How To Say Hello In Your Nation's Language

Postby Greenlandic Arctic » Thu Apr 09, 2015 1:36 am

This thread will be where you post 'hello' in your nation's language, alongside other phrases and perhaps the history of your nation's language and how it came about; who wrote the first dictionary; what other countries speak your language.

I will start off.

How are you?-Qanoqat Irpituk?
My name is... - ...inuuk ateqarpungaka
Welcome - Tikilluaritiqu
Goodbye - Ajunnginniarnarqa
Greenlandic Arctic - Kaalisutaarqita

This language, Latter-Inuit Greenlandic, is not dissimilar to the Greenlandic, and any other Inuit, dialects. The language was developed as a way of familiarising Greenlandic and the Inuit dialects to the Yupik languages of Alaska and Siberia. The language was developed by the Inuit Ataqatigiit party when in power (particularly the propagandist Kuupik Nielsen, who was named as the author of the first dictionary), as a way of distancing Greenlanders from the Danish, as many Danish words had entered the Greenlandic vocabulary, and to try and recognise the newly-formed alliance of Greenland with other separatist Arctic communities. Although Inuit Ataqatigiit was later toppled by a coup developed by soldiers during the Baffin Island War, Latter-Inuit Greenlandic remains the official language of Greenlandic Arctic. Although Latter-Inuit Greenlandic is not spoken elsewhere, all other independent Arctic nations speak Latter-Inuit languages, which are very similar to Latter-Inuit Greenlandic.

English: Welcome
Swedish: Välkommen
Esperanto: Bonvenon

English: Goodbye
Swedish: Adjö
Esperanto: Adiaŭ

Our language evolved into English and Swedish (by means of trade, immigration, diplomacy and ethnic roots from Swedes and Englishpeople). Esperanto is a recent add-on being pushed by the Northern Kingdom government.

I use Monster Girl Encyclopedia (although set on modern time) as a medium for roleplay (my nation is not limited to it, though). I am an MT nation (set in today), with experimental and a few functioning PMT technology. My nation is when Sweden smokes much weed, takes much LSD, takes up more arms than normal, and dates a monster girl (mamono).

The Spanish spoken in the Glorious Republic of Uruguay, castellano uruguayo, is not the same as regular Spanish. Instead of tu/vos for informal you and usted for formal you, we only use vos because we believe everyone is equal. The grammar rules are also simpler in castellano uruguayo than regular Spanish.

The official language is French however we have a creolized dialect mostly spoken instead of the formal version.
Here are the creole responses:
Hello -- Si Dío
How are you? -- Comment ça vam? or ça vam?
My name is... -- Me nôm suìs... or Me prénôm suìs..
Welcome - Bienvenue
Goodbye - Zoha [Cheers] or Au revoir or Tchayo [Tchau]
