What follows is a very small portion of the Necanic and English versions of the Necanecum's creation myth for the "Library" (see this post, if unfamiliar:http://www.writingforums.com/threads/146902-quot-The-Library-quot-A-basic-introduction-summary-(VERY-WIP)?p=1726178&posted=1#post172617 (http://www.writingforums.com/threads/146902-quot-The-Library-quot-A-basic-introduction-summary-(VERY-WIP)?p=1726178&posted=1#post1726178))

Also, after the verses, I've put a small bit of the Necanic Dictionary.This is not an attempt to put conlanging on a writing forum, as i'm not sure how that fits in here, but really just putting up some more to provide more background story to that whole "Library" thing in the other post.

1.Obeiatovum, eir Somnierael, eir Vialanieriel, eir Vvunieren.
Uiar, eir Uiarbhohiem, su svere ne Uiarvoie.
Ne Obvunier, vu weigh set, oben ne Tovocyr.
Tovocyr, eir shuine svere veid Seadhaugh, Et'a'Anec'a'Diyn.
Obeiatovum, ken Obvunier, ken Tovocyr, ken Almet, Enohiem ve iona Obendenuiarod.

(Rough translation): The All-holding Home of the People, by way of the Dark Male Power, the Light Female Power, and the Grey balanced power. Time, by way of the Time-Guiding-First, who weaves the time-paths. The Holders of Power, who are seven, hold the Homes of the Lesser People. The Homes of the Lesser People, by way of the act of weaving the three realms, mind-body-spirit. The All-holding home of the people, the Holders of Power, The Homes of the Lesser People, the Greater Above Ones, The First had made in the Time-of-not-time.

2. Ubor Obeiatovum vu weigh, ne Hiem te toveia Eno'Obeiatovhiem, Obendenuiarod.
Ve vunea pesh ne Hiem te vuneaden sen Teia'Amat, se enweigh Tamat'Nuhr, eir Ubornieren.
Ken uiar ve vunea, ne Hiem te irur pesh te kelirken maur Tamat'Nuhr, ano eir Ubornieren, pesh te ionaken boeta.


(Rough translation): Before the All-holding home of the people had being, the First were inhabiting the Fore-coming All-holding home of the First, in the Time-of-not-time. It had passed that the First did not give passing to the Hungry-Other, who became the Other/Outer Chaos, by way of the Old Balanced Powers. And time had passed, the First has seen that they could not be able to battle the Outer Chaos by way of only the Old Balanced Power, that they could not make many/much of.



Necanic "Dictionary"

"En" - 1
"Vo" - 2
"Veid" - 3
"Het" - 4
"Vash" - 5
"Koru" - 6
"Set" - 7
"Ket" - 8
"Ine" - 9
"Tsur" - 10
"D'sur" - 100

Necanic numbers function thusly: numbers above ten are denominated by firstly writing how many "tens", and then the number paired with it. For instance, thirteen would be written as "Tsur-Veid", fourteen as "Tsur-Het", ect. Numbers higher than nineteen follow the same pattern, for example, fifty-five being written as "Vash-Tsur-Vash", or ninety-seven, written as "Ine-Tsur-Set".

My apologies, but for some reason, this will not appear as anything but a wall of text, despite my multiple attempts at editing.

Fixed.
