Regulated by Kømítah dé Hødinisch Schprahche

Hodish is a Germanic language. It is a conlang being constructed by Duke Dylan I of the Duchy of Hodiny. Below is the alphabet, and a sample text can be found on the wiki page Duchy of Hodiny. The current form is called Modern Reformed Hodish. Written out, it is to a degree mutually intelligible with English, but when spoken it isn't as easily translated. It is gradually moving away from English, and more towards German. Duke Dylan has said before about Hodish, "My goal is to make it a rough sounding language, like German." Hodish is regulated by the KHS, also called the Kømítah dé Hodinisch Schprahche. MR Hodish has 30 letters, and Duke Dylan is working on creating a conscript version of Hodish for anyone to learn.

Evolution of Hodish

Hodish has been in construction since mid-2013, before Hodiny existed. It started as a mainly gibberish language named Dylanian. It looked something like this from what little records have been gathered:

Hæ. I æmpf Dylan, wænd I æmpf mākn na lāňgwij kold Dylanian.

Translation: Hi. I am Dylan, and I am making a language called Dylanian.

Dylanian became Zylandian after a code attempt made by the rebels in the Springfield Revolution. It became Centish after that, and soon Ërsten, which was renamed Old Hodinian.

English to Centish

English: Hello. My name is Dylan Emborough, and I am writing in a language called Hodish. I made this language.

Dylanian: Hæ. Mersh nām ix Dylan Emborough, wænd I æmpf riteeň inna lāňgwij kold Hodish. I māded thish lāňgwij.

Zylandian: Hei. Mein naam iz Dylan Emborough, vand Ii bim riiteeňg inna lāngtheeňg kold Hodish. I maad tis lāngtheeňg.

Centish: Hi. Mei naamnə əz Dylan Emborough, vand Ii bəm riiteeňg ən ə laaňgwijtheeňg kold Hodish. Ii maad dis laaňgwijtheeňg.

(Language abandoned till 2014ish)

Old Hodinian/Oold Hoodineein: Heloo. Mii naam iz Dilin Embroo, aand Ii aam riiteeng in u laangwi|\ käld Hoodißh. Ii maad þis laangwi|\.

New Hodinian/Nū Hoodinēin: Heloo. Mī nām iz Dilin Embřoo, ānd Ī ām řītīň in ə lāňgvi|\ khäld Hoodiš. Ī mād þis lāňgvi|\.

(Language abandoned till October 2015)

Hodish

Old Hodish/Ältu Hoodißh: Häloo. Mee'saa nämä es Dilin Embroo, aand Ii aam reet'eeng in aa laang nämä't Hoodißh. Ii mäkä't þis laang.

Middle Hodish/Mitl Hødixh: Salü. Më'sé nåmå es Dilin Embrø, ë Î ém rët'ëng in é léng nåmå't Hødixh. Î måkå't þis glheþ.

Modern Hodish/Mødairn Hødin'léng: Hålø. Mijn nåmå es Dilin Embrø, ë Ik bin rët'ëng in glheþ nåmå't Hødin'léng. Ik måkå't dås glheþ.

Modern Reformed Hodish/Mødern Réfohrm't Hødinisch: Hålø. Mijn Nahmå es Dilin Emborø, ünd Ich bin hrø'ung ahn Schprahche nahmå't Hødinisch. Ich mahkå't dås Schprahche.

Dialects and Offshoots

Zln

Zln used to be Middle Hodish for slang, but it has now evolved into meaning lazy, a name that quite befits this dialect, more like a language now due to its decreasing similarity to Hodish, especially with the introduction of MR Hodish. Here is a sample of Zln:

Hlø. Mij nåmuz Dilin Embrø, ëjijm rëdëng in glheþ nåmåt Zln.

This one is an offshoot dialect of Middle Hodish/Mitl Hødixh. It retains many of the same spellings, except this is the most widespread version of what was at the time Hodish due to the inability of many people to pronounce Hodish right. Zln for Hodish Language is Hødixh Léng

Hødsrilik

This is a version of Hodish (offshoot of Modern Hodish (not MR Hodish)) written in the Cyrillic script. The only thing different is the way it is written and a few tweaks to how it sounds. Otherwise it sounds a lot like Modern Hodish.

Ånlæhån

Ånlæhån is an official language of Fredeliglan (now named Anlehan, after the language). This one was meant to be based off Middle Hodish but also bring back some Old English elements. Written out, you didn't have to know any of it to be able to figure out what it says if you know English well enough. This was created by Fredeliglan's President Lily. Ånlæhån was split into two different dialects that were quite different, but still mostly mutual intelligible. Ånlæhån for Hodish Language is Hödiš Lång. Ånlæhån's two dialects, Åmlædåm and Mådrn Ånlaahån, both have different ways of pronouncing Hodish Language.

  • Åml: Dödiš Låmg
  • Måd Ånl: Hødiš Låň

Ā/É and Ē/Í

A new rule in Hodish respelled many words. It replaced the Romance É and Germanic Í with the Baltic Ā and Ē, respectively. It is a source of controversy. One proposal is to make the two variants different languages. If so, this new one with Ā and Ē would be called Baltodish.

Baltodish

Baltodish is the proposed dialect of Modern Reformed Hodish with Baltic elements.

Baltodish: Ēch mahkå't dahs Schprahche. Dahs Schprahche es nahmå't Hødinisch. Prēmrē farvēātn'n es Ā ünd Ē.

MR Hodish: Ich mahkå't dahs Schprahche. Dahs Schprahche es nahmå't Hødinisch. Prímrí farvíétn'n es É ünd Í.

Kømítah dé Hødinisch Schprahche

The Kømítah dé Hødinisch Schprahche is the regulating body of the Hodish language. It's literal translation is Committee of Hodish Language. It used to be 'Kømëtå dé dj Hødixh Léng', but the word for 'the' was taken out, and the spelling reordered. It's two members are Dylan Emborough and Nick Kaos. Dylan Emborough is also a member of Flaré's regulating body.
