Nissiian (in nissiian Niyīmal) is a Boyoheum languages semi-inflective language that is one of the official languages of the United States of Mekniy. It is one of the most advanced languages in Central European micronational space. The language is standardized by the Mekniyan National University of Nakāl Hanunkx.

History of Nissiian

Modern Nissian language is based on the new Nissian language, a language that dates back to protoboyoheum, a theoretical language that is ancestor to, in addition to Nissian, Radoslavic Jesenian. Praboyoheumian was referred as the language of proto-Mekniyans in the legend of Ojineo. The language was strongly related to Celtic languages. In the legend, the language is referred to as "mōdnumida", linguists assume that the word mōdnu comes from Korean 모듬 (modeum - mixed), the word "mida" was used to refer to proto-Mekniyans. The language was then separated from proto-Jesenian in approximately the 1st century AD. Further development meant the separation of the Niyi and Esagitiyeo branches, which, however, died out and was replaced by Niyi-Esagitiyeo branch. The new, Niyi-influenced, Esagitiye branch separated again later. The Niyi branch was divided into two sub-branches, the Tyormyar and Niyimyal (Thornian and Nissian). In modern times there are two languages in the esagitiyeo branch, lower and higher esagitian and three languages in the Nissian branch, Nissian, Thornian, Konissiian and Nissian-dialect Bobanian.


Nissian, as already mentioned, is based on the theoretical boyoheumian language. According to linguists fro the University of Nākal Hanunkx, the boyoheum language mōdnumida (sometimes written módejda in the Radoslavic context) was a Celtic language that could have been strongly influenced by the old Korean language, especially in the Ilbunila and Beurgila lands.

Celtic theory

The Celtic ground theory is based on the strong similarity of Nissian to today's insular Celtic languages (Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Manx, Breton, etc.). Linguists assume that when the retinue of Hanunkx arrived, Bohemia and Moravia were inhabited by the original inhabitants - Celts - Boii tribe. This could mean that today's Nissian, Jesenian, Loryngian, etc. can be direct descendants of the original Boii language. Also noteworthy is the similarity to Latin, which is related to Celtic languages.

Ejivoyo - vowels

Standard (standard) Nissiian distinguishes between 15 + 3 basic vowel phonemes, 4 diphthongs and 8 glottalized diphthongs. These sounds include:

  • Vowels: a, e, i, o, u, ea, ae, eo, eu
  • Long vowels: ā, ē, ī, ō, ū
  • Soft (patalized) vowels: yae (ye), yeo, yeu
  • Diphthongs: ai, ei, ao, oa (today replaced by hwa)
  • Glotalized diphthongs: aa, ee (aee), ii, oo (eoo), uu (euu)

In closed vowels (e, o, u), the form of voices is often applied in ordinary speech, where closed vowels are pronounced openly (eg the word jon - jeon, du pessae kloreuNi - deu paessae kleoreuNi). In modern Nissian, glottalized diphthongs, which are pronounced unglotalized with an accent, also undergo assimilation. Glotalized pronunciation is required in Sacred Nissian.

Pxangavoyo - consonants

In modern standard Nissian, consonants are divided into the so-called ssalmeol (table of characters). Each line corresponds to the phonological attributes of the given phoneme.

px tx kx
p t k pp tt kk
b d g bb dd gg
m n ng mm nn
s c h ss cc
sh ch j
sx cx x
r l y rr ll yy
rh v hw vv

Ssalmeol roughly resembles the classical division of vowels used by linguists.

Nissian is officially written in the Nissian alphabet (alpabaeta, formerly ababeba). It is written in ssalba in traditional and spiritual documents, some states (Niyi, Esagitia) still use ssalba.

Two Nissiian orthographies

Nowadays, Nissian is written in two ways, an old orthography (gerleuNi eokxeivaeNun / ē gerlūī Eokxaeivaen) and a reformed new orthography that seeks to capture Nissian as it is spoken (ē shieobōī Eokxeivaen). Officially, only the old orthography is used, the movement ma hwanida merōī N ad Antōn (I want a simple N at the end) is trying to enforce a reformed orthography next to the old one, which corresponds to the notation of ssalba.

New orthography often brings the use of more accents, such as dots above and below letters and the reduction of graphemes.


Nissiian is a semi-inflected language (partly flective) that expresses sentence structure through flexion and many conjunctions. Its syntax is partly reminiscent of, for example, German, or a close language, Irish. The word order is similar to Czech.

Word order

The word order of Nissian is, similarly to Czech, free. Nissian is a so-called pro-drop language, which means that in a sentence it is enough to be just a verb, another sense clarifies the prefixes and suffixes of the verb.

  • Mānnnoseon ākgyeuixan mēmsōmeun - The man ate meat
  • Mānnnoseon mēmsōmeun ākgyeuixan - The man ate meat (man meat ate)
  • Mēmsōmeun ākgyeuixan mānnnoseon - The man ate meat (the meat was eaten by a man)
  • Mēmsōmeun mānnnoseon ākgyeuixan - The man ate meat (meat man ate)
  • Ākgyeuixan mēmsōmeun mānnnoseon - The man ate meat (ate meat man)
  • Ākgyeuixan mānnnoseon mēmsōmeun - The man ate meat (ate man meat)
  • Ākgyeuixan mānnnoseon mēmsōmeun? - Did the man eat meat?

Nissian hwanida-kii onda-tti daekvvang-eun yoddei Suvulin leiyae-kau
Gloss want-3.PL to visit-INF university-SG.NOM where Suvulin go-3.SG
English I want to visit the university, that Suvulin attends

Word types

Nissian distinguishes 10 word types,

  • flective
    • inflect - noun (ē nyaaneul), pronoun (ē kxonol)
    • inflecting and escalating - adjectives (ē boonyaaneul)
    • tense - verbs (ē kosemidal)
  • non-flective – numerals (ē aritōl), adverbs (kxahyessal), prepositions (antīmidal), conjunctions (ē seryemidal), particles (prsiyaetōmeul) and interjections (eoxesoyael)

Noun gender

Nissian distinguishes two genders, masculine (hard, kreumli) and feminine (soft, nyaeli), the middle gender occurs only in pronouns. The genus can be recognized by the last vowel of the root, in the case of a vowel it is feminine, on the contrary it is masculine, ie: shilo - feminine, ddēmon - masculine, etc. The gender in Nissian is not very important, as it is in Czech, for example.


Nissian distinguishes 4 noun cases, nominative, genitive, dative and vocative, which are used in the declension of nouns, pronouns and, in part, adjectives. The basic form of names is the nominative of the singular number, in rare cases the basic form can also be the root.

Verbs and verb tenses
