  • Note: The character "Ń" has fallen out of popular use in standard Palesmenian, but is now mostly used in Mgyan

Sentence Structure

Palesmenian follows a very standard sentence structure. The structure closely follows English structure, therefore making the language easy for English speakers to learn without much difficulty. For example, the following sentences are used to demonstrate this:

  • Éu éyvas été márcadá
    I am going to the store
  • bróré sémaséla
    My brother is nice

Dialects

Palesmenian has several dialects spoken in many regional areas. While most have under 500 speakers, they are still reported as dialects by the Palesmenian Census Office. The two largest dialect are Northern Palesh (spoken in the north, mostly around Súrajh and Mánázar) and Mgyan (mostly spoken in the south around the provinces of Gazar and Yáranhatrí). Although, most people consider Mgyan to be a separate language, it closely resembles standard Palesmenian in grammar and sentence structure. Most standard Palesmenian speakers can understand the northern dialect without much trouble. However, they may find challenge deciphering Mgyan. Because of this, many secondary schools and universities offer a course on Mgyan.
