and

Conjunctions in Hanian can at times be fun. This is true with the few words used to say and; used to combine concepts together with each other in a sentence. In Hanian ke is a base. It’s used as a combiner, meaning to add without applying force, energy or effort. If one isn’t sure which one to use, simply use ke.

ke“and else”; used as conventional and – [ke]

kezand second, and also; used for groups as connection [kez]
* husband and wife; planet and moonall groups regardless of equal or non equal.

keadand now, and immediately, and this time [ke ; ad]

daukenand then, and after  [dau ; ken]

kenarnow and then, now this and then that, now and later [ke ; nar]

ekevaand / or [e ; ke ; va]
* do both / all, or this is the result; also used as an “and do, or get out of the way”
this is rude.

ekez – and / or also [e ; kez]
*this is kind of to say you can have either or, but you can also choose both.

ten bases

The first ten bases:

What is a base? It’s the smallest fragment of Hanian, each taking several meanings. They are used to create and define words in the language. Without it, you will have a harder time learning the language since about 85% of the words have most of their meaning encoded in these bases. Think of it this way, you use the bases to discover obvious and hidden meanings from words you find in the dictionary. Cool isn’t it?

ti – shining, bright, obvious – pronounce: tih
In many cases ti implies something bright and shining or that is bigger or more obvious.

o – individuality, me, I, voluntary – pronounce oh
o stands for the individual and for actions which are voluntary and not involving force.

va – go, move forward, motion, progress, movement – pronounce vah
It’s a movement and motion base, but is often also used to denote going and progressing.

uz – dark, darkness, night, black – pronounce uz
Anything involving darkness or night or the coloration of black; or the absence of light

ch – awareness, focus, paying attention – pronounce ch
ch base is also used for all elements such as water / fluids, earth / solids, dry, and so forth.

au – time, frequency, vibration, ripples – pronounce ow or au
In all cases it’s involving timing and vibrations, in some cases it can also denotes dimensions / alternatives.

iz – chaos, disorganized, messy – pronounce is
It is everything which is opposite of order; loud and disorderly, crazy and scattered about, damage.

bo – sweet, grow, farm; classification “grower” – pronounce boh
This involves everything with being sweet as well as farming and growing things.

eg – out, exclusive, external, without, out of, pushed out of – pronounce eg
Everything involving the location or determination of out as compared to in or pushed instead of pulled.

dj – structure, building, home, house. architecture – pronounce deye or di (diana)
Anything involving buildings and ones home as well as architectural things.

Learn these bases and you’ll find it much easier to work with words in Hanian. The list also gives you an idea of how diverse the base fragments are in the language. The whole list of bases is called the hoala (ho ; a ; la) which basically means source, beginning, end. Simply: the source / basis from beginning to end.

I’ll post more bases over a period of time to make them easier to learn and will show pronunciations better in Hanian. Once done I’ll show some cool stuff in regards to them, such as how even on larger scales they relate to each other.

Again, if you like this, comment and find two people you think might be interested in this language and send them here.

HanianThe

Hanian does not have gendered nouns, rather they are classified nouns. What form of the is used for them depends on what the word is and how it might be modified. Using the in Hanian and classifications in regards to words is the same thing.  This is kind of hard to explain as it’s so different. There are five different ways of doing this and each of them is used with a different set of words. For nouns ar, az, od and do is used. For nouns with adjectives in the sentence cluster and bi and vef is used. In case of the last one, it’s a bit tricky as it’s attached to the noun. binoun vef adjective.

Hopefully I didn’t loose any readers to confusion yet.

ar is used primarily for things, resources, machines, stuff, insults and things that can’t be classified appropriately.

az is used for holy things, energetic things, time, emotions (positive or neutral ones) and abstract things.

od is used for creatures, natural things, weather, slaves, food, places, negative emotions, body parts and the like.

do is used for people, groups, systems, governments, professions, symbols and so forth.

bi is used for any noun with adjective(s); never for adjectives alone & vef them too!

So just to give a few examples.

the day – would use az – because it’s time based.
the waterfall – would use od – because it’s something natural.
the wise one – would use bi – because it’s preceded by an adjective, it is attached.
the Richter scale – would use do – because it’s a system. (tricky, I know)
the jealousy – would use od – because it’s a negative emotion.
the yellow sun – would use bi – because it’s preceded by an adjective, it is attached.
the stars and stripes – would use do – because it’s a symbol (of a government no less)
the ghost – would use az – because it’s an energetic thing.
the star ship – would use ar – because it’s a technological machine.

Saying it’s yellow, would not receive any of these, as there is no noun there.

Hopefully this helps a little in the strangeness that’s Hanian. Some will be tricky, so if you don’t know the right one, simply use the one closest to it or ar if you really have no earthly idea what you’re doing.
