    [OWDP] Komal

    None of my Komali notes are in a presentable format, so I'll just going to add them here piece-meal. At some point I may/will give them a better treatment, but until then please feel free to comment on anything I throw on the wall.

    Komali Language

    OLD KOMALI SAMPLE LEXICON

    Common: Ensaed (adventure location in Ancient Oerid kingdom of Baena)
    Old Komali: Ekasâda
    Meaning: meeting place

    Old Komali: shada
    Meaning: place (root)
    Pronounciation: /Sada/

    Old Komali: enha
    Meaning: to meet (root)

    Common: Baena
    Old Komali: Bâna

    Common: Banai
    Meaning: People of Baena

    Common: hero
    Old Komali: bakhour

    Common: Bakhoury Coast
    Old Komali: Bakhourabar
    Meaning: the land of heroes


    Notes:
    - shada also exists in some Zahindi dialects.
    - shada appears in modern place names as the suffix –jahn
    - shada becomes asâda in Old Komali and asaed in Common
    - ‘meeting place’ is enha-shada --> enhasâda --> ekasâda --> ekasaed --> ensaed
    - â transforms into (among other things) ae and e in Common.
    - bakhour is the root of the name for the Bakhoury Coast, as well as that of the Baklunish people.

    Unogonduri

    UNOGONDURI

    Unogonduri (Hungodisya): royal dynasty of ancient Komal, named after its legendary founder Unogondur (Hungodis).

    * * * * *

    Note: The term 'Unogonduri' will be appearing in the article I wrote on the Baklunish Army for the upcoming issue of OJ. Here's the relevant snips...

    Then came heroes from the west - equestrian nomads honed by centuries of warfare on the steppes of central Oerik. These warriors trained from an early age in the arts of horsemanship and archery, for which they are famous to this day. - Komali chronicles of the Unogonduri dynasty (1)

    Related Footnote (1): At that time Komal was locked in a war with the Sakuri, whose well-trained heavily-armed troops were clearly outclassing the Unogonduri light infantry. Paynim tribes helped the Komali prevail, displacing the Sakuri from the shores of the Ghayar - a land which the Komali there-after dubbed Bakhourabar, “The Land of Heroes.” ‘Bakhour’ is an Old Komali word, meaning hero. It is the root of the name for the Bakhoury Coast, as well as that of the Baklunish themselves.
