives and adverbs, I have compiled these lists I will have obviously missed words in the dictionary, please just bear with me.)
[Adjectives and adverbs are formed by the addition of the suffix -la or -yc, depending on which makes pronunciation easier. There is only one form of the adjecti

only the chill howl of the wind
against cold flesh, raw heart, dark soul.
He stumbles, blind, tears freezing
as soon as fallen, sobs torn from
his aching, hollow breast.
Roots reach out to seize him
and he crashes to the earth,
a latter-day Lucifer.
Nothing is clear, save his guilt,
the overwhelming guilt in his heart.
He knows he deserves this exile.
He lies, broken, spent,
staring at bloodstained palms
unable to tell in his madness
that the blood is his own.
The wind cuts and burns,
freezes and torments
until it fills the world.
He hears it screaming:
A Mandalorian Wanted to CryThen, for the first time , grasping that for every man, and himself, too, there was nothing in store but suffering, death, and forgetfulness, he had made up his mind that life was impossible like that, and that he either must either interpret life so that it would not present itself to him as the evil jest of some devil, or shoot himself.A Mandalorian Wanted to Cry6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
- Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
A Mandalorian wanted to cry, but he was afraid he had forgotten how.
Tears were weakness, tears weathered flesh like battles. Now when he craved erosion, he had forgotten how to cry. The unreleased tears were stone in his chest, dragging him under with the sound of dry thunder.
The lightsaber rested in his hand as solid as his longings and heavy as his grief. It was cold and lifeless against his bare palm, colder still as he shifted it to his gauntlet. He had never thought it possible for something so small to weigh him down so much.

Then where on the fracking hairy arse of a wookie was her serenity??
Aniki hurled another rock into the gentle waves of the Rakatan sea, the light splash mocking the turmoil that simmered in her chest. Her eyes followed the fiery streaks that lit up the night sky smaller pieces of the Star Forge and countless Sith and Republic ships burning up as they struck the small planets atmosphere. Oblivious to the chaos in the sky, and in the core of the lone Jedi whose toes were barely within reach, the sea moved calmly, a slow, peaceful rhythm rising with the new tide, drawn and directed by the compressed mass of death and metal above.
The crimson streaks above flickered across the dark, bowed head of Aniki Revan, Dark Lord of the Sith, smuggler, Jedi,

Luke Skywalker was having one of those days.
His vision was slightly blurred, but he was walking at a steady pace, not missing a single step in the form of march he had learned. It kept him ready for action without exhausting him too much, while giving him a fair amount of speed.
He could feel the force all around him, in the air, in the ground, beneath his feet. Everywhere. And he felt it so close to him so close almost as if he could reach out and grab it, hold it in his arms.
Luke carried on walking. It was some time in the afternoon, by the look of the sun. He looked closer. No, not the sun, the suns. There were two suns, one of them setting, the other one rising. Almost like Tatooine, Luke thought with a laugh.
Suddenly, he felt very strange. He was walking through the Tatooine desert. Luke thought hard, and suddenly he realized he couldn't remember where he was. Where he had been, was more like it.
He spotted some Tusken Raiders gath

avoiding the eyes of her thousand faceted reflections
as she stumbles and falls, cutting scarlet grooves
into ash dusted fingers (The only colour in this limbo).
The ground is sharp glass, cruel and unforgiving.
She feels that the very earth opposes her step.
She struggles to her feet; gasping for a breath of
fresh air and breathing only death; and runs ever onwards.
Shes chasing a dream but finding reality.

My skull screams in pain,
As the human static gains.
Free, free I long to be,
From this ailment suffered by me.
Like a hammer striking the steel,
The noise lays siege to my ears.
My head feels ready to burst,
For my blessing is also my curse.
I can't really smell the sweet scents,
But I hear the smallest footsteps.
This gives the noise greater power,
So I feel the urge to cower.
When the shouts turn brazen,
I start looking for a haven.
I avoid the vociferous crowd,
For their volume is way too loud.
My head feels ready to burst,
For my blessing is also my curse.
