word order and agglutination

solxlanni has SVO(subject verb object) word order, this is complimented by VSO(verb subject object) . solxlanni has many affixes(mainly prefixes) and accepts nouns as affixes. nouns,pronouns and adjectives can have affixes,but proper nouns will have affixes seperated by a hyphon(-). animate and first person pronouns can be suffixes on verbs.

Adjectives can come before or after a word or be standalone. they are stuck to the word they're discribing. in larger agglutinated words all adjectives are stuck on the same side of each word block. so a single word block can be a_ or _a but a word with multiple blocks will be _a_a... or a_a_... (each block is a root word{noun,verb} and it's adjectives)

basic prefixes







/ad/ or /an/

anðelw - enemy




agahedl - parents




gormaw - over-sized or massive


all as in allseeing


hoȝgaȝar - omnipotent


relation distant


peȝðelw - coworker or acquaintance

don't select me

basic suffixes






english -able welsh -dol -dwy

/ol/ or /dol/

weledol - visible


one who is

/ar/ or /aɹ/

hoȝwelar - one who is allseeing


verb-aliser, makes an adjective into a verb. always paired with a verb-prefix(like cre[to make])


crebaxu - compress/shrink [to make small]


belonging to a land/country


cymraag - welsh

since solxlanni allows nouns to be used as affixes it is possible to do recursion with basic sentences just as one word. for example "i was playing with my bald friend" can be "ne xwar ef nȝ angwaȝolðelw"(literally " i[past] play with my [one with no hair]friend"). it is ill-advised to go too far though. since, even though you can break them down, it's not easy. for example "peȝðelwxwarnȝefempertesatarndyk" [peȝðelw{coworker}|xwarnȝ{i played}|efemperte{with [singular animate indirect] on}|satarndyk{saturday::root}] is huge and it means "coworker i played with on saturday"


despite having welsh as a big influence, solxlanni doesn't have many mutations. and the ones that it does have make sense on paper. the two mutation rules are called compression[crebaxu(to make small)] and possession[rantece(take a part of)]. possession mutation, this occurs when a suffix starts with a vowel and the word the suffix is being stuck to ends with a vowel, the vowel from the suffix takes the vowel from the root word. an example of that would be "caða"[drink] becoming "dancaðu"[underdrinking or to drink little]. compression mutation is when two matching consonants become a long consonant(short and long constonants/vowels explained in orthography) this mutation is best described by a table.

Word order addendum17032021

The top paragraph wasn't quite accurate. solxlanni uses a strict word order of SVO complimented with VSO in some contexes. This can be extended to VSV/O. The compliment is used almost exclusively in an interrogative mode, but is sometimes used in the curious mode if tone change is omitted or being flaunted. These word orders persist in agglutination, seeing as agglutination is an extension of the spoken language into the written language. Agglutination also has it's own word order based around agglutinating nouns and verbs together("saeþune"[i shot?] and "nesaeþar"[i shot]).


Unlike English, which let's you flaunt every aspect of it's anglo-saxon-norman-celtic grammar, solxlanni is a very literal language. It doesn't utilise context in the same way as english, it more closely matches old-Welsh, and because of this it may sound wierd if you use your grubby english context on it.

Solxlanni context is based on the sentance and scenario, whereas English uses more conversation based, relatial, and scenario orientated context. I am not referring to the written sentance, but rather the spoken sentance. The spoken sentance is a part of a conversation, they can be short or really long.

If you imagine everything you say following a pattern of setting a subject/object and creating a token/tokenset for it, then you have your space to flaunt the grammar. This is used in evasive manner quite often in English, but in solxlanni you may see

  "gwna ci ef ti"[what did you do with her]
  "angelica? thi? ne angwna umanpeþe ef ti"[angelica? her? i didn't do anything with her]

That probably works better if your use to using plural pronouns to show respect or admiration. In solxlanni, similar to old Welsh, the pronouns you use are consistent. In the example above, the second speaker swapping plural for singular is placing distance between him and angelica.

It's not an absolute example, since body-language will be used no matter what and that usually overrides a lot of grammatical stuff in most languages.
