How to read Dn'i language?

Postby jdogderr » Mon Jun 20, 2016 10:22 am

Is there any possible way to read Dn'i language? The reason I ask is because on the Cyan Website, there are the Dn'i characters: Image. When copied, it gives the result: .cevtavtE b’maryASatEot biv Is there a way to translate this?

It's been a long time since I've tried to read D'ni, and I was never really very good at it. There are lots of resources online if you're really interested, though.

Also try here: http://linguists.bahro.com/dniling.html
some of their links are dead, but they include some of the best resources out there.

The text on the website says "Thanks to all our [something]s", where [something]s probably means "fans".

The best resource for studying D'ni is Kh'reestrefah's A Dictionary of the Language of D'ni, which lists every known word with examples. Basic lessons by Domahreh are here.
