Short and long S, Ȿ

Letters S and Ȿ have a two miniscule versions, the short (s, ȿ) and the long (ſ, ᶘ). The rules on the usage of the versions are:

  • Short version is used before a vowel: Әsa, Ȿedȳ
  • Short version is used on the end of the word: Los, Kuȿ
  • Long version is used before a consonant: Radoſƭ, Moᶘƭ
  • If the consonant is syllabic, short version is used: Slza, Ȿlk
  • In case the /s/ or /ʃ/ sound is syllabic, long version is used: Pſt, Pᶘt[2]
  1. The term "Odluчina" comes from Bogmian verb "Odluчiꞇi", meaning "To seperate". The term comes from the separation of the settlers during the Empire of Three Kings from the rest of the country, which caused their separation and linguistic differentiation from the original mix of Bogmian and Zhengian settlers, intermixing mainly with the Borelian aboriginals.
  2. The sounds S and Ȿ (/s/ and /ʃ/) are syllabic only in very rare cases in interjections and words derived from them. Most famous are the interjections "Pſt" and "Pᶘt", which both denote a hushing sound
