If you’ve come this far, you must be either an interested linguist, an incredibly boring person with too much free time, an intergalactic space-god, or an Esterite (citizen of the New Worcester Kingdom). Whatever you are, whoever you are, and whyever you’re here, you should now complete the following translation exercises, to help gain a better understanding of Vocatae:

“How I wish that I possessed the power of a despot,” exclaimed Thomas Jefferson.

(inquring looks)

“Yes,” he continued. “I wish I was a despot that I might save the noble, the beautiful trees that are daily falling sacrifices to the cupidity of their owners, or the necessity of the poor.”

“And have you no authority to save those on the public grounds?” someone asked.

“No,” answered Mr. J., “only armed guard could save them. The unnecessary felling of a tree, perhaps the growth of centuries, seems to me a crime little short of murder.”

[The World in 1800 - by Olivier Bernier: pg. 212]

That’s it! Now that you’ve studied this guide for many hours you are ready to begin speaking Vocatae with the utmost confidence. Vocatae is a member of the Tremnyza language family, a family of languages I created, which includes Tremni, Nyzorlian, Wrahnig, and the Comet and Krypten languages. All of these are constructed languages. But, behind them all is Vocatae, the language of the imaginary Legion, and a semi-official language of the New Worcester Kingdom (a real micronation). It is a direct, simple language, without complication. Words can be nouns, sometimes verbs and adjectives and adverbs all at the same time! Why, because the meaning is clear from the context. It is a language of purity without the constraints of bizarre declensions or conjugations. Since 1996, it has been a language virtually unknown to anyone, and that is about to change. :)

“Vocatae vocaspicarum, pheum cub auje vocati aerdeic cub avamaic.”
Speak of Vocatae, the esteemed language of kings and of gods.

“REMUZ!”
FINIS!
