Aldarnic is a fictional language by Jörg Rhiemeier. The language was meant for an Elf-like conculture about which I don't really remember much, but abandoned soon. Some grammatical paradigms survive in an old notebook, they are given below.


The phonology of the language is unknown and probably was never adequately defined, but the romanization used in the notebook probably conformed to the Universal Transcription System which I used for an extended period of time.



There apparently were four declensions: consonantal, e-, a- and o-declension.

Both participles decline according to the consonantal declension. The exact functions of the two participles are forgotten.

The perfect was expressed by active participle + shu, the passive by passive participle + shu.
