Prou ena Nina
Prou en' nina tanto hormosa
ániman emóu vou na dá
en cutiyou cun dio yamnou
emóu carziá intraba.
Men me mirá; sto yorans,
e cantandon ce cuaisou,
tou gauzia 'mou e tanto gran
non tá possou supportá.
Men tá gauzia 'sou tenei tou, hica
prou ei auba cuomo chia,

For a Girl
For the girl so beautiful
I would give my soul
a double-edged knife
piercing my heart.
Don't look at me; I am crying,
it is singing that I want,
my joy is but so great
I cannot bear it.
Don't withhold your joy, young girl,
for you are white like snow
but there's a darker girl,
who set fire to my heart.

Nuirn nouns: introductionThe Nuirn noun also is clearly marked by the hybrid origins of Nuirn itself, as contact language, cryptolect, and art language.Nuirn nouns: introduction5 months ago in Personal More Like This
There are really only two declensions of Nuirn nouns, and the second declension is rather a catchment of irregularities, and a closed class. The open class encompasses the vast majority of Nuirn nouns. Although it is inaccurate historically, we can call it the "consonant declension", because currently it lacks theme vowels.
Nuirn nouns have two genders: animate and inanimate. There is also a small closed class of relict feminines.
Early Nuirn had four cases: nominative, accusative, genitive, and dative. The accusative was only minimally distinguished from the nominative in the plural in animate nouns, and always the same as the nominative for inanimates. On the other hand, both the dative and genitive cases split. The dative ending acquired a secondary stress when it stood alone, a stress that did not ma
Nuirn: sounds and spellingNuirn is now usually written in the Latin alphabet.Nuirn: sounds and spelling5 months ago in Personal More Like This
When written in the Latin alphabet, Nuirn uses the following characters:
a b c d e f g h i (j k) l m n o p q r s t u v (w) x y z þ æ ø
The characters j and w are not frequently used; the vowels i and u, combined with the grave accent, fulfil the function of representing the sounds of English /y/ and /w/ respectively. The letter k is used chiefly as the second element of the digraph ck, and sk, indicating the English "sh" sound.
Two diacritical marks can appear over vowels. The acute accent:
á é í ó ú ý
originated as an indication of vowel length. In fact, the long vowels differ in articulation as well as in length from their short counterparts. The typical values of a fully pronounced vowel are:
æ /æ, ɛ:/
The low vowels are:
o /o, ʊ/
