Well, seeing as there's a majour stall in getting the book published, I figured we should list all Xen'vi names (of people, places, life forms, objects, events, etc.) and see if we can improve them to A) make them fit with Xen'vi speech (no nazal sounds, etc.), B) lessen clichés (such as replacing "vi") and C) make them fit with the sound of the word's nation/language of origin.

Since many Xen'vi words are spelt with an N somewhere, I suggest that this might simply indicate the momentary closure of a vocal orifice. We may have to make a letter for it.


So, let's starts with "Xen'vi", specifically the "vi" suffix. We need a new Xen'vi suffix for "people".

Merry Christmas. ^^



Yeah, that's a good idea. Let's start with replacing the N's at the start of some words. (Oh noes, Nash'ir's name will have to change... D= )

Lol. I mean rather check over your article list again, as there were a few others as well (eg. Nyrander) that you didn't include. I can actually also go get those, as you sent the article list to me a while back. Smile

What is a Nyrander?

I'm on vacation right now, so I'm not going to be doing much work. I'd get more names but I have to go now.

Nyrander is the capital city of the Svia'vi and I'm 96% sure I mentioned it somewhere in the book.

I'm gonna have to get used to using "Zen'ti" (the "ti" doesn't quite feel all that right, tough...).
