The D'ni Language


Welcome to my modest writings on the D'ni language. I've provided a couple of guides to the letters, numbers, and grammar; the latter isn't intended to be a tutorial on how to speak or write the language, but you may use it for that if you so desire. I have also provided a dictionary of the words in the language. Unlike the previous dictionaries on this website, the new one is unified and may seem a little unusual at first. You can have a different index based on how you feel most comfortable: with D'ni transliterated letters ordered in either English or D'ni order, or a pure English ordering. Also, it requires Javascript enabled in order to view.

To properly view these pages, you'll need a proper D'ni font. If you don't have it installed, download Cyan's D'ni Font from the D'ni Linguistic Fellowship (As it seems that Cyan doesn't provide it anymore.).
