Let’s talk strange…
O Baderus noderus ki du esso in seluma. […]
Carpophorophilus was invented by a German philosopher.
His real name is not known. This language had a reduced alphabet which excluded the letters p, t, and v,
and also dispensed with c, j, q, w, x, y, and z: thus 16 letters. It was based mostly on Latin,
but incorporated elements from other languages. For example, the plural suffix was borrowed from Hebrew: -im.
Thus the word for “house” was domus (cf. Latin domus), and the word for “houses” was domusim.
Verbs were completely regular. All present tense verbs ended in the suffix -o.
Imperfect verbs ended in -abam (cf. Latin). The imperative was formed with -ade (cf. Latin -ate).
The past participle ended in -adus (cf. Latin -atum).
Other suffixes were used to derive nouns from verbs in a fully regular fashion:
orno = to adorn (verb)
ornanda = ornament (noun describing object)
ornadus = adorned (participle)
ornalis = ornamental (adj)
ornalanda = ornamentation (noun describing action) “
Example: the Lord’s Prayer
O Baderus noderus ki du esso in seluma,
fakdade sankadus ha nominanda duus,
adfenade ha rennanda duus,
ha folanda duus fiassade felud in seluma,
sik koke in derra.
Ho banisa noderus diessalis dade du nobis in hik diessa;
ed remiddade du nobis ho debandaim noderus,
felud nos remiddo hi debanasaim noderus;
ed non indukade du nobis in dendassanda;
sed liberade nobis e malanda.
