A Journal of Totally Possible Things as opposed to a journal of impossible things, which this is not

ok here's how this works. for each username (in bold) there's one, maybe two pictures, a transcription into regular letters, and then an ipa-ish transcription, followed by the meaning and any notes. also they've been alphabetized by username.
- usernames have been transcribed phonetically*. if i hecked up, let me know, unless there's a note on why i did it that way.
- if you have a "long-i" sound in your name (as in define), it got changed to a "long-e" sound (as in meet) because that's the way things is.
- if you have an L in your name, it got changed to an R because that's the way things is.
- if you have an a in your name and it falls in an unstressed syllable, it's probably pronounced as a schwa.
- if you have numbers in your username i left them off.

*usernames with actual nouns in them are sometimes partially or fully calqued, which means i translated instead of transcribed all or part of the username. if i didn't calque you, it's because i have nothing even remotely close to any of the words in your username.

General Phade

fer-faed /fer-feid/
there isn't a word for "general" and "general" is a b***h to transcribe but "fer" means "man" or "lord" so it's semantically sorta close. i'll try again if i ever come up with military terms.

smutty cannibal prince
User Image
smuti-jonov-nánghigehi-enfan-feonone /smuti-jonov-naŋhɪgehi-enfən-feonone/
the double tildes break up the whole nouns; the single tildes break up the bits inside the nouns. this literally is a borrow of "smutty" + "one who eats people" + "child of king" (aka prince). thanks for giving me THE LONGEST NAME EVER.
new but not borrowed: eater, prince, cannibal, king
