Combination Rules

Combine options...

sytmiti+xy = group + with

sytmitixy = join to

In the Tripian Language, you can combine two nouns, or make a noun+verb combo, this is usually only used in Traditional Tripian. The Modern Tripian usually only combined two nouns to make a new one.


xarsytmiti > atmospheric system (noun+noun)

frishuqixartap > flowing water (noun+verb)

Kra can be added to any word to mean the opposite, causing some opposites to not even have words.


kra+kymewpl > krakymewpl > not simple

Just as Ze (Sze) can be added to mean "yes" or they want that, or want to do it.


zexartap > yes water

zefrishuqik > it flows/i have electricity

When adding a suffix or combining a word...

...ending in double vowels:

Take off one of the vowels of the double.


Aiduu > Aiduek

...containing double vowels:

Take off all letters back to just ONE of the double vowels.


Chiirk (cut) > Chiding (cutting)

When adding a prefix to a word containing double vowels, take off all letters up to the second vowel of the double vowel.


Chiirk (cut) > Iaqirk (will cut)


ek - possesive suffix

diaq - past tense verb
ding - present tense verb


iaq - future tense

Example: iaqirk - will cut

Word Structures

Tripian words often contain double vowels. Rarely will double vowels be found that are not similar. The most common time two dissimilar vowels will be combined is in possesive words, like "aiduek" (the "ue"). Double vowels also NEVER start Tripian words.

Double Vowels

Double vowels are almost always i's or u's, though often times double a's can be found. Usually double vowels are pronounced different from their single counterparts. "Ii" is pronounced: "eye-eh", "uu": "oo", and "aa": "ey-oo".

Double i's tend to be paired with k's and r's as well (iik and iir), double a's are usually found preceding an n or a q (aan and aaq).
