Introduction

Now working again on something new. Be here soon I hope!

Pronounciation and Appearance

While Theudo appears difficult to pronounce, many of the letters have infact lost most of their value. Thus the verb: tagthadth - to talk is pronounced as if it were spelt tagadth. There is a modern Theudo in the process of being established where many of the words have been altered to reflect the pronounciation. Thus in new theudo tagthadth is tagath.

While I am currently learning IPA I am unable to give an accurate representation of pronounciation at this current time. I will update this section when I can.

Verbs

Verbs proceed the subject of the sentence. Thus I am happy = Seth ég glekit. There are 2 verbs to be. The first being "yrth". The second verb is "Seth", it is used to describe occupation, health and feelings. Yrth being used for all other meanings.

Modal Particles

Theudo uses modal particles to emphasise the meaning in statements and opinions. They are vital to help aid meaning and give tone and greater understanding to the speakers/author's speech.


Modern Theudo

Old Theudo has went through a dramatic change. Many of the consonants clusters have become lenited or have lost their value. Thus ch > h or disappears. G > ch. gth - ch. Dth - tt. Thus previously one would write - Gadth ég spath inn than colíg now Gatt é spa in an colích - I am going a walk in the forest.

Only end consonants have been largely affected. The most affected front consontant is m becoming V. Gth and Dth can still be seen in the middle of words and are only affected if at the end.
