Bingian language

The spoken and written Bingian language is very simple and logical in structure and grammar, mostly developed by the Ginken.

The language is based largely around the ideographic writing system that originated mostly from concrete concepts. The few abstracts that are present in the language are used with a special grammatical function, to express gender or tense for example.

There are few sounds in the Bingian language that can not be adequately represented by the Galactic Common alphabet. The sounds are transcribed by an apostrophe when writing Bingian in Galactic Common. The sounds vanish completely when they are written next to another.

When transcribed into Galactic Common, most all the letters are used for the same sounds with the exception of the following:

  • c is pronounced like the ch in chess
  • x is pronounced like the sh in shine
  • ' is widely used for sounds that are not represented by Galactic Common and relies on contextual clues.
  • vowels are fixed length, a double vowel indicates a long variant.

Word classes

Nit'x (verbs)

Nin'c (physical nouns)
Nin'c refers to physical things, or rare conceptual nouns, nearly identical with nouns in Galactic common. Nouns are designated by the prefix N-, which alone means "formation" and a variant suffix of -'l which means "essence" and is a vastly archaic term which may be left out in common use.

Nil'l (logical operations)
Nil'l (thoughts) are used much like linking words (and, or, if, therefore) most are formed with the prefix Gi, such as Gipo (and) and Gin'm (if)

Nig'c (prepositions)
Nig'c are fairly straight forward in use and are designated by the prefix "Hi"
Himo (from), Hino (at).

Ninox'l(unique to written language)
Ninox'l are ideograms that have no spoken translation. They are based on the described mental states used in natural Fenogen communication and are rarely used in modern written Bingian.

Nca'j (descriptive words)
Literaly "Texture" it describes attributes of things, like a mix of adjectives and adverbs

  • Posessive Nca'j are formed by replacing N- with Li- and describe an object based on it's relationship with other objects.
  • Descriptive Kzanos are formed by the prefix Sin- and describe the properties of the object.
