In Response To: The little Esperanto of Bungie fans :P (Vid Boi)

: OK I stayed up all night trying to create grammar and vocabulary that sounded
: like it would be used by people who call themselves S'pht and like
: apostrophes. =)

: Here's a text in preliminary S'pht. Does it sound any good? What (if not
: everything) does not sound good? :P

: L'o S'pht'rhl r'aracthi r'acn'ktra,
: l'o t'ra t'orknctha t'ror'sct'rka,
: K'ter'k, S'pht'Kr, l'or'ar k'tra,
: t'racti Lh'owon.

: "When once S'pht fought in brutal combat,
: when hatred burned the tissues of one's
: enemy, one clan, the S'pht'Kr, reclusive
: and solitary, abandoned Lh'owon."

: And I promise it actually has real grammar and I didn't just make up a lot of
: words and put them together adding apostrophes here and there :P

Sounds awesome, throw in some random radio-static and I can hear them making demands through a small speaker :)
The S'pht and S'phtKr are a hive-mind, so the use of 'I' or the context of an individual one is mindstaggering for them. Small taskforces would be discribed like we discibe our hand to do things.
Dunno if that makes things easier for a grammer-syntax. I guess the idea of assigning tasks to small groups isn't uncommon for them, but they won't ever/can't imagine using a single identity to do things.
