More information on language in Lovia

Train Village Dutch is an extinct Lovian dialect that evolved from Dutch, but was heavily influenced by Lovian English. Train Village Dutch was spoken by a minority of Dutch-Lovians in Train Village. It was characterized by an extraordinary spelling. It went extinct in the 1960s. Fortunately, the language is well documented.

CharacteristicsEdit

  • A special word order: De <object referred> dii <qualification of the object> is en die voer <what is happening with it>. The object which is referred to is put first, unlike in Dutch where it is put after the qualification.
  • Most words which have the dutch oo sound have the oe sound in Train Village Dutch, due to English influence.
  • "ii" and "ie" are pronounced like West Frisian "ii": /iː/.

Examples Edit

  • De sloen dii groet is en die voer men opent.
    English: A great saloon for men is opening.
    Dutch: Een prachtige saloon voor mannen opent.
  • Yes, dii liemoen iis niit ta groet.
    English: Yes, that lemon is not too big.
