Styles of Speaking (based on preference):
!

Iberian Style: The ss sound becomes the sh sound and the d sound becomes like the th sound in
the. The sound represented by ll is now the y sound. May use more Spanish or Portuguese
vocabulary. Terminal t sounds become d sounds. Terminal rs are pronounced instead of silent.

Gallic Style: The rr sound becomes a soft h sound, sort of like . May use French vocabulary.
The o sound becomes the u sound, as in the oo in food. Object pronouns are placed in front of the
verb, including infinitives. The article, instead of al, is now la, and l for nouns beginning with
vowels. The sound represented by is pronounced as the s sound.

Roman Style: The single s sound becomes pronounced like the z sound. The ae sound is
pronounced like the eh sound. May use more Italian vocabulary.

Slavic Style: The z sound is slurred, the ll sound is pronounced like ly. Ex. anullar is pronounced
as anulyar. The terminating r sound is pronounced. May incorporate Russian, Polish, or other

Slavic language vocabulary. The a sound becomes the uh sound, and the e sound is always
pronounced ay.

Eastern Style: Terminating n sounds become ng(a). Terminating t is dropped. May incorporate
Eastern language syntax and vocabulary. The rr sound is never rolled. The eu sound is re-written
as yu, and pronounced like the iu sound in the phonology chart. Instances in which the s and i/y
sounds come together are sounded as the shi sound, rewritten as xi. Ex. S -> X (Uncommon)
The sound represented by is pronounced as the d sound or the t sound.

Semitic Style: Terminating -r becomes -, all instances of ga become a. The e sound is


pronounced like the uh sound. The single s sound becomes the sh sound, and written as x, as in
the phonology (There are no single s sounds). The pronoun ho becomes o, and attaches to
infinitives as in the Iberian Style. Some users of this style may choose to drop terminal vowels.
May incorporate Semitic syntax and vocabulary.

Britannic Style: This is just speaking as it is written. There are no changes to the phonology,
vocabulary or syntax.

Direct Object Pronouns
!

!
Double Object Combinations
!

!
The partitive pronoun ne is used in expressions like:
!
Ne voleo comir. = I want to eat some.
!
Volevo prensirne. = I wanted to take some of it.
!
The neuter pronoun ho is used to substitute clauses or thoughts:
!
Avina non poteva andar al negozio. Aveo biss ca ho fassi.
Avina couldnt go to the store. I need you to do this.

Note: The Iberian style of using the object pronouns is a bit different. For verb conjugations
ending in vowels and for infinitives (after dropping the terminal r), you can attach the pronoun
as explained below.

!
Ne voleo comir. -> Voleo comin.
!
Volevo prensirne -> Volevo prensin.
!
The pronoun ho in the Iberian Style is instead xo, and would attach as such:
!
Avina non poteva andar al negozio. Aveo biss ca fassix.
!

Conditional Tense Conjugation:

To form perfect tenses, take the desired tense of the verb aver (to have/to be (auxiliary)) and add
the past participle.

To form gerunds and present participles, just add -ante, -ente, or -inte to the stems of -ar, -er, and
-ir verbs respectively.

The progressive tenses are formed using star and the gerundive forms. The imperative is simply
emphasized forms of the conjugations for the people one is commanding. That is, you have to
intone the present tense like you would for a command in English.

Naming Tradition
!

The tradition of speakers of Avrea is to adopt a new name. For example, my Avrean name is
Risaele Avreste. When one speaks in Avrea, one uses Avrea names. One derives a name from
the roots from the list below.

For roots that end in vowels, you can drop the vowel before adding another root to make the
name sound more smooth. This practice is entirely optional.

!
(Feel free to add similar-sounding roots to the list to expand the possibilities for naming.)
