Notes on language generation:
Random mode is also known as Random CVC since it uses functions
to build random blocks of consonants or vowels and string them
The Warriors ANG is inspired by the Gurmukhi (Punjabi) alphabet
with some extra emphasis on K and J sounds.
The Avians ANG have a scope, subject, several
modifiers, and possible honorifics. So, a translation of Q'Tez
(Kweh-Tehz) would be "all of the People" and Tzh'Falsa (short
buzz-fall-sah) could be "my personal blade hen", a female mercenary
or bodyguard. The Avians syllabary does not correspond to any
specific human language as much as it does to assorted bird sounds.
The Lizards ANG is noted for heavy use of S and rolled R sounds.
There is also no sharp I sounds in their vowel set so the end result
is a rather breathless feel to their language.
The Fu Manchu ANG is a derivative of the Chang ANG which has a strong
Chinese flavor to the language. The language has drifted over the
centuries. This name generator uses hyphens to indicate joined syllables
that are ran together when pronounced. As a result, they view their
language as smooth and flowing and Chang as stilted and unnatural.
The Bugs ANG is composed of a narrow alphabet of clicking and popping
sounds that are constructed into long chains to form complex words.
As previously mentioned, the Chang ANG sounds similar to Chinese.
But, there is no relationship between actual Chinese words and what
is created. The Chang are sticklers about clear pronounciation and
use the accent mark to indicate short pauses in their words which can
have an impact in the meaning of a word or phrase.
The Singers ANG is actually based on a complex musical scale. The
rough translations of the Singer's appear as non-sensical poetry.
The results can be a little confusing since the Singers tend to
express their emotional or mental state as a distinct entity and
their conversation might carry several over or under tones as well.
Give them a baseball and they may tell you of a flawed spirit that
yearns to fly. Communication can be problematic with other races.
The language of the Hive was old before the first humans began to
poke reeds into mud cakes. Their language is based of a picto-
graphic alphabet and it is inspired by the Mayan alphabet.
The Others ANG is based on Lovecraftian sounds that a pool of sentient
slime might make, the language has a slow and bubbly feel to it. It
has complex sounds that are difficult for some races to pronounce.
The Machines ANG puts little stock in flowery names and tend to
use functional nomenclature to identify units by command group,
type, and ID number. Often units in a fleet will belong to the
same group and then are broken down by type and ID number. For
example, Zeta fleet might be composed of units whose names all
begin with Zeta. There does seem to be a sense of humor or at
least irony buried in their data cores. Peacekeepers and
Negotiators are usually upgunned and deadly variants of existing
The User Created Alien Language section allows the viewer to create
their own language rules and syllabaries for making up names. The
vowel and consonant lists are only suggestions. Characters and
punctuation can be added or subtracted to create new alphabets.
The user can select the frequency of vowel or consonant distribution
as well as the number of words and syllables to generate. The prefix
and suffix fields allow for the addition of more name rules.
