Romanization

Long vowels are held twice as long and represented by an macron, i.e. ā,ē,ī,ō,ū. A circumflex accent is used to indicate that the vowel sound is voiced in the back portion of the mouth, while a trema accent indicates the vowel is voiced in the central mouth. Additionally, there are no silent /e/’s.

Phonotactics

Draconic only uses coda in the last syllable of the word or in the first syllable if it lacks an onset consonant. All syllables central to the word are open syllables.

The third to last syllable always gets the stress unless another syllable has a long vowel. If the word has less than three syllables, the stress goes on the first syllable. An acute accent over a vowel, such as /é/ denotes a deviation from the stress rules. In that case, the syllable with the acute access gains the stress.


Syntax

The basic word order of Draconic is SOV; subject object verb. Adjectives are derivative of verbs and follow the noun to which they describe. Adpositions are also derived from verbs and, as such, are postpositions. Possession is listed as possessor followed by possessee. So, the sentence: “The man’s dog eats food from the big bowl.” would be written: “The man’s dog food eats bowl big from.”


Grammar

Plurality
