Mara Taniwha + Hymn to Inanna by keyanadrake Mara Taniwha + Hymn to Inanna by keyanadrake
CLICK ME: [link]

So, as I promised, a recording of me saying some Ranqa.

Now you get to see me blushing and stumbling over my words but I said I'd do it, so now it is done.

Next I just have to figure out how to submit it to the conlanger gallery.

Feel free to laugh but I will throw something if you say I'm cute. I know I'm cute and I'm sick of hearing about it.

I have NO idea what are You talking about x'D Too much informations at once! *tries to spell the word out loud, breaks his tongue* x'D

And yes, that chant seriously sounds as if said in Hebrew...:plotting:

Wonderful video :clap: it was really nice to HEAR how all this was spelled, it cleared a lot in my head, now I know better how to read it all in my head :nod: :hug:

I agree with Nick! Ranqa was a VERY pleasing sounding language. And much easier then my Hseisich. I clearly should have done yours for the challenge. :P

AND I agree with everyone else! Your accent is AMAZING. This makes me want to watch a video by an aussie and see if I can tell the difference between aussie and kiwi. :3

THIS IS THE BEST. I LOVE THIS. YAAAAAAAAAAAAY RANQA! ♥

Ranqa sounds very interesting. Very nice. Kind of like something that would feel really good while speaking, if that makes sense? Like it would just flow off the tongue.

:giggle: I'm glad you like it. :3

And, once you get used to the non-English consonant sounds it really does flow off the tongue. I only wish I was less shy to show folks.

I'm thinking of practising more and posting it up on youtube. Part of my long term website plans included having video logs, pronunciation guides and question&answer videos for the Time Speaker Universe, so I should probably practise so I sound and seem less anxious for when the time comes that I'll be doing it a lot. :giggle:

You'll get the hang of it soon enough. I have no doubts about that. :giggle:

That sounds like an awesome idea! Like really cool. That sounds like it would just be amazing to find if you were a reader looking more into it. I can't believe nobody's done something like that before! :D

You sounded a lot different than expected somehow. In a good way, no worries! I'm not sure why, but it all made me smile.

I want your accent. But it's doubtful it would sound as good on me.

Wow... :laughing: What can I say? Oh, I can't say it's cute, but it's cute. No mistaking your accent for an American, that's for sure... :rose: That's a rose. We throw 'em at the divas on stage. Brava brava! ;-) I know you were nervous, but you can try it again sometime after more practice. Haha, someday maybe I'll post some conlang... Not tonight though...

Like I said, sounds Hebrew. Whatever it's very pretty, and your accent is interesting, but I still am a tard and would have trouble picking it out from the myriad other accents in the world.

OH MY GOOOOOOSHHHHHHHHHHHH.


Your accent makes me fangirl. Okay, I'm going to watch the rest of it now.
Commentary.

You say "sentences" so amazingly. :iconiloveitplz:
XD "They'll kill you and they eat you..." :lmao::lmao:

-silences self-
You say "essence"...xD :love:

I really like how Ranqa sounds. Very Polynesian, I think. :nod: I also like the way you've transcribed [z] -> x and [f] -> ph, since those make it look pretty as well as sound pretty. Well done! I can't wait to see more! 8D

I want more conlanging! :icon8buckplz:

keyanadrake Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2011  Professional Writer
:giggle: Yus, more conlanging.. but what specifically?

I was thinking of greetings, or some of the short phrases you learn of other languages as a tourist... or I could go over the pronunciation of the swear words/phrases in Rise of Hawk etc... or translate specific stuff... I don't know yet. :shrug: What do you think?

I think pronunciation would be good, and probably some practical phrases.

OR GRAMMAR FOR US GRAMMARINTENSE FOLK! :D I would love to hear about grammar and your thoughts on it. :heart:

I can do pronunciation no sweat... Grammar... not sure. You'd have to give me examples of what grammar parts to do, I'll figure out what the words mean and then check all my Ranqa notes. I tried to do a grammar thing on the conlanger forum, but I don't think I succeeded. :giggle:
