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.
Alberic of Krufton
this uses the genitive of "krufton" to mean "of krufton"
(adj.) having the qualities of a master; boss-like
if you take off the last glyph (the gakuda), it's "em" /em/
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.
(n.) [[I haven't figured out what it means in real words yet but the top is masculine and the bottom is feminine and they basically mean Hound and Selena (like, the relationship they have to each other).]]
(n.) [of a female] lover, beloved; see also zinghi (Lord Zy)
"fer" means "man" or "lord"
(n.) [of a male] lover, beloved; see also kendirá (Kendra)
(n.) sparkle; glitter
morsuaer /morsueir/ (pronounced more-sue-where)
mufer /mufer/ ** it's supposed to say mufet but i hecked up because i can never remember my ******** verb endings
(v.) to yell, especially at someone or something
it might be pronounced /ðu/ instead, but i don't have a glyph for /ð/
(n.) a craftsman or crafter
(the top one is masculine, the bottom is feminine)
smutty cannibal prince
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
t o l e k s z i
using the /ʃ/ instead of /s/ makes it more apparent that the last sound is an /i/ and not an /ə/ or /e/
zonghirehi = "one who dreams"
new but not borrowed: dreamer
(v.) to paint
(from all your talk of Painted)
