So, Espering is the most simple and easy language for everyone. Nothing to learn besides new words, and how much you need here and now.
In Espering no lessons, only 9 of the simplest rules.
The Espering alphabet has 22 letters instead of 26 in English:
Aa Bb (Ch,ch) Dd Ee Ff Gg Hh Ii Jj Kk Ll Mm Nn Oo Pp Rr Ss Tt Uu Vv Yy Zz
There are no q, w, x: they were replaced by kv, v and ks. No separate c as k and s, although it is in ch (as in cheese).
1. Espering is pronounced exactly as it is spelt. Every letter has one sound, always the same. Pronunciation and spelling are close and very similar to the transcription of English..
Vowels: a [as a in father], o [as in dog], e [as in pet], i [as in dig], u [as in put], y [as in young, they].
Consonants: b, d, f, g [as in gay], h [like English h], j [as g in gem, or j in jam], k, l, m, n, p, r [as in ray], s, t, v, z- are the same as English letters and sounds.
Combinations of letters: ch [as in church], sh [as in ship]; rarely: ts [as in pizza] and zh [as in vision]. The sound th as in think and this= simple s and z: sink, zis.
2. The accent is more often on the next to last syllable of a word as in English. If needed, a capital (or big) letter indicates the accent: e-ing repit [repit] (engl. repeat [rip'i:t] ); e-ring auer [Auer] (engl. hour ['auə] ).
3. The same word in Espering dictionary can be a verb (infinitive and present tense), noun, adjective, adverb, etc.
4. The order of words in the sentence based on the context, on the meaning, but more often is: subject, predicate, adverbial (time, place, manner, reason, purpose, conditional...)
5. The adjective precedes the noun.
6. The plural form only for a nouns and made by attaching the ending -s. Where it is most convenient for pronunciation: -es. (dey (day)- deys (days); mans (month)- manses (months).
7. The verbs in three tenses: a) in present (and infinitive)- the basic dictionaries word forms. b) in the past any verb ending in -ed. There are no irregular verbs at all. Hi bied... (He was...). c) in the future vil stands before the verb: Ay (hi) vil gou... (I (he) shall (will) go...).
8. The negation: no [no] stands in front of the negated word. No, ay no vont (No, I do not want).
9. The question is asked with a question word or intonation.
That's the whole "lesson" of Espering!! And whole Espering is in his dictionary!!!
