Verd'landian language (Verd'landian: Vẽrdɩlandiɩ Spriga or Vẽrdȴlandiȴ Spriga) was de-facto constructed a posteriori language, created by Vladislav Chokin to serve the fictional Verd'landian universe. Hovewer, when he founded Vladislavia, he had accepted this language as official one continuing to develop it.

Verd'landian used to consist of the basic set of grammar rules and about 2000 words. At the late times of existence the development of language and adding of new lexic was slowed down and nearly stopped till the November of 2019 when the CSV file with all the vocabulary base was destroyed during the failed attempt to replace letters in all words in accordance to new ortography rules ("Y Event"). After that the author declared the language abandoned as to that moment it almost completely went out of usage with possibility of slow lexics restoration because the CSV file remained relatively readable for manual reconstruction and reedition.

6th April of 2020 was declared to be a day of official Verd'landian language's death.

In some areas, Verd'landian was similar with Romanian, Albanian and German languages.

Official status

Verd'landian language was official in Vladislavia and Verd'land.

Grammar description

Morphosyntactic alignmentMorpheme-based
Head directionInitial
Constituent orderSVO

Grammar of Verd'landian was not very original as consisted of English and Russian grammar attributes. The second ones are noticeable in sentence morphing: despite preferred order (SVO) exists, it is flexible.


The only article in language was "", which is definite. Its usage was not required, but it can emphasize separation of given object from other parts of sentence.


Nouns could be original or converted from verbs. They are inflected by number and three cases. Language had 3 genders: masculine, feminine and neutral, and the last one is factually not usable.


Usually are created by adding of the "yɩ" or "iɩ" suffixes only.


Verbs, as nouns, could be original or converted (which is rare case) and conjugated by 4 tenses, 2 voices and 2 moods only. Original tense of verb is present, and infinitive (so called "neutral") verbs had very small amount and de-facto could be converted from verbs in present tense (usually - for using in jussive mood). There were no continuous and perfect tenses - exact sense needs to be defined by context of said.

Advanced lexic


Verd'landian alphabet was based on Latin script with diacritical letters to sign sounds foreign for Latin. It was reformed on 17 August 2017 to abandon Slavic and Romanian letters.

Besides this, other alphabets were being developed but none of the another writing systems were finally adopted.

The "i skurtyɩ" letter has two ways of writing: the first one (Ɩ ɩ) is the common, while second one (Ь ȴ) is maximally copying hand-written style of letter and is supposed to be used in official sources, literature and culture.

As in German, bigger numbers are shaping by apposition of them to each element of spoken amount. They have their own order - from bigger to smaller - which shouldn't be confused in any case, as incorrect position of elements will create another number.

Verd'landian language has rules of years scoring, which is similar to English or, in example, Czech. It allows division of four-digit number on pair of two-digit ones. It is preferable to years before XXI century only, because modern numbers will be shorter with standard morphing.
