  • Sally Caves (USA 2008) Conlang: Teonaht. Niffodyr tweluenrem lis teuim an. "The gods have retractable claws." I have worked on this language and its culture for about fifty years. The extensive webpages with drawings and samples of my script vanished when I abandoned GoDaddy, and will be restored on WordPress when I learn how to navigate it (help would be most welcome!). Teonaht is largely an a priori language with some lexical borrowings as its inhabitants mingle, clandestinely, with our own, but they remain largely isolated, and ever so slightly inhuman. I'm finishing a long novel devoted to them. Teonaht has some peculiar features, notably its OSV structure in formal writing and speaking (SOV in vernacular speech), and prefixing tense and aspect information on pronouns instead of the verbs. It makes a morphological distinction between volitional and non-volitional action and a large set of irregular nouns borrowed from a dead language, Nenddeyly. In the meantime I can direct you to the translation made by my ammanuensis, Issytra, of a Conlang Relay text she felt was utterly baffling: http://conlang.org/language-creation-conference/lcc5/3-teonaht/. My early machinima (or Real Time Animation--made under the sobriquet "Textcavation" and director "Hypatia Pickens") has me singing in Teonaht.
