The earliest forms of Arcadian originated several tens-of-thousands of years ago, resembling hieroglyphics. Over time, the language became simplified, its complex drawings becoming individual characters. Words have been revamped to be easier to pronounce, and with less confusion between accents and species.
Format and Organization Edit
Arcadian is composed of characters representing spoken syllables. It can be spoken across species with developed vocal chords.
The Arcadian alphabet has thirty basic characters, made of strokes and dots. Each character has an audible pronunciation.
Words in Arcadian are formed by joining characters together. For instance, Ar-Cay-Dee-En, which translates easily into other languages as Arcadian.
Arcadian is written left-to-right, without indentation. Between each complete word is a space, standard sizing being 1.5 characters wide.
Ending Sentences Edit
There are three ways to properly end a sentence in Arcadian, stops, commands, and questions. However, a QUESTION will have two question marks, one at the beginning and one at the end.
Pauses EditWhen a sentence needs a pause in between words, a dash ( - ) is used. These function similar to commas, but are not used when listing nouns.
