Vozgian Word Generator

This page demonstrates how Vozgian words are derived from Common Slavic, according to the sound changes described in the Grand Master Plan. Enter a Common Slavic word in the input box to the right and press the button „Common Slavic” to see the outcome in Ancient Vozgian and the five modern dialects. Of course, the outcome is not necessary something you will find in the Vozgian dictionary; it merely shows what the fully regular outcome would have been, and doesn't take into account grammar.

Words make their entrance in a language at different moments and in different stages of its development. If you want to see the outcome in Modern Vozgian for words, that appeared in the Ancient Vozgian stage (i.e. omitting the sound changes that distinguish Ancient Vozgian from Common Slavic), use the second button „Ancient Vozgian”.

This is a simple program and you can enter only one word at the time. While doing so, avoid using uppercase letters. To make the typing easier for you, some characters can be substituted by the following shortcuts:

š: sz
ž: zh, ż
č: cz
ě: ae, ä
ǫ: o~, ą
ę: e~
ъ: ", ŭ
ь: ', ĭ
ə: @
ö: oe
ü: ue
þ: th
ð: dh

Stress is an important element in the development of Vozgian. Now, I know stress in Common Slavic is a rather complicated matter, but let's just assume here that a syllable is either stressed or not. You can add stress in two ways: either write the stressed vowel in uppercase, or double the vowel in question. For example: "jedInъ" and "jediinъ" give the same result. If you don't add stress to any vowel of a word, it is assumed that the first syllable is stressed.
