WIP: Nansha Grammar Sketch by Hestia-Edwards WIP: Nansha Grammar Sketch by Hestia-Edwards
After the discussion with MagicScripts, I was encouraged to submit my WIP of my Nansha grammar sketch. As it currently stands, it is written like a linguistic paper: something linguists (and conlangers) might appreciate and understand, but it is not really suited for the general reading public. I used this style of writing because I thought "that's how it's done", not because I'm comfortable with it. Upon an enlightening discussion with the conlang group on Facebook, I learned that people resort to this style not because they love it, but because they lack better ideas. Laughing 

Since I imagine my character Rosamond Grey writing a how-to book in the Victorian/Edwardian period, the final version will follow a more friendly style to the average reader. It will read like a old-school "how to learn a language" text, and I even how a physical example from the 1920's that will work just right (Italian).  

This is a Constructed Language that first appeared in my comic, Concerning Rosamond Grey. You can refer to the panels that show it:

Though the panels reflect my original intention of having the language read left-to-right. The sequel comic will show the current prototype of right-to-left. 

You can start reading the comic here:
