Description

The Calconian language is a pidgin language, based from English, German, Dutch, Russian, and others. The King of Calcon created this language on January or February 2016. There are rare records of the earliest versions of the speech, but there is Middle Kalkoni. That version was around September 5, 2017. It had mood markers, t as negative and m as positive. The letter a would fill in between consanants to make it more of a word. However, the leader did not like how repetitive it looked for all the words. Some other changes included /k/ being represent with c and k. The letter c was more of a Latin letter, more of a style.


The j was more of /d͡ʒ/ sound. There are 152 base words total in this language. The õ sound is supposed to represent on, like a nasalized o, or the French word of he/it: on. on April 24, 2018, the King announced that Kalkoni, or Calconian, will eventually diverge by June. The Ê represents the [ə] sound whilst É for [e]. The E represents [ɛ]. The q in Kalkoni is pronounced /q/, a k as in cough. Other letters like c, which is [c] or kj whilst x is like a h. The language is slightly glottal, with q, x, and h. As of December 13, 2018, there are around 117 words, with 57% of them being native, second Russian with around a quarter.


Calconian vowels are: A, E, É, Ê, I, O, U, Y, Ã, Õ, and Ę. The last 3 are nasal vowels of A, O, and E respectively. Any letter with a line over it is either an emphasis on the letter or inscribed from foreign terms. The Y is pronounced like /y/, which is like the German vowel ü and French u(not ou, which is /u/). On June 8, 2019, Caleb Lowman has decided to make /c/ into just k, writted as k, not c. The letters Å and Î were added in August/September of the same year, representing the vowels /ɒ/ and /ɪ/ respectfully. Then, some words were added to the language that were particularly unique, like wužima, winnê, mikopo, and åskum. However, by the spring of 2020, the monarch has decided it was too "mutted up", as he putted in his own words, given there is no direct line it can be traced back to.
