Phantasm in The Wheel | World Anvil


Phantasm is the language spoken by the beings known as Ravagers. The language is characterised by its sharp, angular sounds. The following article provides an overview of the basic grammar, syntax, and vocabulary of Phantasm.



  Phantasm features a range of consonants and vowels that produce sharp and angular sounds. The language's phoneme inventory includes the following:  
  p, t, k, q, b, d, g, f, s, x, h, m, n, r, l, z, v

  Phantasm adheres to specific rules for combining sounds into syllables:  
  • Syllable structure: (C)V(C), where C represents a consonant and V represents a vowel. This structure allows for syllables with just a vowel, a consonant-vowel combination, or a consonant-vowel-consonant combination.
  • Consonant clusters are generally limited to two consonants in a row.
  • Words are formed by combining one or more syllables.

Tenses in Detail

  The Phantasm language employs a more complex tense system to indicate the time when an action occurs. There are six basic tenses in Phantasm: present, past, future, present perfect, past perfect, and future perfect. Each tense is formed by adding a specific suffix or combination of suffixes to the verb root. This section will provide an in-depth look at the formation and usage of each tense in Phantasm.  
Present Tense
  The present tense in Phantasm is used to indicate actions or events occurring at the present time or habitually. To form the present tense, no additional suffix is added to the verb root.   Example: p'gath (to eat) I eat: k'a p'gath  
Past Tense
  The past tense in Phantasm is used to express actions or events that occurred in the past. To form the past tense, add the suffix "-th" to the verb root.   Example: p'gath (to eat) I ate: k'a p'gath-th  
Future Tense
  The future tense in Phantasm is used to describe actions or events that will happen in the future. To form the future tense, add the suffix "-yk" to the verb root.   Example: p'gath (to eat) I will eat: k'a p'gath-yk
Present Perfect Tense
  The present perfect tense in Phantasm is used to describe actions or events that have been completed at some point before the present. To form the present perfect tense, add the suffix "-zt" to the verb root.   Example: p'gath (to eat) I have eaten: k'a p'gath-zt  
Past Perfect Tense
  The past perfect tense in Phantasm is used to express actions or events that were completed before a specified time in the past. To form the past perfect tense, add the suffixes "-th" and "-zt" to the verb root.   Example: p'gath (to eat) I had eaten: k'a p'gath-th-zt  
Future Perfect Tense
  The future perfect tense in Phantasm is used to describe actions or events that will be completed before a specified time in the future. To form the future perfect tense, add the suffixes "-yk" and "-zt" to the verb root.   Example: p'gath (to eat) I will have eaten: k'a p'gath-yk-zt

  Phantasm employs a complex tense system with six basic tenses: present, past, future, present perfect, past perfect, and future perfect. These tenses are formed by adding specific suffixes or combinations of suffixes to the verb root, allowing for clear and nuanced expression of time in the language.

Register and Politeness

  Phantasm register and politeness refer to the different levels of formality and respect used in the language, depending on the social context and relationship between the speakers. While the demonic beings called Ravagers may not have the same social norms as humans, they still possess a social hierarchy and certain expectations in their interactions. This section will provide an overview of the registers and politeness strategies in the Phantasm language and their uses, as well as examples of their usage in sentences.  
Levels of Register
  • Formal Register: Used in interactions with higher-ranking Ravagers or during ceremonial occasions. This register is characterized by the use of more complex vocabulary, longer sentences, and a greater adherence to grammatical rules.
  • Informal Register: Used among peers or in casual situations. This register allows for a more relaxed use of grammar, shorter sentences, and the use of colloquial expressions or slang.
  • Intimate Register: Used among close friends or family members. This register is characterized by the use of affectionate or playful language, as well as a more relaxed adherence to grammar rules.
Politeness Strategies
  • Honorifics: In Phantasm, certain honorifics can be used to show respect or deference to a higher-ranking Ravager. These honorifics are typically added to the beginning or end of a name, such as "D'karn" (Lord) or "S'phar" (Master).
  • Indirectness: To show politeness, Ravagers may use indirect language or avoid making direct requests. For example, instead of directly asking for help, a speaker might say, "R'than k'a x'qu" (Knowledge is beneath me), implying that they need assistance.
  • Apologies and Gratitude: While Ravagers may not express apologies or gratitude in the same way humans do, they may use specific phrases or gestures to acknowledge favors or to show submission. For example, a speaker might say "K'a v'fi r'shar" (I am over eternity), acknowledging their indebtedness to another Ravager.
Examples of register and politeness in sentences
  • Formal: D'karn H'xoth, k'a s'pher-th l'yo r'ki d'ze k'a. (Lord H'xoth, I have discovered the depths of truth to bring to you.)
  • Informal: H'xoth, s'pher-th k'a l'yo. (H'xoth, I found the truth.)
  • Intimate: H'xoth, k'a s'pher l'yo r'ki k'a. (H'xoth, I got the truth for you.)
