This functions like a translation dictionary, bridging High Mercian and English. In addition to the lexicon, you can find grammar and syntax rules for the language below. We always welcome additional words and rules for all of the languages, if you would like to see anything added, please submit an entry to the Addenda.
ADJECTIVES AND ADVERBS: Adjectives and adverbs usually come before the subject in Mercian, however, they will sometimes follow a subject with the use of "of." Adjectives and adverbs will almost always end in -o.
PRONOUNS: Pronouns are only used in Mercian to refer to the self and the second person "you"; for third person, the proper name is always used or implied.
VERBS: Verbs are conjugated depending on tense and intent. Below, you can find a list of all endings for the conjugated variations.
Nothing in the Mercian language is gendered except proper names and nouns, specifically when they are used as a subject to replace a proper name. Words that are not used in this way will be gender neutral and have neither a masculine or feminine default.
MASCULINE NAMES: add -ius
FEMININE NAMES: add -ia or -a
GENDER NEUTRAL NAMES: add -o
PEOPLE: add -ii, vowels will be dropped in the process
NOUNS: add -bus or -us, vowels will be dropped in the process
Verbs are conjugated by tense in Mercian and follow simple conjugation rules. You may find them below. It is important to note that only the first verb will be conjugated. All verbs after the conjugated one will remain in their base form.
BASE: Verb bases will always end in -t, usually preceded by a vowel such as -at, -ot, -it, or -et. IE. Run >> Curret
CURRENT: Verbs that indicate an action is being acted out in the present end in -tur, much like English's -ing. IE. I am running >> Io essetur curret.
FUTURE: Verbs indicating an action will be done in the future end in -erit. IE. I will run >> Io currerit.
PAST: Verbs indicating an action happened in the past end in -abo. IE. I ran >> Io currabo.
