I forgot to post for chapter 10, but at least I remembered for Chapter 11.
Sadly, I haven’t been updating much since I’ve been trying to balance work, classes, and writing along with life in-between. That being said, I’ve had a nice two days of straight writing, and I have almost completed chapter 11. 🙂
I know some of you will ask, and so I will answer this question:
What is an iznata?
Well, the proper question would be, who, not what.
In Gaitan there are several different languages Sydi (Southern), Deri (Northern), Chi (Eastern), Mori/ Morzi (West), and Gaitish (Gods language/ forgotten words). Every group had their own language, but for political or trade they rely mainly on the common language (what we could call English).
The word iznata is Morzi, deriving from the words elder [ize (male) or iza (female)] and nata (mother). Putting them both together you get the word iznata, or grandmother. Pate is father and so izpate would means grandfather.
NOW YOU KNOW…know…know…know…
Anywho… I didn’t include the rules to the language in this post, as it isn’t really that important. With that said, creating languages are fun and challenging but in a good way.
Now, that I have updated ya’ll I am going to have dins before completing an excel project that’s due at midnight. XD
