I love Getsji. I think that’s a great name. I like Gethwu almost as well. And since, among my main characters, anyway, I’m only going to be able to use one name beginning in the letter G, I nominate Getsji, and move on to my next base name, Viij. And from there to Tei, and so on. Note that these are all first names. Create some simple last names by dumping the gender suffix, and perhaps by adding a syllable or three For Getsji, I came up with a simple last name of Konhiiro. Getsji Konhiiro. I like it, and it hasn’t been done to death in every fantasy and SF novel since time began.
But there is another and better way to create words for your language, and it starts with the so-far-unused Root column on your Vocabulary Sheet. Breaking Language Into Pieces Adjectives, words that describe nouns, generally have a way to distinguish themselves as adjectives. Some languages use prefixes, some use suffixes, some use word placement, some use stresses or tones. English adjectives frequently end in –y, –ous, or –ful. The same is true for adverbs. Different languages, different gigs.
These can be either vowel sounds or consonants, or both. You’ll see a line of basic English sounds running down the left-hand column of the sheet. Draw a line through any letters you’ve decided not to use, and then through the entire line of boxes to the right of each of those letters. If you’re not sure, you can use the “close your eyes and stick a pin in it” method of reducing your letter count. USEFUL TIP: For improved readability of dialogue in text, leave yourself at least one vowel. You’ve made your first simplifications.
